When you stop and think about it, what kind of turnover rate do you have at your business?
In the event it is rather high, have you thought of any steps you can take to change this?
Having a high turnover rate can lead to lost income, bad customer service, and low employee morale and so on.
That said are you willing to do what it takes for a productive and yet more fun workplace?
Are Employees Happy Working with You?
In doing more to come up with a happier workplace, here are a few options to look at if not already doing so:
1. Opportunities to succeed and grow – Can you say your brand provides employees with a chance to do well? Not having such a working environment can backfire on you. Be sure to review your pay scale, if benefits are involved, the ability to climb the company ladder and more. You may be shooting yourself in the foot with an atmosphere that too many employees do not care for. Keeping the bulk of your workers productive and happy is key for your company’s ability to succeed.
2. Putting the web to work – Most companies allow for a few short breaks. That is during the day and the standard half hour or hour for a meal break. That said you can come up with some fun things for your employees to do when taking breaks. It is no surprise that many take time out during their workdays and often to check personal email or texts. With that in mind, you can set aside such breaks for your team. This should prevent them from taking those breaks on their own throughout the day. When they have scheduled breaks to check non-work, email, texts and more you could solve an issue.
3. Fun activities in the office – What do you do for fun around the office? While you may have the occasional Happy Hour event, what about daily things to give workers a nice break? One option would be a setup for video games. Yes, playing video games in the office when breaks allow can take some pressure off your team. Find an area of the office if space allows where workers on a break can go and play when doable. You can find the right equipment online. That is such as the best PS5 headset for each worker to a mechanical keyboard and more. Outfit the video gaming area with the right equipment and make it a fun destination. This is for those employees looking to burn off a little steam and have a good time in the process.
4. Flexibility where to work – It is not uncommon to find more employees working remotely. Before this, did you already offer such flexibility? Being able to work some or all the time from home can actually make for more productive employees. It not only has them in more comfortable surroundings, many of them are able to then avoid long commutes. Unless you have specific folks with needs to be in the office, you may want to consider more working from home.
As you look to come up with ways to make your business more fun for workers, what ideas do you have working in your head?
