After just over 2 years of working from the comfort of their own homes, many employees are finally returning to the office! However, whilst employers may be excited to welcome them back, it’s safe to say that the office atmosphere is perhaps less than appealing to some employees. If your employees aren’t looking forward to the return, here’s how you can spruce up your space to boost office morale!
Why is office morale so important post-pandemic?
The pandemic forced multiple businesses to alter how they operate. And as a result, remote working went from being a rarity to becoming a cultural norm.
But now, as we welcome people back into the office, it’s clear some of our employees are hesitant to leave their home comforts behind.
While the office may offer less flexibility regarding working hours and wardrobe choices, it offers many other advantages. So it’s our responsibility to do all we can to boost office morale and remind people why an office environment is a wonderful place to work.
How to boost office morale
There are many ways to boost office morale – so instead of reeling off a long list of suggestions, we’ve limited it to our top 3.
1. Identify your employees’ needs
- What are they looking to gain from their return to work?
- How can you make their office space more comfortable?
- What do they need to ease their transition?
Once you understand your employees’ needs, you can start to adapt your office space to make it more accommodating.
2. Outline the benefits of having an office
Some staff members may be reluctant to return to the office simply because they don’t see the point. So, it’s your job to remind them that the office is the perfect setting for promoting camaraderie and collaboration. (It’s also instrumental in distinguishing between work-life and home-life.)
3. Spruce up your office space
After two years of working from home, you don’t want your employees to return to a dark, drab office. You want your office to be welcoming and motivating!
