With a recession looming on the horizon, you could be faced with increased employee stress and low morale in your office. Here’s how to weather the storm
It lurks silently, waiting to rear its ugly head.
It wants nothing more than to wreak havoc on productivity in your workplace. You see it in the frustrated faces of your staffers, in the much-too-blatant viewing of job sites at work, in the untimely and suspicious sick days, and in the muffled whispers of employees at their desks.
Often times, its cause is unexplainable. Other times, you know for a fact what caused it. Regardless, once it takes hold of your office, you’re in big trouble if you don’t handle it properly.
It’s low employee morale, and it’s waiting to strike at any moment.
Sound a little overdramatic? It shouldn’t. Low employee morale leads to decreased productivity, unscheduled absences and turnover. Translation: Low morale is going to cost you.
