Morale Boosts and Teaming
Managing employee is a daunting part of navigating the emotional landscape of people you depend on. Fortunately, investing in mental health is a valuable way to boost spirits during these economically trying times.
Finding Emotional True North…
…when Spirit & Pride Are Compromised
Recognizing individual or group needs when morale is low can be difficult. In fact, the signs of lowered self-esteem often lurk below the surface disguised as shoddy work, lackluster efforts, or bad attitudes. Clearly, it would time-intensive to divine the emotional needs of each employee.
Community + Identity = Stability
Realizing that today is a great day to do something new is a step toward team revival! Have Fun! Reset the emotional stability of your workplace by helping employees better identify with their work community. Don’t worry. We’re not talking Brave New World-esque mass-hypnopaedia sessions. We’re talking about improving the feeling of self-worth with real social engagement.
Tickle My What?
A huge part of boosting morale in any context is learning how to tickle the brain’s reward center. It’s a fact that human brains crave reward stimuli: Earning a bonus or receiving an Award for Outstanding Achievement in the Field of Excellence from Mr. Burns might make a person feel good, but you can’t afford to give everyone a bonus and you can only print off so many of those rewards.
As long as warm blood is flowing through their veins, every human values time well spent accomplishing meaningful goals. Every human also values stimulation. So, we offer a variety of “recession budget”-friendly games, events and activities to improve employees’ feeling of self-worth, team building, and team spirit.
Don’t despair! Take a mental health day, get out there, and have fun! Learn more about our recreational, educational, and developmental family of games and events. Or leave your e-mail to get a quote on a truly affordable escape.
Translating Our Experience
After many years of doing this, here’s what we think the result of a good event should be:
- A deeper understanding between co-workers
- Co-workers like each other better than before
- An experience of having performed well together
- A feeling that “we’re good at what we do”
- An increased desire to cooperate and help each other out
- Specific learnings that can be applied at work
- And maybe most of all: A sense that the event was “time well spent.”
