Find some fun activities to motivate your employees.

Employee Motivation activities: Top 80 Ideas list

Sometimes employees need someone to encourage them and make them feel good about what they do. When you notice that there is minimal communication in the office, and everyone seems to have a dark face accompanied by a hunched back walk, then it's time to bring life back to your staff. Research has shown that team exercises are the best to bring the life you want to see in your workers. Newbies are the worst affected because they find it hard to associate and make new friends. The nervousness of wondering if everyone will accept them makes them very nervous and puts them under pressure. To make them feel welcome and connect with the older employees, employers plan to a day out full of activities. To the newbies, it gives them a sense of belonging and to the older ones it lights up a new fire to commit to the company again. They not only motivate but improve communication among them creating a more cohesive and productive work environment. The newbies also get to meet and make new friends.
