How Do You Reinforce Team Spirit?

Motivated employees who share similar goals will contribute their best.

Keep these  ideas in mind in order to reinforce team spirit.

  • Encourage people to interact outside the work environment, i.e., dinners or sports  events.
  • Put employees at ease by holding informal gatherings at your home.
  •  Assign a buddy for new employees to help them during orientation.
  • Avoid creating hierarchy by assigning perks such as more office space and free parking.

Ultimately, your employee motivation strategies can be built into a sound human resources plan. You can measure your success by evaluating and measuring what strategies have been successful.

Indicators include:

  • reduced turnover rates
  • increased guest satisfaction (less complaints and more complements)
  • improved guest/customerservice
  • improved employee satisfaction and improved morale
  • increased profits
  • reduction in cost.
