Is your staff feeling the effects of today’s economy? Even if they are not showing the stress brought on by these tough times, it is safe to assume that the emotions and concerns are there. What can a company do to boost the morale of its workers yet have minimal or no cost to the company? Golden Pacific has found affordable and easy-to-implement solutions which are producing very positive results. A happy co-worker pays more attention to detail, is more productive and is less likely to crack under pressure.
This will be the first in a series of posts showcasing some of the ideas we have implemented here at Golden Pacific.
#1 – SLIPPERS
Implemented in December 2009
Cost to company: Less than $100
Yes, we gave our people an inexpensive pair of black slippers to keep at their work stations. Once they are at work, they are free to slip off their uncomfortable work shoes and slip into something fun and comfortable. If we have office visitors, they just slip back into their nice shoes and are ready for meetings, etc. It’s a simple idea that makes everyone feel cozy and special.
So get out there, get cozy, and get your “feet on”.
