This luncheon series will provide you with some easy tools and strategies to implement in your company to help increase (or restore morale) to help you navigate the "new normal."
According to a survey of 2,278 HR professionals by the Society for Human Resource Management, 65% of employers say maintaining employee morale is a problem during COVID-19. And, as if face masks, social distancing and bad take-out food isn't bad enough, according to psychologist Daniel Goleman, “one person with a poor work ethic can introduce a kind of social virus to an otherwise cohesive and well-functioning system.” Low employee happiness not only jeopardizes current projects, revenues and organizational branding, it may also lead to an exodus of top talent which may wreak even deeper damage on the long-term health of your organization.
