Yes, your employees are at your office to work, and not to be pampered. But that does not mean that you could just leave them to their own devices as far as comfort is concerned. As their manager and superior, it is important that you also provide them with their needs so that they could perform their tasks better.
Making your employees content and happy does not always have to be complicated and costly. There are many ways you could do to make your workforce feel appreciated and here are three of them.
Maintain an Ideal Workplace
This may sound like a stretch, but a clean and functional bathroom is something that your employees will appreciate. Installing appealing yet durable decorative wall panels in the bathroom and shower room would be something they would be thankful about. A clean bathroom could help them relieve themselves better and help them concentrate back to their work. Also, good lighting in the office is important. Poor lighting strains the eyes. Letting natural light is ideal in every workplace.
Treat Them to a Meal
You may not realise it, but for some employees sharing a meal with their superiors is a big deal. Some employees tend to skip their meals because of piled-up work or because of an upcoming deadline. As an incentive for their hard work, you can assign some days where you could spend a meal with them. This may sound costly, but this incentive could improve their performance.
Give them a room to grow
Your office should not feel like prisons where they are all just required to work. Free them from such constraints by encouraging creating interest-based groups. That way, your employees may have room to pursue their passions in their free time.
Improving your employee’s performance doesn’t have to be a major investment, especially for recently founded companies. Making small tweaks to what is already available could be key to improving the workplace.
