After big meetings or events, it’s natural to focus on the parts that could have gone a little better, but the moments that went well should also be considered. Increase employee morale by providing consistent feedback. Praise their efforts, challenge their weaknesses, and give them a platform to detail factors that would increase their productivity the next time around.
If your employees are constantly adjusting their seats and correcting their posture, their brains are most likely disengaged too. Forty-plus hours a week in painful seats can affect our brains now, and our bodies now and later, so invest in your company and the future of your staff. First, ask your staff what they would prefer. Blindly test the comfort of a few chairs and pick the one, or two, that support the majority. Never sacrifice the comfort of your employees for the aesthetic of your office.
When we go to the gym, we wear clothes that let our bodies stretch and move, and work should be no different. Business Casual is getting even more casual, and for good reason. Research shows that clients are more comfortable around casually dressed employees, and creativity is strongest when employees feel they can ask for forgiveness rather than permission. While maintaining professionalism for your clients and staff, allow your staff to explore and let their clothing reflect who they are.
