Pick your employees up and move them around; play checkers with them – give them a new space to call their own. Not a new idea! It’s one that has been around for ages and one I’d like to repeat. Want more engaged employees? Give them new cubicles – hold cubicle decoration contests – watch your scores soar.
Change doesn’t always meet resistance. How much do balloons cost? Do you feel the mood dip? Put up balloons on the ceilings of a floor and watch smiles emerge – just make sure you don’t do it immediately after the appraisals.
These are definitely not the solution to any long term problem but little things that could make coming to work a wee bit more exciting.
So go ahead – shake them up! Spread a little cheer. It will do wonders.
