Elevating Remote Employee Morale: Effective Strategies and Tips

Discover practical strategies and actionable tips to keep your remote team engaged, motivated, and connected for enhanced productivity and well-being.

Employee Engagement

Are you an HR professional who wants to keep your remote employees engaged and motivated?

Over the last few years remote working has taken the workplace by storm.

The research shows that remote workers are overall more productive but without prioritizing key strategies it can lead to lower engagement and morale over all.

So, how do you really boost the morale of your remote workers? Here are several virtual morale boosters that you can explore to help maintain the well-being of your remote staff.

Maintain Good Communication

It is easy to maintain good communication with on-site staff whom you meet with daily. However, it may not be as easy for remote workers. You need to adjust your communication methods to ensure the same level of exchange is maintained for your remote workers.

  • Set Expectations – Make your expectations clear so remote workers can work towards the targeted end goal. Remote workers can’t just pop into your office with a question so being clear from the start ensures they understand their role and tasks.
  • Check-In Regularly – Do not leave your remote workers feeling unappreciated. Always check in with them regularly to find out how they are doing personally and whether they have concerns over the tasks that have been assigned.
  • Get on a Call – Sometimes, the lack of verbal communication can cause a misunderstanding. Most of us communicate via texts or emails nowadays. However, if you feel that the remote worker is having concerns, always initiate a call. Some things are better explained verbally as compared to just words on a screen.
  • Prioritize Wellness – Working remotely does have its perks, but not everyone can adapt to this work arrangement as easily. Some people may already be accustomed to social interaction which can affect their well-being when in an alternative virtual work structure. Prioritize an environment of social support, virtual face time and wellness resources for employees to easily access.

Host Team-Building Activities

Communication, collaboration, and work processes are all important aspects of a successful team. However, maintaining good morale among your employees is equally important.

Hosting team-building activities will help to improve connections and communication between employees, improve teamwork, and build leadership skills plus it brings fun into the workplace. 

Trust and Empower Your Employees

As you move forward with a remote working arrangement, you may feel that you need to stay on top of what your workers are doing all day long during work hours. This is called micromanaging. Try to conquer this impulse and instead, put your full trust in your employees. Show that you have complete trust that your employees can fulfill their duties regardless of where they are working from. Set clear expectations and they will feel more motivated to deliver results that meet your expectations, knowing that you have faith in their capabilities.
