Healthy work habits drive success. They increase job satisfaction and create stronger relationships among your team members. Good work habits can also improve your bottom line. Help get everyone on the same page with these tips and some employee giveaway ideas.
Start the day off right
Getting going in the morning is tough but having a routine can help. If your employees dislike getting up to an alarm clock, encourage them to use their phone to play music or nature sounds instead. A charging pad and phone stand will keep their phone close. Having a plan for the day helps reduce feelings of uncertainty. Give each team member a weekly planner with a pen so they can easily keep track of their schedule. A hot drink in an on-trend mug will give them a boost as they start their day.

Give tokens of thanks
Feeling appreciated goes a long way in terms of moral. And that means recognizing all of your employees. Thank employees for doing good work, even when it’s expected of them. It could be as simple as saying, “You handled that difficult customer very professionally” or “Thank you for responding to that inquiry so fast.” Hand out some tasty popcorn tins to enjoy over the weekend.
Form solid workplace habits
By helping your staff stay organized, encouraging them to have a positive attitude and keeping them engaged in their daily activities, your
