Not only can it completely destroy everything you worked so hard to create, but it can lead to cranky behavior, low productivity, and office fights. It’s your job, however, to make sure that morale is up and your employees are happy, so now’s a great time to start figuring out how to change your office’s mojo. Check down below for some ideas.

What Does the Web Say?

Many people go to the Internet when they have complaints about a business and their employees. Much of the time, they will even go into detail about what their problem is. Google your own business and see what people have said about your company.

Often, your customers are the best source of information on your employees when they refuse to talk. Do people make mention of grumpy employees or slow turn-around in their reviews? Does anyone seem to feel like they have been treated unfairly lately? Take note and discuss the reviews at your next meeting.

How is Your Own Behavior Looking?

Are you allowing for that open communication that every office needs to survive? Your employees should be talking to you and their managers about any problems they might have instead of falling silent when you enter a room. Are you being a good example and staying positive even when you may not feel that way all of the time? Do you allow time every week for feedback sessions? Make sure you’re being a good boss before you look at your employees and their performance.
