How to Increase Staff Morale while Working Remotely?

by MUKUND K. SEO Analyst

Working remotely has been a topic of debate, as on one side many employers and employees have encouraged it, there is another lot that finds it extremely challenging. One of the toughest challenges faced by employers with remotely working employees is to keep the morale of the staff high so that they can get maximum productivity out of them.


This is mainly because as there is no physical company culture with remote working, it’s easy for the staff to get distracted or disengaged in their work, which can affect their productivity and in turn affects the growth of the organization. That is why one of the important goals of employees is to create a healthy work culture even with the employees working remotely and increase their morale to keep them engaged and dedicated to their work. A qualified employee engagement agency can be really helpful in such situations as they will help the employers to form the right strategies for keeping the stall morale high.


There are many ways in which the organization and employers can increase staff morale while working remotely. Some of these ways are listed below.

1.   Maintain a healthy and disciplined work culture

It may seem hard to keep the work culture alive in a remote setting, however, if you want to keep the employee morale high it is very important to incorporate the company values in every employee, irrespective of their location.

2. Conduct meetings and group discussions from time to time

When you are not working together in a physical environment, it becomes more important to focus on the interaction that will help in getting updates from everyone on their daily or weekly tasks. This can be achieved by conducting meetings and group discussions that will give the employees a chance to share their progress and their ideas. This can also prove to be a great opportunity for the employees to put forth any issues or problems that they might be facing in their project. 

3. Offer assistance with in-home office setup 

Many employees do not have the right equipment or tools to set up an office space at home. If you as an organization offer assistance to them and help them in setting up the home office space, it will do wonders in increasing their morale and they will work with a newly formed dedication.

4. Understand and appreciate the circumstances

Working from home can get especially hard for people with small children. In such cases, they may encounter some difficulties that may sometimes affect their work. Understanding and appreciating their circumstances and adjusting their role in the project will help them feel valued and encourage them to give their best despite the situation. 

5. Keep the social activities going

Even though you are working remotely, there is no need to stop the corporate social activities and events as they are a much-needed break from the routine and also a good chance for the employees to interact with each other. You can continue these activities online by setting games or fun tasks to make work more fun and interesting for the employees.   


All the above strategies, if followed correctly, may work wonders in increasing the morale of the employees that are working remotely. Employers need to pay attention to what their employees may want or expect to improve employee engagement and keep the organization growing. You can also take assistance from an experienced employee engagement agency to help implement these strategies in a better way.
