National Employee Motivation Day- 21st January 2015

February 27th, 2015

Give office morale the lift it needs this month with document scanning solutions.

There’s no time for January blues with National Employee Motivation Day fast approaching. When you think of employee motivation ideas and incentives to boost motivation in the workplace, the first things that come to mind are usually team building activities or gifts for staff but what if you could show those staff appreciation in a way which would last longer?

The 21st of January is National Employee Motivation Day. Ok, it is a bit of a mouthful but its message is clear; the focus in offices acrossinspirational-boss the UK will be staff motivation and boosting employee morale. During this time of year, when the days are short, mornings are dark and the weather is dismal at best, staff morale can be pretty low and when your employees are lacking motivation, you won’t get the best work out of them. So now is as good a time as any to take steps to ensure your staff are happy and producing their best work for your company.

As I’ve mentioned, popular staff morale boosters usually involve team building activities for adults in the office or presenting them with gifts to give them the recognition needed. These ideas are very caring and will certainly make staff appreciate the company they work for. However; they are not long term solutions. Once the exercise is over or they have opened the gift, they will go back to work and motivation will slowly dwindle again. So, you need a solution that will continue to remind the employees of how much they are appreciated and make every effort to ensure they have a comfortable working environment.

This is where document scanning services could be the answer. Take a look around at the space in which your staff work. Is it spacious and worker friendly or is it filled to the brim with filing cabinets and boxes full of documents? If it’s the latter then you need to take action now. When your workers are struggling to manoeuvre around clutter or spend most of their working day searching for important documents, it is little wonder they are struggling to find motivation.

So what do I need to do?

No one likes a cramped workspace so you need to empty those boxes, folders and filing cabinets full of documents to free up that extra space. Filing cabinets are cumbersome things so it’s not hard to see how removing them can prove an excellent space saver.

What can I do with them once they’ve been taken out of the office?

You can make the switch to digital document management quick and straightforward by hiring out a service to scan documents. Having your documents scanned will reduce the space taken up by the information that is too important to get rid of. It will also be available at the click of a button which will increase efficiency in the office, not to mention the costs you’ll be saving in the long term.
