“Savvy companies maintain staff productivity and morale by embracing summer in the workplace,” says Brandi Britton of staffing firm OfficeTeam, which recently released survey results on what employees want most for summer engagement.
The ability to leave the office early on Friday afternoons — “summer Fridays” — is a popular perk for employees this year.
But showing appreciation with schedule flexibility just doesn’t work in all businesses and industries.
“For those in the hospitality, construction, recreation and outdoor industries, the summer is actually a very busy season, so these workers have no time to be distracted by the lure of lazy summer days,” according to the Daily Herald of Provo, Utah.
Many manufacturers, mom-and-pop shops and other small business owners must work nonstop through the summer months, too.
So what’s the best way to thank busy employees in the summer?
A dental clinic office manager tells the Daily Herald says she boosts employee morale with little treats throughout the season.
“It can be as simple as bringing my team lunch one day, or having a candy bar for an employee who is having a tough time. I like to do those little things as pick-me-ups,” she says.
