Employee morale and productivity are directly linked. By measuring and improving this you can better impact the overall attitude and engagement of your teams.
A lack of purpose, toxic work environment, leadership issues or lack of clarity and transparency are just some of the causes of low employee morale. All of these can lead to underperforming employees, or even worse, high employee turnover.
Poor communications skills from lack of transparency, an inconsistent approach to communication, and communicating without clarity can all result in poor team morale.
Lack of recognition or incentives can make employees feel undervalued. People want to know that their excellent work is not going unnoticed, and many appreciate being rewarded for it whenever possible.
Employees who work remotely, or in a deskless role, away from their team– through choice or necessity– can feel disconnected from their company's people, priorities, and objectives.
Our mission is to build better places to work for everyone by improving employee communication and engagement. The Thrive employee app can be used in lots of creative ways for boosting employee morale and recognition.
Disengaged employees say things like, “we’re the last to know what’s going on in the company,” or “I never know what my manager needs from me.” The Thrive employee app helps you to bridge the gap between leaders, managers, departments, and teams by connecting everyone on one mobile channel and giving them instant, easy access to the information they need to carry out their roles effectively.
Engaged, informed, connected employees result in lower employee turnover in the long term. Meath County Council, a Local Authority in Ireland, have seen great success in connecting their 'indoor' and 'outdoor' employees with their secure, engaging mobile employee app. Read their story here.
Deskless, dispersed and remote workers can feel disconnected from their colleagues and your organisation. When trying to build employee engagement and improve employee satisfaction, giving colleagues a voice and a dedicated platform to ask questions and share their thoughts can have a positive impact on their employee experience.
Our suite of social features and user generated content allows employees to quickly jump into conversations, post comments, reply to colleagues and ‘mention’ each other in comments.
Employee recognition has been shown to improve morale, productivity, and retention, yet many organisations still suffer from a recognition deficit.
According to one survey from Harvard Business Review, 40% of employees say that they would put more energy into their work if they were recognised more frequently.
With the Thrive employee app you can provide a space for employees to align your company values to achievements, and empower employees to recognise each other, publish success stories and send virtual high-fives to colleagues.
The importance of team building cannot be overstated. Not only does it lead to collaboration, but it also aids in problem-solving among team members, fosters meaningful and open communication among peers which enhances productivity and boosts employee morale.
The Thrive employee app is an easy-to-use, accessible tool for arranging internal events and competitions. Offer RSVP reservations for events (with or without restricted spaces) and give the whole workforce access to competitions through our Acknowledgements feature.
Target all employees or employee groups to get detailed event and competition reports.

"We don’t need to travel to and from offices to access information or policies and share documents, these are all within the app for people to access when needed. We have noticed a great increase in activity from employees sharing information with each other, supporting their colleagues, and acknowledging and thanking them for their hard work. It’s great to see the app helping to lift spirits, especially during challenging times."

The app will also bridge any gaps between desk and non-desk-based staff by ensuring everyone receives and contributes to the same information at the same time."
