Employee Newsletter Morale Booster

Keeping morale high is one of those tricky things to stay on top of. The general mood of a team, just like an individual, has its own cycles and can be impacted by factors that often elude understanding. There are certainly things you can do to help keep your employees feeling appreciated and inspired, and often it’s the small things that make a difference: a card on their birthday, appropriate praise and encouragement, etc.

If there’s an easy, inexpensive way to keep morale up, it’s definitely worth considering. One such innovation that’s been making a difference in the workplace is an Employee Newsletter. While some employees may scoff at it, most likely they’ll still read it--so the opportunity is there for you to deliver the types of messages that really hit home.

There is no right way to create an Employee Newsletter, with plenty of room to be creative. You can come up with a nice layout and choose to include pictures and graphics and quotes.

Below are 5 article ideas that will help keep your employees feeling connected.

1. Company Goals – Some employees come in and go about their routine with little understanding of the big picture. It’s important for employees to know what the company is trying to achieve. An Employee Newsletter can help you explain company goals, why they are important, and where the employees fit in.

2. Special Achievements – Employee Newsletters can be used to provide employees with special recognition for their contributions.

3. Welcome New Employees–A warm welcome to a new employee benefits everyone. You can even provide a short bio of new employees and their role on the team.

4. Frequently Asked Questions/Concerns–If you find you are receiving the same questions, you can address them in the newsletter. You can also discuss concerns that have been raised and how they’re being addressed.

5. Engaging Article–This is your chance to connect with your employees. You can talk about recent company events, or relevant topics of interest. Talk to your staff about projects they’re working on, the types of volunteer work they do, or what they do outside of work for fun. Show that you pay attention to them and want them to enjoy their lives outside of work.
