As the Executive Director of a non-profit organization I am always looking for the best value when it comes to equipment and service. Often it is a struggle to find that one company that can give you both at a level our organization can afford. I am proud to say that for the past 4 years we have been very pleased with Yuma Office Equipment. They worked within our budget, pairing us with the best copying and fax equipment, along with a comprehensive maintenance agreement. Offering same day assistance if something goes wrong, and knowing that their technicians are right here in town has added to my belief that they offer the best value. We appreciate everything that Craig Crossland and his staff do for Hospice of Yuma and recommend Yuma Office Equipment to any business looking to add new copying and faxing equipment.

Surefire Ways to Snuff out Employee Morale

Posted Jul 10, 2018

As an employer or manager, it’s important to be aware of your actions and avoid behaviors that can have a negative impact on the morale of your subordinates, such as:

Pitting employees against each other – While pitting your employees against one another as part of an internal competition may seem like a healthy way to motivate your staff, this tactic can quickly turn counterproductive for all but the winner. Competitions such as this often result in resentment and divisiveness among coworkers.

Publically calling out employees – Employees make mistakes and fail to meet expectations from time to time. However, publicly admonishing them in these instances only serves to create an environment of anxiety and fear where your staff walks on eggshells. No employee wants to be made an example of and be embarrassed in front of their colleagues. 

Holding good performers back – High-performing employees can pose a conundrum for employers: their performance merits a promotion but they are so good at what they do it will be difficult to replace them. If you want to keep employees, you must allow for upward mobility. Never hold someone back in spite of their performance.

Taking measures to foster and promote employee morale is a cost-effective way to keep engagement up and turnover down.
