Ways To Improve Morale

How do you increase morale when budgets are so tight?

The key is constant, frequent, and candid communication with employees. They deserve to know what’s going on and what you’re doing about this frightening economy.

An excellent summation (including, thankfully, the call for transparency and communication) is found in this Wall Street Journal post about a case study at a company in Boston – Greenough Communications.
