- Silent meetings
- Greatest absenteeism
- Late arrival of work
- Fault finding
- Dissatisfaction at work
- Lack of initiatives
What causes low morale at work?

How to fix poor morale amongst people?
Recognising and understanding the causes of low morale in people is the first-ever step to fix any issue. Here are the best 4 ways you can fix it.
Listen to your people:
Communication is a two-way lane that both sides of the track should be comfortable in sharing thoughts. Listen to your people expecting positive thoughts as well as negative thoughts about work.
Address everyone in the team:
People sometimes remain silent during normal calls and feel uncomfortable revealing themselves among a set of people. So, address each and everyone in the team and try spreading the positivity.
Recognise people and their work:
Focus on the work they do. A lack of recognition can contribute to low morale. Your people need to feel valued and appreciated every time.
Strong bonds between people:
Healthy communication will contribute to people's morale. Also, trust people and form a good valued relationship.
