Sometimes a big project takes time and you need to build team morale. Sometimes it's as dumb as buying pizza when folks are working late. Sometimes it's Root Beer... yup.. Root beer. About 4 p.m. when the brain has totally fried, we take a short break for a sampling of root beer. But not just any root beer. It's root beer ordered over the Internet. [Is there any other kind of ordering if you think about it?] This year I'm ordering once again the 24pack of Root beer from Pop the Soda Shop.
Projects can be long and nasty and sometimes you just have to set small goal or reward. Sometimes it's as stupid as a favorite food. Sometimes it's as stupid as a quick day break. Sometimes it's an “attaboy” for those employees giving it their all.
Rewards...even small ones... even as dumb as root beer shouldn't be overlooked as “goal rewards” in projects.
So what are your best resources for Project Morale?
