The purpose of this report is to educate upper-level management and line managers on the importance of employee morale. It first discusses what morale is and its significance in the corporate structure. Then it addresses who is affected by low morale and how. It also explains the high costs related to low employee morale, the critical role managers play in morale, signs of deteriorating employee morale, and techniques for improving morale. In the concluding pages, a proposal is presented on how upper-level management within corporate America can help improve morale. Some of the solutions include transformational training for managers, employee empowerment, improved ties between reward and performance, and improvements on basic employee practices, all of which can be implemented using a 7-step morale-boosting program described in the recommendations section of this paper.

From the Paper:

"A great way to help upper-level management discover employee problems is through an employee satisfaction survey. A well-orchestrated employee survey can lead to high return rates and help uncover hidden many workplace problems. However in order to receive helpful information from these surveys they must: (1) establish clear goals and objectives, (2) ask the right questions the right way, (3) collect data the right way at the right time, and (4) ensure confidentiality. The most important thing is that management must take clear follow-up actions. After reviewing and collecting the data have a group meeting informing the employees on the findings of the survey, how management intents to go about addressing the issues, ask for feedback, and implement the necessary changes."
