Officevibe – Improve Employee Morale

Employees whose needs are not being met at the workplace are more likely to slack off or leave their companies altogether in search of greener pastures. In an effort to combat low workplace morale, forward-thinking companies are beginning to rely more frequently on solutions like Officevibe, a web-based platform that provides businesses with unique ways to engage employees and increase productivity.

Officevibe has found a way to “gamify” employee engagement. Encourage your employees to participate in the weekly “missions” posted on Officevibe’s platform to earn reward points. Examples of typical missions run the gamut from meeting new colleagues to using public transit or wearing company t-shirts outside the office. Those employees who’ve accumulated the most points are listed on an office-wide leaderboard. Employees can work together to game the system and rank higher on the leaderboard, which is one of the ways that Officevibe helps create tighter bonds among colleagues. Officevibe also includes an employee recognition component that you can use to give public shout outs to high-achieving employees who meet goals and accomplish important tasks ahead of schedule.

Officevibe says its platform helps decrease employee turnover and improve employee retention. The solution also integrates with Yammer to maximize synergy within offices that already use the enterprise social platform.

  • Reward employees for being productive in the office
