There are many different factors that determine whether or not a business is successful. One is employee happiness. Happy staff members are likely to be more productive, with the logic being that they work for a company that looks out for their well-being and they feel compelled to give back. If you’re trying to think of ways to boost morale at work, consider trying one of the three DIY mural ideas below. Even something simple as the right decor can lead to a better work environment, and therefore happier employees.
1. Remind staff of the good times they’ve had over the years
No matter how happy employees are at their job, there are going to be times when your team feels rundown, stressed or frustrated. When a bad mood strikes, remind staff that the office can be fun, too, by hanging up a picture mural that features the last big company outing. Whether it was an outdoor BBQ or a holiday party, displaying a large photo (or several smaller-sized photos) of fun company activities in the lunch room or front lobby can be just the pick-me-up employees need.
2. Show the bigger picture
Bring back the past with old images of your business. Pictures that show how the company’s developed over the years can bring a sense of history to your building, and it can show employees how far the company has come thanks to their help. Overall, it helps employees feel like they’re a part of something larger.
3. Let an employee design a print
If you have some creative talents who work in the office, give them the chance to put their skills to work. You could hold a contest in which willing employees submit a sketch, and then have everyone else in the office vote for their favorite design. A fun competition is a great way to encourage bonding and you can turn the winning submission into a beautiful, one-of-a-kind mural for your team to enjoy.
