Morale amid Covid-19

I am curious about how everyone is doing in keeping morale high during Covid-19. It has been roughly a year since most places went to almost all remote. In my case I try hard to keep my team engaged and have an occasional good laugh.... 

How about you?

What is your manager doing to help keep morale high? or worse not help!!!

If you are a manager, what are you doing to help keep morale high during Covid-19?

  • It can be hard to keep up morale, but I also think as professionals, we should be a bit driven as well to achieve.  Our company celebrated a good year even with covid.   We in IT not only contributed to programs which drove business value, but did it all while coming $3mil under budget.   That translate in to efficiencies which are noticed by management which lead to more opportunities for everyone.  The reality is we all miss the human connection, but where I am, our team morale is higher now than it was in 2019.   We do have virtual programs we align with, more 1:1 meetings, and weekly non-business related catch up meetings.    Those help with the human connections.   Over all, I feel we are doing a good job being professional, accomplishing our goals and doing it in a climate of change like we have never seen.  I hope similar success to others.   A positive outcomes starts with a positive you.
