An Employee Morale Scale

Thu 26 May 2016 #leadership

The scale goes from low to high morale. My biggest realization of the past five years, related to morale, is how weak a tool high comp is for driving morale. It can make people very happy for a short time, but after that it doesn’t do much on its own–the steady state for high comp (alone) is no better than the ‘passively looking’ step of the scale.

  1. rage quit
  2. actively looking
  3. passively looking
  4. not looking
  5. like the work
  6. working efficiently
  7. like the boss
  8. like the coworkers
  9. appreciated
  10. learning
  11. doing the best work of my career
  12. respected internally
  13. world famous and loved by many
