Employee morale can be defined as the employee’s outlook, optimism, self-concept and belief in themselves and their organization, its mission, goals, defined path, daily decisions and employee appreciation. Employee morale describes the overall outlook, attitude and satisfaction that employees feel at work. When employees are positive about their work environment and believe that they can meet their most important needs at work, employee morale is high. If employees are negative and unhappy about their workplace, and feel unappreciated, employee morale is low. One goal at the top of any organization’s list should be to ensure high employee morale, so say industry experts.
