In your experience, what has been the greatest cause of low morale in the workplace?


Was it low pay, lack of recognition or appreciation, horrible colleagues, a bad boss, or some other unusual reason? Please share your experience in handling low morale.

    Great answer and I agree, CJ. Corporations need to realize that they need to play to our strengths. Once we are required to do everything else besides, productivity goes down, not up. Poolman truly touched on something important.

    Hi Yoleen. I believe it is imperative to find a job/career that is a good fit for our unique personalities. That being said, I have experienced truly hellish employment. The time spent on those jobs was indeed demoralizing.

    deed demoralizing.

    I did say that and I can relate to what you have said here. Office politics is devastating to morale---no doubt about it! It is a shame that many companies are not at all cognizant of what it takes to boost morale and to keep it strong and steady.

    True. However, management can change morale. They would be wise to do so as this increases productivity and the bottom line.

    Cissy, I too have experienced that many times; it's enough to make a person want to tear their hair out. Incompetence, without any repercussions, drives me a little bit crazy.

    That's what I call major stress, Old Poolman. Knowing one can lose their livelihood at any given moment is definitely a morale killer. Strangely, I hadn't thought of that reason. Thanks for reminding me about what's at stake these days.
