Summer of sport leaves employees demotivated. The secret to boost them.
Many people will feel the struggle to make it through the long days of work in the summer. Especially when there are exciting sporting tournaments happening that draw minds away from work. Sodexo Benefits and Rewards Services has found that around one-in-five people report to feel less productive during the summer months; and more so when events like the Olympics or Euro Championships are occurring.
To tackle this, Sodexo’s research1 shows that offering short-term rewards and incentives can keep employees engaged, while offering some relief from daily routine. Office sweepstakes, sporting-themed days, team activates, longer lunches to enjoy the sunshine and cycle to work schemes are some examples of ideas to nip the dip in summer productivity in the bud.
