Importance of Morale in an organisation
1. Overall satisfaction:
The other name of morale is satisfaction, which relates to needs of the individual, his job, his colleagues, supervisors and so on. So a condition of high moral means overall satisfaction, peace, harmony and stability.
Morale increases productivity in two ways – directly through inducing more effort and indirectly, by removing some of the handicaps like employee grievance, absenteeism, turnover and the like.
Where morale is high, there is practically no problem of indiscipline.
4. Ease of management:
High morale also reduces the need for supervision. Motivated workers themselves take the initiative to work harder and better.
5. Better company image:
If morale can be maintained at a high level for a long period, it will create a good image in the public mind about the company. While employees themselves may publicize its policies, working conditions and so, on absence of disputers and general atmosphere of harmony produce a favourable impact on suppliers, customers and the neighboring community.
