What is Morale?

Morale is defined as the satisfaction level of employees in relation to their workplace. It is how employees see their jobs, their attitudes to their work environment, and their honest cooperation toward the progress of the entire company. Morale also indicates the happiness level of employees within a company. It is also a condition in which long-term company goals are merged with individualized goals. Morale and productivity are directly proportional, that is, if morale is high, productivity is also high.

Morale & Productivity:

In the diagram on the next page,

Line A = low productivity with high morale.

Line B = high productivity with high morale.

Line C = high productivity with low morale.

According to line C, to is true that productivity can increase despite a low morale. This is done using stiff management principles using close supervision and strict discipline. This type of people management doesn't work in the long run and may suddenly collapse.

According to line A, morale is high but productivity is low due to weak management and planning.

A good manager should aim for a line B, where morale is high and productivity is also high. Line B represents the best management technique and works in the long run.
