A recent survey by Seamless notes that food can often be a strong motivator for employees, helping them to feel valued and appreciated by their employers. The study found that 60 percent of office workers felt more engaged when their employer provided more food in the office. This highlights the ability of small measures to make a big difference in the daily lives of staff members.
Employee reward programs can also have a large influence on employee satisfaction, even if rewards are not large or extravagant. Taking the time to recognize the contribution of workers is often all that is needed to boost productivity and motivation. When staff members feel appreciated they are more willing to work longer hours to accomplish team goals.

Bringing units together is often as simple as providing the right environment and challenging staff members to work together. Having common goals allows focuses work from various departments and allows companies to see a more comprehensive and cooperative culture.
