There's nothing worse than being surrounded by Negative Nancys and Debbie Downers all day at work. Even if you wake up on cloud nine, a somber work environment can zap away any optimistic thoughts you had before you walked through those office doors.
The best part is that boosting employee engagement doesn't have to cost a fortune. From letting your employees use social media to providing snacks in the office, these solutions are so simple that you're probably banging your head against your keyboard, wondering why it took you so long to think of them.
