More often than not, we forget to incorporate internal workplace programs that enable and empower employees. And contrary to traditional beliefs, enabling and empowering your workforce is crucial to maintaining a thriving workplace.

In this blog, we’ll embark on a journey filled with unconventional and eccentric ways to supercharge your workforce and revolutionize your workplace dynamics!

  1. Invest In Personal Development

The most fundamental of the lot is investing in your workforce’s personal growth and development.

Support their passions by providing access to online or offline courses, and workshops. You can even take a step ahead and organize such workshops, sessions or conferences at your workplace if it’s beneficial to all. But don’t restrict yourself to just supporting your workforce’s existing passions. You can encourage them to explore new skills or hobbies, giving them an opportunity to enhance their overall persona as well as the real sense of belongingness to the company they’re working for. 

  1. The Empowerment Hour

Designate a regular time slot for an “empowerment hour” every week. 

During this hour, you can collate your team members and engage them in activities such as yoga sessions, breathing exercises, journaling or sharing moments of gratitude or struggle with one another! The idea is to ensure their well-being and also boost their personal growth by holistically investing in them and motivating them.

  1. Recognition With A Twist

Instead of the standard “employee of the month award”, how about you revamp your gratifications? 

In fact, there’s so much to explore in this area. You could offer personalized trophies, or turn it up a notch with self-indulgent gratifications like shopping or spa vouchers for the outstanding lot! You could even install an “appreciation” bell in your workplace which is rung every time there’s a success story, notifying everyone of the achievement and the employees who were a part of it! These thoughtful gestures make recognition more memorable and promote inclusivity. 

  1. Last Friday Night!

Shake off the mundane work days with “last Friday night” every last Friday of the month! 

Dedicate the last Friday of every month to your employees wherein you organize a game night promoting friendly competition among them, a spa session, or even a team dinner! This autonomy ensures your employees feel like they’re valued and looked after for all that they do for your company, hence creating a positive work environment. 

  1. Reverse Mentoring

Flip the ancient mentoring model on its head with reverse mentoring! 

What does it mean? Well, it means that you pair junior employees with senior leaders to exchange knowledge and perspectives because honestly, knowledge knows no bounds and can come from anyone. This initiative gives the junior and maybe even younger employees in certain cases, a platform to share their fresh ideas and lets the senior employees understand and adapt to the rapidly changing world. It’s a win-win situation for both parties that’s inclusive in nature and fosters personal and professional growth!

Empowering your workforce doesn’t have to follow a conventional path. In fact, by incorporating quirkiness into your empowerment programs, you can create a dynamic, fun and thriving work environment with elevated morale, unleashed creativity, and positive outlooks. 

So step outside the ordinary and witness your workforce soar to new heights!
