What is Morale?
‘Morale’ is the quality of a group to maintain their positive beliefs with confidence, enthusiasm and discipline even in face of hardships. It can be looked at, as a judgement of the willpower of a group of individuals while performing a task or undertaking a project.
Famous sociologist Alexander H. Leighton had quipped that morale is the capacity of a group of people to pull off a common task or purpose persistently and consistently.
Morale is generally assessed as a collective factor in a group rather than on an individual level. Hence, employee morale is an important factor for a HR as it is proven to have a direct effect on their productivity.
