Olympic Games 'boosted worker morale'

The morale of British workers was boosted significantly by the London Olympic Games, according to a new report which suggests that the expected disruption to employees' everyday routines was minimal.

A poll carried out by ILM found that two thirds of UK businesses say the Olympics were less disruptive than expected, while almost half reported no impact on their organisation and 79 per cent of managers say that their jobs were not affected.

Furthermore, 48 per cent of managers claimed that the Olympics resulted in higher morale in the office, while four in ten allowed staff to watch the major sporting event in the office.

As a result, 37 per cent of managers reported being more productive and two-thirds said that their workplace bonded due to the shared experience.

Commenting on the report, Charles Elvin, chief executive of ILM, said it was good to see that many organisations also felt some benefits from the Olympics.

"It is encouraging to find that businesses took the opportunity to trial flexible working practices and those that did found their people were productive and motivated," he added.
