Employee morale and motivation are key to success in running a 24/7 business. There is a higher proportion of unionized employees in 24/7 industries, and a history of failure to deal with the special issues of shiftwork can lead to longstanding mistrust and grievance. Many studies have shown that increases in job stress and low morale lead to higher rates of absenteeism and turnover as well as lower productivity. Maintaining a positive relationship with any workforce will provide benefits for both the individual shiftworker as well as the operation.
