I think, your employees have problem with their salary, increments, why dont you keep one session this month in which also involve your Directors, keep this seesion on Company Orientation, Share companies goal, upcoming projects and achievements with your employees, talk about the growth of every individual in the company. Let them feel that they are at right place and be motivated for the work, this might lighten up their minds, keep some softskill training on Assertive thinking, stress managermnt.

Good prizes usually work. Also, there must be at least a few people who are enthusiastic. Try to get them along or try and have some representatives from the teams.
It will give you a helping hand; and since they are involved they would take an extra effort to get their team mates along.
Have you tried organizing something like antakshari, quiz, wherein teams from all the projects/ departments need to get involved? In case you have not, you can think about it.
Are there any specific leaders who are quite popular? Whom people respect a lot? would it be possible to get them involved in the activities?
One more thought.....by any chance your team is looking forward to any technical/softskills trainings rather than the fun quotient?
Will thet portray the management as their well wisher? Think over it.

Hey Rohit,
I understand ur problem.First make your Employees feel comfortable.Try to conduct some games inside the office spend 1 or 2 hours.You can split your Employees in team wise and then ask suugestions for events.
Thanks and Regards,

Badlooser Sir and some our other respected members have already given you valuable views....

In addition, you say its a firm of 70 employees....so its easy for you to communicate to them.As you are the HR try to mingle freely with your employees and find out whats really bothering them.The best,simple,easy way is to chat with them.For instance, when you find a group of employees chatting during coffee-breaks etc..join them have a casual chat about their work,current status,future plans,family etc...(trust me they will be really engaged in the chat with you since you are an HR ...and might even say out exactly whats bothering them)..this way you'll have an idea..

Ans so, you might come to knw whats the reason behind this...is it monetary,mangement,or personal, or the manager bothering them..or is the HR itself...

(just a small opinion pls dont mistake it ...as far as possible never ever arrange any event on a Sunday....even be it a strength of 5000 only a few would show up cos this is the day they concentrate on their personal work)

Read all responses and pick up suitable answer. You either misunderstood the employees priority and finding solutions from us which may or may not be approprite.
Conduct employee opinion survey and do some analysis and present to management this is most practicle method.

I understand your concern and predicament.As an hr man,you should have,by now,understood why employees behave like that showing lukewarm response.You are not sure but quote salary as reason.It may not be the case.when you concvince them that everything is for thier personal and career growth,they will respond.You may get answer the moment you answer whether you are effective and efficient in your endeavour.If you dont mistake,your posting has lot of mistakes .If you show you are the one they are looking for,well,the may respond.Even then if they dont respond, they are the loosers and not you.Further, why management dont take seriously with emoloyees?
