Focus on your employee engagement campaign. Set the example. Hold your managers to a high uncompeomising standard. Listen to employees (those that do the work have the answers). Follow up!!
Choose more qualified people for advanced positions instead of promoting from within.

Invest in the individual contributors. They do more than most managers and do not get paid what they deserve. Work to win business and keep morale high. Layoffs and lack of work brings morale down (although haven't seen much recently).

We are grossly understaffed with no hope to hire anyone else. We need people in all areas so that we can better support, development, operations, testers and most importantly the customer. The customer has to also understand that even if they don't want to bring down the system they don't have a 24/7 system, we should be pitching to them instant migration. This would allow us to have proper amount of time to bring the systems back up.

Keep chasing after all the contracts. The employee experience pool is huge and they can tap the experience of those specialties.
