Need a few tips to keep your employees happier over the next few months? We have gathered together a few simple tips that are designed to keepÂ employees productive and happy at the work place. Here are aÂ few tips to get you started:
Give yourself and your employees permission to be happy. Make employees feel like they donâtÂ have to act serious or try to be âprofessional” 100% of the time while at work. It doesnât haveÂ to be one or the other; you can be professional and happy at the same time.
Be appreciative and forgiving. Congratulate others for a job well done. When a person makesÂ a mistake, be understanding. You canât change the past, but you can shape the future by howÂ you choose to respond. Letting go of any anger, frustration or resentment can make yourÂ office a much happier place to work.
Have contests and fun activities that everyone can participate in. Company outings, picnics andÂ casual days keeps everyone cheerful and working together as a team.
Working long hours does not always equate to increased production. Set attainable goals. KeepÂ a reasonable work schedule. People who bring their work home with them or who work allÂ hours of the day are less likely to be happy with their job. Work is work. When the work day isÂ over, go home. Relax. Spend time with family and enjoy your evening.
Place value in employee health and offer comprehensive health insurance benefits. EncourageÂ employees to leave their desks during the lunch hour and enjoy the nice weather, goÂ outside for a walk, to ride their bike or to simply sit down and chat with their co-workers. OfferÂ healthy food options instead of sugar-filled vending machines. You can help your employeesÂ have a healthier lifestyle by setting an example.
Purchase a few plants for your office and find a few sources of natural light. Plants areÂ great for producing oxygen as well as filtering the air we breathe. Natural light can have manyÂ benefits including helping to brighten your mood, boosting your immunity and more.Â When you and your employees are happy at the office, you can get a surprising amount of work done; Â you may find that this strategy is so workable that your company grows faster.
