Fostering a Work Environment that Works

There are a lot of things we want from our job. Money, benefits and time off are all important goals, but perhaps one of the most sought after requirements in a job is that you like being there. So for managers who want to create a culture of employees who enjoy their job, here are a few tips.

Practice an attitude of transparency

If you mess up, admit it. If you are confused or overwhelmed, ask for help. Thank others for their honesty when they do the same. This way, fear won’t be the driving force that motivates people and collaboration will be the norm. The point of working in an office is to be a team. This requires regular interaction, honesty and the knowledge that you won’t be fired for imperfection.

Stop Venting

That being said, it’s important not to complain. Venting does not make you more productive, less stressed or more motivated. Instead it creates negativity and wastes time. A positive culture is vital, and if you or your coworkers spend your energy complaining, this is impossible.


I have a theory that productivity corresponds with laughter. Joking around with your coworkers increases energy and revitalizes motivation, making work feel less like work. Especially if you’re the manager, it’s good to goof off a bit, and lead the trend.

Work hard, but with Attitude

Everyone is different. And the best way to like your job is to be accepted for your unique self. As long as the work gets done and done well, any personality should feel welcome. This allows for a vibrant workplace that is comfortable and positive.


Increased Productivity in the Workplace with Good Relationships with Employees

Good Work Relationship

Maintaining a good relationship with the people you work with will result in increased productivity in the workplace and a stress-free environment.

You spend eight hours of your day at the office, and that is certainly a big chunk of time. Apart from working, you need to ensure that you are content at work. Among the things you may be able to do in order for you to increase productivity in the workplace, even while under stress, is to have a good social relationship with your co-workers.

Andy Core, a reputable business keynote speaker, believes that a good relationship between employees will result in maintained productivity in the workplace, thus, sending out various benefits to the company itself. It also helps in keeping stress away from the work area, because everyone gets along.

Here are some of the methods you can use to maintain a good relationship with the people with whom you spend more than 8 hours a day.

  1. Greet them. Saying “good morning” when you arrive will definitely make a difference. Some may not be having a pleasant morning and your greeting may cheer them up.
  2. Do good deeds. Choose a person for the week that you will be doing good things with, whether it is huge or small; they would surely appreciate the effort.
  3. Commend. Appreciation is best received when you least expect it. Congratulate them if they have accomplished something.

Maintaining a good relationship with the people you work with doesn’t come with a limit, so it should be given habitually. You will notice that productivity in the workplace will be much better if you maintain a good relationship with your co-workers.
