A happy and stress-free environment is often preferred at the workplace. As more stress lead to mental disturbances and result in mistakes or errors in the work. A healthy environment at the workplace encourages employees to arrive daily. Here are the few tips that can contribute to this:
Departmental goals: Clear vision of the department to be set and promote our organization goals. Every employee can be from a different field but you had to work together for the betterment of your department and organization. Every person has a different approach to the solution to each problem.
Appreciate your employees: If your employees do something commendable, praise them in public. Special gifts can be given according to the situation. Sometimes a little effort to appreciate your employees will boost the courage to do better. Similarly, scold the employee in case of a mistake. Do not encourage them too much as it will make them overconfident. This in turn will affect the efficiency of the employees.
Know your employees: Regularly interact with your employees. Try to remember everyone by their name. They will feel friendly with you and discuss all the issues and the problems that they are facing during their work schedule. Get a regular health check-up of your employees and in case of any critical situation. Embrace them by telling them their importance to our organization. Give them a rest leave and help them financially.
Don’t force the work: Sometimes leaving too much work at a desk will leave you struggling. Analyze your potential and try to do only that much work that is within your limit. Do not compromise your lunch hours and any other activity that is important for you.
Organize the events: Regular routines sometimes can be boring. Make a schedule for the fun day activity. Invite all the family members if possible. Organize the activities in which everyone can freely participate. Interact regularly with your staff and know about their well-being. Involve everyone in the physical exercises to keep their body moving and mind relaxing.
Feedback: Set a complaint or a feedback box in which employees can submit their notes. Welcome every note but in case of anything suspicious enquire thoroughly. Often the cases of harassment and sexual abuse are encountered. Take these cases seriously. The feedback can be good or bad. Convert the bad into a good and good into a better.
Respect: Treat everyone with respect whether it be the servant or the office staff. Do not discriminate based on the position of the work that the person is doing. Try to listen to everyone’s problem and help them by finding a suitable and ideal solution which will be beneficial to both.
Friendly tour: Plan an outing and take your employees out on the picnic. This will help in developing the relationship on the personal front. You will know the employee’s likes and dislikes. As the office environment and the outing environment is different.
Communication: Clear lines of communication to be set based on employees. Giving preference to employees should be a big No. Give your employees a chance to speak their minds. This will give them a chance to think on the various paths. Deserving candidates should be promoted and the undeserved candidate should be given a chance. If the people are not incompetent according to the requirements let them leave the office with respect.
Having a safe, sound, and happy workplace helps in improving the mood, and in increasing the productivity and creativity of the employees. So, try to keep up the good vibes!!
