We All Deserve a Positive Work Environment

As a manager, you have a plethora of responsibilities. You have to be available in case of emergency, navigate company politics and keep an eye on the financial bottom line. But most importantly, you have to ensure the wellbeing of your staff. To secure an effective, happy, profitable and engaged workforce, a manager must maintain positive and open relationships with employees – something that is often easier said than done.

What is a Positive Work Environment?

Psychologists have different theories about what makes people happy in the workplace. People are complex, and tactics that work for one group might fail with another. Some things, however, seem universal. For all workplaces, it’s important that employees feel like somebody is listening to their needs. Feeling heard makes us feel important, which is beneficial in the workplace.
In a two-person partnership, whether it be a marriage or a doubles team in tennis, you can establish a responsive listening-relationship with meaningful conversation. However, if you’re managing a team and have to process an input from dozens, even thousands of people, it’s much harder to make your team feel as though you’re listening to them. That’s why you need to know how to engage employees.

A Good Work Environment is Good for Business

We all want to work in places where there’s a positive work environment. If an employee feels as though they’re not being listened to, there’s every chance they’ll up and leave for a company where they feel their voice is being heard.
You’ll be amazed at the impact of employee engagement on business performance. You need to keep best and brightest at your business, so you need to take steps to make sure you’re listening and responding to employees.
