Happiness At The Workplace
A happy workplace is a productive workplace, and all it takes is a few simple steps to make it happen. Here are a few of them
TRUST BUILDING EXERCISES
Among employee engagement activities, a stringent focus on trust building exercises goes a long way. Employ regular outing days/games days which focus on games and activities in which the participants, in this case, your employees are required to rely on each other. A team that trusts itself and each other will always be a more productive team than the rest and any HR leader knows how important that is.
BUILDING EMPLOYEE PRIDE
Encouraging employees to take pride in the work they do, the people they work with and eventually, the organization they are a part of, is an important component of building a happy workplace. This is all the more important in a highly competitive industry, where every achievement should be portrayed as a matter of pride.
ENCOURAGING WORK LIFE BALANCE
This has become the mainstay of the modern workforce. A fine balance between work and personal and social lives has now become the focus, even of the most ambitious and aspiring professional. HR leaders are increasingly turning to policies and practices that ensure a work life balance for the entire workforce.
OPEN WORKSPACES AND OPEN CULTURE
The new age workforce, being firm proponents of transparency, expect the same from their workspaces. Flat hierarchies, complemented by the absence of any closed door rooms and wide, open spaces with top notch technology infrastructure lend an air of modern professionalism and go a long way in complementing the workspace and, in turn, the morale of the employees.
STRUCTURED KRAs AND JOB RESPONSIBILITIES
Well structured KRAs and job responsibilities are the hallmarks of a well-functioning, error-free HR management process. As a result, employees are clear about their functions and jobs. This translates into well-synchronized workflows in the entire organization, and happy employees.
It has been seen that modern workforces places a high emphasis on their well-being and happiness, something reinforced by studies that show employee wellness being among the top three priorities in any CHRO’s agenda. Follow these tips to make it happen!
