If you’ve ever caught yourself grumbling or complaining about having to return to work after a fun-filled (or restful) weekend, then you know that being unhappy at the workplace really does take its toll. A happy employee might seem like a myth and a fun, productive workplace can seem like a pipedream, but know that both do exist.
In today’s blog, office and meeting space rental company 191 Works discusses why happy employees are more productive, and what can be done to boost happiness and productivity in the workplace.
Happy Employees Care More
Employees who are less worried about other inconsequential things can care and focus more about work-related concerns. They can channel their energy toward making the office a better place to be. Happiness is also linked to better health. Happy employees get sick less often and show up at work more energized and more enthusiastic about tackling the tasks at hand.
How to Make Employees Happy
Whether you’re in your own building or in an office space rental, there are ways to make your staff a happier bunch. You can start with these things:
Invest in Better Lighting
Something about bright spaces instantly lifts the mood of anyone who steps foot inside. Take advantage of this design and happiness hack by investing in better lighting all throughout the office space. You can also utilize natural light by way of daylighting so you can keep your employees energized while also keeping your lighting energy bills in check. Now that’s a win-win situation.
Value Output, Not Rules
Allowing your employees to work according to their preference boosts job satisfaction. Workers are less frazzled when they are allowed to have flexible working hours and if they are able to work according to their own pace.
