WORK SOMEWHERE lovely and AWESOME!!
In order to have employees love their workplace, many corporate giants are focusing on the area of humor at the workplace as they have recognized the significance of the productivity of a relaxed and joyful mind. The productivity can be increased when an employee is Happy to Work and Not Ready to Work.
Be at ease while you do your work:
Many leading companies from India and abroad as well that have accepted and introduced the concept of “Be at ease and love your work”. They have to accept it because the fast and vast expanding horizons of products and services bring tremendous work pressure on the working people. The people badly need a relaxed mindset with a happy-to work- feel the atmosphere. You will be pleased to know that companies like to Google India, RMSI, Marriott Hotels, American Express India, Twitter, Godrej Consumer Products, Lifestyle International, Forbes Marshall, have dug deep in this area and have brought in the changes needed to give their employees a better work environment. Let me explain it in some lighter way:
An artist, a psychologist, and a corporate manager are facing a firing squad. They are each allowed one last request. The artist says, “I’d love to have one last look at an impressionist painting.” The psychologist asks to give a brief talk about coping with stress. The corporate manager then jumps up and says;
“Shoot me first! I can’t take another talk on stress management!”
KRA (Key Result Areas) for the workplace:
Let us have a look at the KRA (Key Result Areas) where you can bring in the needed change and make an organization of fun-loving people rather than a complex, autonomous, and boring entity running in some direction without soul and inputs.
1. Communication at your workplace:
“I was not aware of it.” Or “I was not intimated about it.” are the most common excuses that an executive has to face now and then by his subordinates. And undoubtedly, the response to it usually results in a hot discussion, instructions, formal notices, etc. But it is something like giving the treatment of symptoms instead of curing the disease of the root. A preferable practice would be to setting up proper communication channels and smoothening the flow of communication.
2. The courteous environment at the office:
It is most usually found that people develop a tendency somehow to approach someone for some work impromptu. They even do not take care that the fellow guy might be busy doing some other job. The end result is obvious- acceptance without involvement. On the other hand, many of us have not learned the art of saying NO when you wish to No. Very tragicomic situations arise widening the distances between superior-subordinates or two subordinates.
3. Freedom and equity for every designation:
Everyone loves to entertain Freedom and equity but few dare to part it with others. It is equally important to value the freedom of expression in an organization as you expect others to value your own. Suppose, if your junior turns up to you, no matter how small the suggestion or idea it is, as a senior you need to appreciate it. If you bring in your status or superiority, you are sure to lose two important things from your subordinates- Loyalty & Invaluable suggestions.
4. Ethical standards and transparency throughout the office:
Don’t rewards only when there is something New To Offer by your subordinate but always cherish your appreciation with reward when something Good from your subordinate. It would 100% give them the feeling of something their own for the organization. Simultaneously, always maintain transparency in every layer of your organization.
5. Team Building:
People will love your work and accept you as a leader if you can spare your time in hearing their voices with different frequencies. Yes, you need a tactful mind that paves the path of harmony easily without any dislike and disrespect. Let us conclude with an interesting incident.
6. Love your workplace just like you love your friend:
A woman was promoted to a managerial position, giving her position superior to that of former members of her team. Knowing that this would create conflict with team members, she called a meeting to deal with the transition. She said, “Don’t think of me as your boss. Just think of me as a friend—a friend who’s always right!”
Love your work whether it is your job or your business. This would definitely result in positiveness as well as you will achieve better results on the same projects.
