Happiness in work is something people strive for. If the people working for you aren’t happy, chances are you know about it. You might struggle with high staff turnover, feel there is a negative attitude in the office and struggle to meet deadlines.
Even if your staff are happy and love what they do, there will be things you can do differently to improve their working life even more. Open communication is essential; give your staff a platform for telling you how they feel, without the fear of you being angry or upset. Honesty is key if you are committed to running a better business.
Make sure your staff feel rewarded and appreciated at work. This could take many different forms, from incentives to training courses. It’s good for people to have something to work towards, so a monthly or quarterly party or trip could be a fun way to encourage productivity.
