5 Quick Changes for a More Uplifting Work Environment - Finnegan Pierson - ContactCenterWorld.com Blog

5 Quick Changes for a More Uplifting Work Environment

The vibes in a work environment can make or break the job experience for all employees. A little positivity can go a long way. The work environment can impact retention, mood, productivity and satisfaction. A lot is riding on creating an uplifting workplace. As a manager, you may not be able to make large-scale changes to the building or office. However, here are some changes you can make today to create a positive environment for yourself and your employees. 

  1. Comfortability

While not all work environments can have comfy or calming décor due to safety, implementing comfortable and soothing pieces where you are able to can make a huge difference. An option for employees to have standing desks could help with pain associated with sitting at a desk all day. The workplace should be kept within a comfortable temperature range with noise controlled as best as possible. Limiting distractions and uncomfortable things in the work environment can improve efficiency. Work to provide the necessary equipment to create a safe, reliable, comfortable environment, such as a generator transfer switch.

  1. Break Spaces

If space allows, create a small outdoor area where employees can get some fresh air and sunshine on their breaks throughout the day. Sunshine releases serotonin in our bodies which enhances mood. Vitamin D from the sun’s rays also positively affects mental health, happiness and immune system function. Taking a break outside can improve brain function and concentration, yielding increased productivity afterward and even prompt creativity due to the change in scenery.

  1. Check-in

Employees who feel valued and appreciated are more productive and overall happier than employees who feel like they are just one of many and that their employers do not care about them as an individual. Make time to check in with each employee on a personal and professional level. Use this time to establish individual goals, talk about performance, encourage them to set new goals and ask questions about the individual and their family or personal life. Making a connection shows you care and value your employees. It can also make them feel special while at work. Be a good listener during this time so your employees know they can come to you with issues, concerns and ideas. An established feeling of support can raise job satisfaction and personal confidence.

  1. Train

Provide resources, training and educational materials for your employees. If you notice an employee struggling or not performing well, offer them extra training or help instead of cutting them down with negativity. When you get new employees, spend enough time during the onboarding process to ensure they are not overwhelmed. Help set your employees up for success by facilitating learning, growth and development. Some employees may be eager to learn more. Complement this drive by offering mentor or shadowing opportunities and access to a variety of additional learning options, including webinars and online courses.

  1. Communication

Strive for effective, open communication within the workplace. This is one small change that can have a tremendous effect on the work environment, employee satisfaction and overall productivity. Transparent communication makes employees feel in the know. Open lines of communication add to the employees feeling valued and heard. By encouraging two-way communication, you will be surprised by the ideas and input your employees can give you. Suggestions could be used to improve the workplace, the flow of work projects, and improve your product, service line, company, or workplace.

Your employees look to you for guidance and leadership. You can set the tone of the work environment. No one has a good day every day, but it is important to remember your employees see your reactions. If you dread going into work, they are going to sense that dread. You don’t need to be overly bubbly, but you should make the efforts to create a work environment that uplifts yourself and your employees. As a manager, work to practice effective communication, active listening, regular check-ins and establishing a well-developed onboarding and continual training protocol. Above all, remember that your employees are people and want to be valued and appreciated.
