5 Ways To Improve Corporate Workplaces

Millions of Americans are transitioning from being allowed to work from home to working in an office. Everyone wants their environment to be as positive as possible. It’s possible to make an office a great place to work; it starts with the individual making choices to simplify their day and benefit co-workers. These five tips can transform a toxic workplace into an enjoyable one.  

Use Breaks Wisely 

Most workplaces give their employees a lunch break. People gather in areas to eat and chat. Many consider their lunch break the best part of their workday and it’s a good opportunity for employees to show up engaged and ready to make a difference. Most breaks are between 30 minutes and one hour. Instead of checking out and playing on their phones, employees can chat with others without succumbing to gossip or rumors. If everyone makes a point of brightening up a co-worker's day by telling a funny story or giving a compliment, then breaks can be an opportunity to get to know co-workers better instead of anxiety-inducing experiences.

Encourage Transparency 

Honesty is the best policy. Most corporations offer training to their employees. Ideally, there should be clear regulations about what to do about toxic behavior, such as bullying, inappropriate sexual advances or illegal activity. Employees should be able to report problems to sympathetic ears and with confidence that their complaints will be followed up on. Not giving people an outlet to voice their concerns opens the door to criminal activity and legal consequences. When companies encourage employees to come forth, then everyone benefits.  

Plan Fun Team Events 

People want to feel like they’re an integral part of an organization. Instead of sitting at a desk all day or completing mundane tasks, they relish an opportunity to have fun with their co-workers. Team events and volunteer causes are an opportunity to let off steam while doing good for an organization or community. For example, a company might participate in a local marathon run to help fund cancer research or an environmental cause. Employees can appreciate doing something outside of their typical routine and for the greater good. Team events also show that a corporation cares about its employees and wants to foster memorable experiences.  

Give People Power Over Their Pay 

Let’s face it, most people go to work for the money. Many corporations offer perks such as direct deposit or an online account where they can look at their paycheck and dispute time card discrepancies. Additional tools such as a paystub generator can give people even more power over their finances. People need pay stubs to apply for loans or apartment rentals. Occasionally they might need them for tax purposes. Giving employees access to an automatic paystub generator empowers them to make their own and print them out in a few clicks instead of going through a drawn-out administrative process. It’s a unique way to gain trust with employees and quickly resolve pay issues.  

Make Physical Health a Priority 

Exercise is an important part of health. Workplaces can be high-pressure and stressful, so employees need an outlet where they can let go of steam. Exercise is a great way to do that. More and more corporations are beginning to offer gym memberships or discounts to boutique studios. Employees can go there during their break or after they clock out for a little “me” time. Exercise can promote good health and boost mood. It’s amazing how many office grips and small problems can melt away after a good sweat session; some corporations are even going beyond gym memberships and offering yoga, meditation and reiki healing.  

Creating a career isn’t easy. Human relations are not black and white, and a degree of conflict is inevitable. People spend the majority of their day in offices, however, and they must get along with each other to get work done and have a good quality of life. These five tips are simple to implement and can make lasting change.
