As you know, happy employees are productive employees. Happiness is a vital factor in running a successful company. By putting your employees’ happiness first, you are putting the success of your company first.
When your employees interact daily with end-customers, you want to ensure they are happy and portraying the brand appropriately.
When employees are comfortable doing their job, they will be more motivated to do their best because they enjoy their work and are not just doing it for the paycheck.
Let your staff know how much you appreciate them regardless of the size of their contribution to the business. A simple email or comment in the hall will be enough to let them know.
It will make them feel valuable and improve the happiness factor. A simple team building activity can also show your appreciation, such as a team lunch.
Encourage Employee Involvement
While you will always remain the ultimate decision-maker in your company, involving your employees in decisions that affect them will also make them happy, knowing that you care about what they want.
It’s also a bonus to bounce ideas off of them to get a new perspective on things. Set aside a day for team building to brainstorm ideas within the company.
Remove Communication Barriers
Communication is vital in any business, so it makes sense to ensure there are no barriers between higher management and all employees. When employees know that they can communicate freely with management, they will be a lot happier overall.
Poor communication is a recipe for reduced productivity and unhappy company culture. Communication exercises in the form of team building can also be a great way to work on communication between employees and management.
Being a manager does not automatically make you a leader. Being a leader takes certain behaviors, like setting an example for your employees and setting clear goals for the whole team.
Layout precisely what is expected from each person and what responsibilities they have.
It also means supporting your team through everything. A good leader encourages others to be leaders. That’s another good reason to organize leadership training from time to time.
Foster a Productive Atmosphere
Creating a space that is not only aesthetically pleasing but is also well-thought out from a productivity point of view will undoubtedly affect your employees’ happiness.
A cramped and cluttered work space will impact productivity levels. When employees are not productive, they don’t meet demands. This will eventually lead to unhappiness.
Add some indoor plants to your work space, ensure there is plenty of room and actively aim for a relaxed work atmosphere.
