A HAPPY WORK PLACE

When work­ers find them­selves smil­ing most of the time whenever they are work­ing, it can be as­sumed that they are work­ing in a very healthy and happy en­vi­ron­ment. This doesn’t mean that they are less pro­duc­tive and work­loads are ab­sent. In­stead, be­cause of many pos­i­tive fac­tors, though there is lot of work to do, they do not re­ally feel the pres­sure and ex­haus­tion.

This could be pos­si­ble through many ways. To men­tion, we could say that the work­place is a HAPPY WORK­PLACE when they work­ers are mo­ti­vated and em­pow­ered. This is not some­thing dif­fi­cult to do. But of course, they must feel the sin­cer­ity of the leader who mo­ti­vates and em­pow­ers the, Whenever work­ers feel that they are ac­knowl­edged for a good job and ap­pre­ci­ated for even sim­ple ac­com­plish­ments, their morale shall be boosted. Em­pow­er­ing them es­pe­cially those who have the po­ten­tial to be lead­ers would also spread a happy at­mos­phere in the work­place. This is ev­i­dent when the leader is demo­cratic and trans­for­ma­tional. He as­sures that his work­ers are in­volved in plan­ning. He also trusts his co-work­ers to ac­com­plish pro­grams and projects with him as a fa­cil­i­ta­tor be­hind. In this man­ner, work­ers would be­lieve that they can be­cause the leader him­self trusts then that they can.

A happy work­place also has a fa­mil­ial cul­ture. A work­place need not look like a stiff and se­ri­ous place. Thus, with­out sac­ri­fic­ing their pro­duc­tive­ness, work­ers could bond to­gether and have fun by pro­vid­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties for ex­tra- cur­ric­u­lar ac­tiv­i­ties or team build­ing ses­sion to fur­ther strengthen their re­la­tion­ship. This cre­ates a happy work­place as they laugh and love to­gether as fam­ily.

Of course, none of us wants to feel that our work en­vi­ron­ment is filled with neg­a­tiv­ity. We all want to “feel at home” so we could see our­selves en­joy­ing and grow­ing to­gether. Lastly, don’t for­get to al­ways spread good vibes by mak­ing things light. If you have unity, for sure, no mat­ter how tire­some the work­loads are, laugh­ter surely is the best medicine that shall sus­tain the happy work­place.
