We did it! The weekend is here!
Have you ever wished that your place of work had a more positive atmosphere? Well, research shows that a more positive work environment can help improve employee’s health and productivity, as well as the company’s bottom line.
Michelle Burke, in her piece for the Huffington Post, writes about the effect that spreading kindness can have at work: “when leadership is focused on building a kinder, encouraging and engaged environment, it increases positive emotions and better health. People’s relationships improve fostering more collaboration and team spirit. In turn, this safeguards against stressful situations and negative experiences. It also helps to improve employee resiliency to deal with challenges while boosting their well-being. When organizations develop positive, kind cultures they achieve significantly higher levels of organizational effectiveness.”
What will you do next week at work to help promote a positive atmosphere?
