Sadly, today is my last day as an intern in the PayProMedia studio. I’ve enjoyed my time here learning from some phenomenal workers. Being 19 years old, I’ve already been employed at multiple businesses – seven total – that were mostly seasonal jobs, but all have offered a good insight into the workforce.
My question is what makes the best working environment for employees? The bottom line in my mind is that happy employees create good work. Good work creates more sales. More sales mean growth and satisfaction. So in this chain event, the trigger is a good working environment. But how do employers create that perfect environment?
Obviously there is no “one-size-fits-all” formula for a working environment, but the criteria is consistent for each place. These traits include trust, communication, team spirit, etc. What type of traits should management have to contribute to a good environment? Things such as approachability, responsibility, and the willingness to give appreciation and recognition.
If you aren’t happy at your place of employment could it be a result that your employer lacks one of these? What are your thoughts on the connection between happy workers and a successful company? Let us know your thoughts in the comments or on Facebook.
