Take care of your physical well-being and create a positive work environment. Indeed, certain factors are essential to feeling good about your company and your job: flexible working hours, a good working environment and good management.
Salary is important, but it shouldn't be the only criterion. A study has shown that if workers feel comfortable and happy, their productivity can increase by 80% and the risk of workplace accidents can be reduced by 300%. So it's vital to create a work environment conducive to well-being.
Don't feel guilty if you're not fully happy at work. Happiness is not only within us, but also depends on our environment and our professional situation. Developing resilience in the face of adversity can help us find a greater state of happiness.
Keys to a better working environment
Improving the ergonomics of workspaces is essential. Spending long hours in front of a computer can be detrimental to our physical and mental health. It's therefore important to use the right furniture to feel comfortable and avoid health problems. By improving our comfort at work, we can increase our productivity and well-being.
Offering flexible working hours is beneficial for both workers and the company. Flexible working hours make it easier to reconcile work and personal life, contributing to a better balance. What's more, telecommuting and face-to-face working combined can be a win-win solution for attracting and retaining talent.
Encouraging collaboration and social interaction is essential. By creating flexible workspaces where teams can relax and exchange ideas, we foster creativity and professional fulfillment. Internal promotion, ongoing training and digitization are also important decisions in improving the working environment.
Attitudes to avoid
Don't dwell on an unfair situation. If something is not right in your company, it's important to speak up and make your voice heard. Complaining helps to make a problem visible and to find solutions.
If your job doesn't motivate you at all, consider a change of direction. Work is first and foremost a means of subsistence, but it can and should also be a source of personal fulfillment. If you're not at all satisfied with your current job, it may be time to switch to something you're more passionate about.
Don't forget to seek well-being outside work. Find fulfillment in other areas of your life, such as your passions, your social life or your involvement with associations. Finding a balance between your professional and personal life is essential to happiness.
We can improve our well-being at work by taking care of our environment and ourselves. By adopting positive attitudes and seeking a balance between professional and personal life, we can find happiness at work.
