Amongst 7+ billion people on earth, there are 7+ billion thoughts and mindsets. However, all of them have one common goal which is “to live happily”. Nobody wants to be sad or upset and no one wants to be suffered or get hurt.
Most of us now have spent more time at work than with our families and friends. Our home has become our office and vice versa. Our families and friends have become our neighbors and our co-workers have become our friends because of this situation. All of us surely want to be in a happy work condition.
Do you have a good work climate? How to identify this? Here are 8 signs telling you that you’re in an amazing work environment.
1. Praise is heard everywhere when someone or something turns out good.
Each member of the team is working hard to achieve the company’s objective. They have high moral and like to bring out the best in other people. They’re happy to see people grow or succeed.
Although they like to challenge to be the best or to be better within the organization, they definitely have no envy to see other people's achievements because they have a very positive attitude and they accept their own and others' capabilities.
When you surround yourself with this professional group you will hear or receive praise frequently no matter how big or small the accomplishments are. They will sincerely glorify each other.
2. Mistakes are commented on and corrected.
Many people don’t want to admit mistakes. Why? Because they’re afraid of judgment and blame that make them feel they are the worst. Some even decide to hide their mistakes to protect themselves from these which leads to a bigger problem and causes more damage than what it’s supposed to be.
In a great workplace, you’ve got nothing to fear to confess when there’s something that goes wrong. Your colleagues and managers will not make your mistakes public or pinpoint the fault to anyone. They instead try to find a solution, offer help, seek valuable lessons, and give the advice to prevent you from repeating them in the future.
3. Everyone is highly responsible.
The words “I don’t know” or “It’s not my mistake” are rarely heard. People will like to say “Let me check” or “What should we do to deal with this situation” and they’ll do their best to offer assistance and alternatives. They complete their job on schedule with accuracy and are fully responsible for what they’re doing.
4. “Thank you” and “Sorry” are heard very often.
Have you heard these words a lot? Or probably you like to say them personally? If so, you could imagine how nice the atmosphere is.
When people say these words even on a little thing you’re doing good or tiny thing they did wrong, it shows that they’re respectful to others, kind, and humble.
5. The company objective is in everyone's heart.
This is one of the main points that can bring a positive foundation when every employee knows and understands the objective of the business and works hard as a team together in one direction. They’ll put personal issues or feelings aside and strive forward to reach the goal. They’re aware of how important it is to focus on common growth and they’re very much grateful for the company that hired and offered them the opportunity. They aren’t just eager for pay or have too many demands for personal gain as long as they’ve got a suitable and fair wage.
6. Everyone feels important to the organization.
Each of us wants to feel admirable amid other people. Our self-esteem goes up and we dare to perform our daily tasks energetically when we know that our effort is valuable and appreciated. A pleasing workplace always brings people to this feeling because they care about people and train them well enough to know their roles and responsibilities.
7. Everyone is willing to listen, grow, and adapt to change.
There’s nothing perfect in this world. There are always obstacles and unexpected troubles that need to be handled. Those who are open-minded never miss to ask for opinions from their team and they carefully pay attention to what people comment or suggest.
In the event of changes, the members are ready to follow and transform.
Their devotion and commitment to the job tell that they are ready to grow in their career as well as create a good impact on the organization.
8. You feel connected, satisfied, and happy.
In the end, the simple way to know if you have a good work environment is when you feel completely enthusiastic and happy. You want to wake up early to prepare yourself for work and leave when you finish the task appropriately. You are comfortable discussing and raising any ideas with your colleague and manager wisely about work.
Sometimes you may keep thinking about your job when you are at home or on holiday but it’s not anxiety or worry. It’s the thought of care and love you have for your work and your colleagues.
At last, having a great work environment is not easy in this challenging world. Anyway, these can result from each of us. We congratulate those who are having these atmospheres and for those who are not in ones yet, we advise you to be the person to create them. We know that not all people would understand it and treat you back with modesty as what you did to them. However, we're sure that there are still some people with positive attitudes and behavior that will be able to do the same as you.
