How To Be Happy At Work (read it on fastcompany.com)

Why Read It? Turn the job you have into the one you love.

There's an opportunity in your area!

  • Create the work that you want to do out of the duties that you are assigned: resulting in work that you find meaningful and worthwhile.
  • This idea of there being a right-sized peg for every hole, and it's just a matter of finding it is unrealistic.
  • How? Identify the realities of your job, then find ways to shape it into something better suited to your interests and talents.

Why Read It? Because there are qualities that almost all happy workplaces share.

  • Back off! Beware of micromanaging supervisors and authoritarian bosses who don't give workers much choice on the job. They tend to lower everyone's morale, well-being, and motivation to put in extra effort.
  • Keep it movin'. Employees who fill their morning routines, lunch breaks, or happy hours with physical activity tend to be more engaged and energetic on the job than those who stay glued to their chairs.
  • Improve the space between. Office setups that encourage face-to-face communication (like open-plan bull pen types) boost employee satisfaction. Can a few plants, a gym break, and a smiley boss really make or break employee enthusiasm?

"Happier workers stick around longer, bring more energy and enthusiasm to their tasks, and help maintain organizational morale."
