Environment of Success
Environment of Success
We believe an effective work environment begins with a healthy atmosphere when everyone feels as though they are an important piece to the puzzle, as a part of a team working towards the same goal. Employees are motivated by an internal fear of not wanting to let other members of the team down. This keeps employees focused and self motivated, and in a lot of instances self policed.
The team environment itself needs to be a healthy environment where employees are able to make decisions, share ideas, communicate effectively, and have a sense of empowerment and pride in the functions which they perform. This is created by allowing employees to make mistakes without consequence, having an open door policy, and allowing employees to work independently without micro-management but with clear direction and focus.
When an employee understands the goal or task and has clear direction, when unanswered questions arise, an employee will feel empowered when making an executive decision based on the direction provided. Teams also need to be rewarded, with individual awards which recognize the hard work of an individual that sets a goal and standard for others and team awards for success.
No team can sustain losing and have a happy locker room, we all want to be apart of the winner. So it is essential that a 'winning tradition' and culture of winning is institute within the frame of the group. The attitude of success should be normality and will self motivate employees and leave no room for slackers or a negative vibe.
Finally employees need to feel secure in their position and in their lives to be at their most effective. Happy people are happy productive employees. Its essential that employees are cheered to enjoy their time off and be provided the resources to enjoy their life outside of the work place. People with great quality of life are smarter, sharper, work harder, and become greater asset to a team.
Our idea of the office has changed.
What comes to mind when you think of “the office?”
50 years ago, it likely would have brought to mind something like “Mad Men” — desks in neat rows, typewriters, and rooms built of rich mahogany and smelling of cigarette smoke. Twenty-five years ago, big boxy computers and fax machines ruled the day at most companies — if you weren’t lucky enough to work in the posh, luxurious offices made famous in any of the many movies about Wall Street. Fifteen years ago, most people saw the office as something more akin to the movie Office Space — seemingly endless rows of cubicles, office equipment that never works, and constant frustration.
But what about today? What do you think of when you think of “the office?” Modern Office
Out with the old and in with the new world of work.
Are you at the office? If so, thanks for visiting the site instead of working. We’ll make it worth your time, promise.
Look around you. What do you see? Aging desktops, or state-of-the-art laptops?
Someone standing over the printer, waiting for the meeting agenda to print, or people sharing the agenda between their tablets with the touch of a finger? When you look at your business, do you see the old world of work, or the new?
Or to put it simply: Does your company have information mobility or not?
