Dr. Ron Bonnstetter from TTI talks about how to increase your happiness at work looking at the issue from both employer’s and employee’s perspective. Webinar provides practical advice how to feel happier in your workplace and as a result how to increase efficiency of your work.
Dr. Bonnstetter divided his lecture into 3 main parts:Motivation and Dedication, Daily Routine and Physical Environment. It is extremely important to have different people in your company to provide diversity of abilities and talents, this way performance will be the most efficient. Research shows that building sense of identity within group at work might also increase our efficiency. Sense of identity is one of the ways to keep employees engaged and devoted to what they do – we all appreciate recognition for what we do and connection to other members of the team. To create a positive workplace it is important however to keep in mind differences between older and younger employees when it comes to what motivates them and how to show them your recognition.
When we think about our daily routine at work it is crucial to realize what multitasking myth is about. Doing many tasks at the same time reduces our focus, makes us slower and leads to making more mistakes. There is a crucial need to focus on quality of what we do to perform adequately and to achieve that every employee needs to create a scheduleand what is even more important – stick to this schedule. This way all the tasks will be done in the right time and with enough concentration.
Among factors that companies should pay close attention to there is also EQ andflexibility that has to be provided. Research shows that companies that are flexible benefit from more efficient workers who are 3 times less likely to quit.
Last but not least, Dr. Bonnstetter mentiones physical environment in the workplace, which includes temperature, comfort, arrangement, sounds, colours, plants and lighting. However obvious these things might seem they are often overlooked while arranging the workplace. We shouldn’t undermine importance of physical exercise either – already a bit of physical movement during the day can significantly increase our efficiency.
