Are you hoping to create a safe work environment for your employees? Considering how long we spend working, where we work plays an undeniably large role in our well-being; it can influence whether or not we arrived motivated and enthusiastic or if we view the day as a countdown to quitting time.
A hostile work environment can be defined as one where employees do not feel at ease, where there is a culture that lacks communication, and transparency, thus making it difficult to do one’s job. Hostile work environments are likely to feature some level of bullying, discrimination, and intimidation.
To create a safe working environment, try these few things:
Get your team to show appreciation for each other
Keep all discussions open and transparent
Comprehensive training and onboarding
Understand one another’s ways of working
Celebrate team wins
Spend time together not working
Reflect on the week together
Trust your team
Set boundaries and expectations together
Use anonymity where appropriate
A team that celebrates together, stays together.
You will discover that most successes you have in your work are not down to one person, but a whole team.
