Enhancing the work atmosphere, how can you do this? You can start by having fun.

.

The workday can be as fun and as exciting as your property wants to make it.

.

Many successful hospitality property owners that I’ve talked to over the years have one thing in common, they enjoy what they do. Not that every day is a barrel of laughs, but there is enough happiness generated over time to see them through the rough times.

.

Here are some examples of enhancing the work atmosphere:

  • Encourage your employees to take a few minutes every day to get out and walk around.

It has been proven that just a few minutes can energize the body and boost creativity.

.

  • Let your employees make their work environment a place they enjoy being.

For example, housekeepers keeping notes of thanks or pictures of their family or vacation in their work area.

Any memento from a pleasant experience that might make them smile when they look at it.

.

  • Laugh

Yes, professionalism is very important that doesn’t mean you can’t smile or joke. A smile or a laugh can be contagious and when you’re happy, endorphins are released, which are natural pain and stress relievers.

.

  • Compliment your co-workers every day

You’ll actually feel just as good giving the compliment as you do receive it. 

.

  • Check-in with your colleagues

Just to say “hi” or drop a note to see how they’re doing can brighten up everyone’s day significantly.

.

  • Be appreciative

If someone is always willing to go the extra step, let them know how meaningful that is, which makes any workday better.

.

If you’re lucky enough to find something you’re good at and love doing, you’re less likely to think of it as “just work.”

.

You don’t have to come up with these ideas yourself. Go online for ideas or ask your employees.  

.

Giving employees a few minutes a day to cut loose can make them much more appreciative and productive when they do need to put their noses to the grindstone.

.

Enhancing the work atmosphere is worth the effort and will bring you happier and more productive employees.
