Change the Atmosphere

If your boss allows it, change up the place! If you have a work environment that looks drab and grey, lighten it up with flowers, plants, motivational pictures or artistic paintings. Your work environment is everything when it comes to spending eight hours a day there, even if it is your home office. By changing the color scheme and working in some color, or even adding some feng shui touches, you will have an overall brighter experience each day.

Communicate Effectively

When employees lack communication in their day, there is a lot of room for negative thoughts and feelings to grow. Employees should be offered the option to talk to their employers whenever they need to. This can boost morale and create a healthy form of communication between colleagues.

Team Building Events Go a Long Way

Team building has always been a fantastic way to get employees on a positive path. It creates a sense of community in the workplace and can be an excellent way to encourage employees to communicate with their fellow colleagues. Some employees may feel negative when they go to work every day because they have no one to talk to. By giving everyone a chance to participate in a team building event, you can change the negative atmosphere of the office into a positive one.

    Just my opinion, but if it was your destiny or where you truly belonged, you would be happy and content. It sounds like you are in a very unhealthy atmosphere. I would move forward finding your true destiny. You will know because it will feel happy and content. Do not sale yourself short, you deserve to be happy.

    Dear James W :

    I would ask the Human Resources Dept for a little sit down meeting with this employee that took offense at your gesture of courtesy.

    A 3 way meeting with a human resource person there as well….and in this meeting, I would take the high ground, and, ( ever so nicely and professionally ), explain that you were just being considerate and showing common courtesy . AND THEN I would offer an apology over any misunderstanding that arose over that gesture.

    Take the high ground in this situation and I feel you will stop this nonsense in it’s tracks with this individual,… AND leave Human Resources with a good impression about you as well.
    It’s worth a try.

    Good Luck….Gina Rose ext.9500

    I work as a custodian. I’ve only been there not quite 10 months yet. It started off pretty good or so I thought. My previous job (there for 19 years), I was a supervisor of housekeeping. I left my previous job because new owners were bascially replacing upper management with their own people. So , I’ve applied for other management positions but to no avail. Well, I’ve had to take whatever was available…and it is this terrible job. I’m a little older than most of the other custodians and we don’t relate to each other. There’s NO conversating between us at all. I feel really alone. I’ve even tried to talk with the main housekeeping managers but “I” , feel like they are sometimes threatend by me. You know that,”job security” thing. All I EVER wanted was to get my foot in the door. I’ve done that. However, I feel like I’m stuck because the hours are ok and I finally get my weekends off but the pay is horrible and so is the enviroment. What should I do? I’m 49 years old. I’ve once again applied for other positions at the job but nothing. One more thing, I forgot to mention, when I first started this job I was placed in a area where the department has constant changes . Well, I end up in this awful area. I was mopping the floor and I madethe mistake of saying, “excuse me”, the nerve of me, lol! Well this individual took it personally and went through not only her department but the whole building and began to spread falsehoods about what I merely said to her. I heard through the grapevine that she’s been there for a “100” years and believes she rules the place. Just as an outsider looking inside, I feel and know some of the employees are followers and not leaders and listened to this nonsense of her and have begun to judge me because of this ridiculousness. As I write about this, it does sounds weird but it’s how I see things. Please, someone help me to decide what to do. Lonely and frustrated.
