Building a Healthier Work Environment, Part 2: Employees

Workplace Wellness for Employees

A healthier work environment starts with you. Assessing how you feel about the work you do and the contribution you make to the company’s success is the first step to creating a healthier work environment. Take a moment to tap into how you really feel about your work.

Feeling GREAT about your work and your work environment needs continual attention and frequent re-assessment. Here are some simple steps you can take to feel great about your work:

  1. Understand the mission and the vision of the company. Why are you doing what you do? Find out where you fit into this mission, and how you can help.
  2. Live up to the values set by the organization. If there are no values, help your employer define your values. You must feel in line with the company values.
  3. Be clear about your job duties and be responsible for getting it done.
  4. Seek to add value to the company. How can you best use your talents to help the company be more successful?
  5. Look objectively at how things are done, recognize what works and doesn’t work, and offer suggestions for improvement.
  6. Be creative and diligent in working towards solutions for the things that aren’t working well.
  7. Take pride in your company and your contribution to the company’s mission.
  8. Contribute constructive ideas. Seek never ending improvement.
  9. Don’t settle for the ways things are. Work for the change.

There are endless ways to creating a healthier work environment. Start by assessing your attitude about work and take it from there. Find small things you can change and positive things will come.
