Your Workplace Right For You?

For most of us, our work life is what takes up most of our daily time. It is therefore hugely important that this time is spent as well as possible, no matter what the work itself might be. Clearly, there is a great joy in being able to feel confident, happy and capable with our work. But it can often be extremely challenging ensuring that that is the case. If you feel that you could be getting more out of your work, it might be that there is a problem (or five…) with the workplace itself. There are certain qualities that most of us would admit to wanting from the workplace, and knowing what those are can help you to decide whether or not it is time to move jobs. Let’s take a look at some of the most important qualities of the workplace which you should be looking out for.

This first quality can mean a number of things, and can manifest in various ways in the workplace itself. In one respect, to be open simply means that the actual space is as open as possible. There are plenty of studies which suggest that open spaces in the workplace lead to a more beneficial kind of atmosphere, and one which is much more likely to produce decent work. But openness also means that there is an easygoing quality to the way that everyone communicates. This, too, leads to a better approach to the work, but it also importantly makes the actual experience of being there a much happier one. If you feel that your current workplace is not quite open enough, then you might want to think of changing to somewhere else.


To be blunt: if you don’t feel safe in the workplace, it is unlikely that you will want to stay there for very long. There can be a number of ways in which a lack of safety can appear, and you should be sure to be vigilant for all of them. In general, it is clearest in the actual culture of the workplace whether or not those in charge particularly care about your safety. If they don’t, it might be that they are not strictly following health and safety guidelines, or perhaps there is even a genuine complacency in the way they carry out daily tasks. If this is the case, and something happens, you might even have a case for filing a personal injury claim. However, it is best to avoid being injured in the first place, and get yourself out of such a workplace at your earliest convenience.

If you are able to enjoy a light-hearted atmosphere in the workplace, then you can be sure that you are going to enjoy the actual work much more. What’s more, you will probably get more done, and that is good for everyone. There is much that affects the atmosphere of the office, but it is important to remember that you have as big a part to play in this as anyone else. Everyone who is present is part of it, so make sure you don’t overlook that fact if you are keen on working somewhere happy.
