Did you know that we spend 1/3 of our lives working? And studies show that the quality of our lives also depends on how we feel about our work.
The quality of work life depends on several factors that constitutes the emotional impact on whether we are happy with our chosen career, or not.
Let’s dive into what are the different influences that affect our work perception:
Relationship with our boss and colleagues
While being in an amazing company is great, the tipping point whether one is happy at their work depends on how healthy their relationships are with their supervisor and colleagues.
How they make you feel (such as feeling of being valued and supported) usually defines how far up the happy index you are in.
Awards, Recognitions, and Constructive Feedback
Nowadays, a simple “well-done” and a pat on the back gives a rush of dopamine (the happy hormone) and reinforces good behavior.
Besides from being awarded, the feeling of truly being supported such being given helpful feedback is also crucial.
Being Part of the Company
The sense of belonging to something bigger than one’s department, but of the company, gives one a sense of importance. Not many employers put in the effort of informing the staff the value of their role to the bigger picture.
There are several other factors that influences the quality of work-life and how happy one is.
