Working at Google sounds is a dream job or many people, thanks to the employee benefits the company offers. At other Fortune 500 companies as well, employers provide some of the best workplaces for their employees. At the same time, some non-standard benefits (benefits given in addition to salary and other perks) force employees to spend all their time at work which results in poor work-life balance. So, even the best employer may not really be the best fit for everyone.

workplace How to be happy at your workplace?

According to me, we can be happy at our workplace if we adhere to the following factors:

  • Choose to be happy at Work: Being happy is in your hands. Always think positively about your work and grow in the aspects of work which you like. Avoid negative people. Find coworkers you like and spend time with them because your choices will define your work.
  • Take responsibility for what is happening at work: People generally complain that they do not receive proper information and communication from their bosses. You should develop your own channels to gather the required information to work more efficiently. Also, arrange a daily or weekly meeting with your boss and ask him all the questions/ doubts to learn about status updates and progress on your tasks. We are in charge of the all the information we receive.
  • Do something you love: Reflect on your work and find something that you truly enjoy doing every day.
  • Take charge of personal as well as career development: You should always keep working on yourself. This helps you to grow professionally as well as personally. Taking charge of your own growth is the road to happiness.
  • Avoid Negativity: Avoid negative thoughts, gossips and unhappy people as much as possible.
  • Make commitments you can meet: The most important cause of work stress is failing to meet commitments. Always make commitments you can meet within the deadline. Don’t volunteer if you don’t have time. If the workload is exceeding time and energy available, make a comprehensive plan and ask around for help and resources.
