People biggest factor in good office environment

Posted online

Office environment ... are we talking desks and chairs, or is the office environment more affected by the people who work there, the employees of these many offices?

We have all experienced a wide variety of office environments, from cold and curt to warm and friendly. Often a company's feeling of success and camaraderie are apparent as visitors cross the threshold of the office setting: Observe busy people, happy people who are openly friendly, secure enough to welcome even an unannounced stranger into their workplace.

In comfortable surroundings and I'm not referring to furniture there is a sense of teamwork and support for coworkers.

Respect and friendship in the workplace are the result of understanding the value of each employee to that company.

A company can buy expensive chairs and desks, but how does a company develop an employee into a positive, effective member of the corporate team? At Springfield ReManufacturing Corporation, we play The Great Game of Business and all employees are contributing winners.

The Great Game of Business, based on open-book management, teaches employees to think and act as business owners, to develop a complete understanding of the income statement, the cash flow statement and the balance sheet. Through this approach, the employees understand how the business really works. Their understanding stimulates and supports a positive office environment: a team approach to problem solving[[In-content Ad]]
