People work throughout the major part of their lives in order to provide themselves with money and to be involved in a favorite occupation. Otherwise, life would be senseless. For this reason, the working atmosphere is vital not only for the firm or organization but also for a person’s mental state. By achieving strong employee relationships, a firm may benefit a lot. Besides, this is a key to the successful operation of an organization. If an employer wants to promote his company and achieve greatest results, he or she must think about a healthy and positive atmosphere in the team.
Employer-employee relations are essential for successful business and affect the productive working process as well. Moreover, by providing good and convenient conditions to the staff, a leader obtains numerous advantages in return. Hence, the question of building positive employee relationships will always be crucial for a firm’s prosperity.
Considering the numerous benefits of positive atmosphere in the team of company’s workers and between bosses and their subordinates, one may single out several most important ones. Just to name such an outcome as productivity, a great impact on the overall welfare of an organization may be traced. If there is a pleasant and friendly atmosphere in the collective body of a firm, it is certain to increase employee motivation. Therefore, it boosts the productivity of every member of staff, resulting in the growth of business incomes and many other profits for the entire firm. Moreover, ever more employees stay loyal to a company because of a pleasant working environment. Thus, there may be fewer problems with recruitment. There are no doubts that positive atmosphere in the workplace is a sheet-anchor for an organization striving to business success and superior performance (Nagelkerk, 2005).
According to the study of O’Brien (2014), one significant pattern of achieving productivity may be singled out; if the staff of a firm is happy and experiences no conflicts both with employers and colleagues, this objective is achieved. The way in which business owners and managers of the company build their relationship with subordinates determines whether an organization will be prosperous or not (O’Brien, 2014). That is why an increasing number of employers stick to the method of several R’s to provide their employees with a healthy and positive working environment. The first crucial aspect shows that when the leader is not afraid to trust some serious work to the staff, he or she encourages subordinates to bring more profit to a firm and develop their professional skills (Williams, 2012).
Another significant thing making people work better is the awareness that they are respected and appreciated. Without this attitude, an employee may decide to find another job sooner or later. Employers forgetting to reward their subordinates thus fail to understand the benefits they will obtain from these initiatives; for instance, when somebody gets a bonus or some extra salary for good work, he or she becomes interested in further development and execution of new tasks at a professional level. All these tiny but important actions lead to enhancing productive cooperation, ultimately bringing success to an organization. If there are no conditions attracting and motivating an employee, the worker is reluctant to accomplish tasks correctly and brilliantly (Williams, 2012).
Taking into consideration all arguments presented above, one may admit the importance of building positive employee relationships both for a firm and for a person working in it. Leaders and managers of an organization should pay deliberate attention to the question of improving the working environment. Otherwise, neglect to employee well-being may lead any company to a failure and even bankruptcy. Until every employer understands the necessity of providing his or her subordinates with comfortable conditions in their workplaces, an organization may not be able to achieve business excellence because its human capital and resources are not utilized to the fullest.
