The Hidden Benefits of Happy Co-Workers

It’s very likely each organization has a high level of employee engagement.


While most employers want to increase employee engagement, many tend to overlook one factor: co-worker relationships. Yet, according to Globoforce’s recent report, "The Effect of Work Relationships on Organizational Culture and Commitment," employees who have quality relationships with their co-workers are more likely to be engaged and happy at work.


To boost employee engagement and productivity, employers must create a culture filled with healthy co-worker relationships. Here are some ways employers can establish positive relationships in the workplace:


1. Encourage workplace friendships.

There’s no doubt American workers spend more time at work than they do at home. In fact, Globoforce discovered 78 percent of people who work 30 to 50 hours a week spend more time with co-workers than with their families.


Employers should encourage workplace friendships because they will boost employee morale. For example, Globoforce discovered 73 percent of the employees surveyed have laughed together and 61 percent have cried with a co-worker. Supportive and trusting relationships help employees stay engaged and maintain a sense of belonging at a company.


2. Celebrate together.

According to Globoforce, 74 percent of the employees surveyed who hadn't celebrated accomplishments with their co-workers said they are more likely to leave their jobs.


To boost employee engagement and happiness, recognize employee accomplishments with the entire company, I advise. This will prevent employee turnover and dissatisfaction in the workplace.


3. Create meaningful milestone events.

Milestone events such as employee anniversaries can serve as a time for employees to reflect on their accomplishments and growth. Fifty percent of the employees surveyed view work anniversaries a time of reflection, according to Globoforce.


For milestone events, I advise recognizing employees for their accomplishments and citing memorable activities they shared with the company and co-workers. Create a presentation illustrating an employee's accomplishments and highlighting some fun memories.
