Making Employees Happy
It was uncommon for our ancestors to spend half of their waking hours in one position.
It would be completely unnatural and unhealthy.
Nowadays, though, we don’t have such qualms, especially if the end goal is making money.
That’s why more and younger people are being diagnosed with disorders that in the past, could only be found among the elderly.
Unfortunately, in the modern economy, it is increasingly more challenging to avoid jobs that require sitting long hours in front of the computer screen.
Thankfully, as time passed, the employers noticed that the more content and happy their employees are, the more effective is their work.
150 years ago injuries and severed fingers were routine for working in a factory, whereas now, you can find ping-pong tables in almost every office.
You can also find stationary bikes, pull-up bars, and treadmills that encourage employees to engage in physical activity.
Although some of the things that are meant to improve productivity may feel forced, the idea behind them is correct: If the employee is to achieve the best results, he’ll need to feel comfortable.
It means that if you are scared of your boss, or if the work conditions are not appropriate, the company will lose money.
This concern may be motivated by something else than just the eagerness to be kind to the employees, but the end effect is satisfactory to both sides.
