The detrimental effects of stress are well documented. Ask people what their greatest source of stress is, and many will name their job. Keeping the workplace atmosphere relaxed and fun doesn’t just benefit your employees, it also benefits you.
Less Sick Time
With proven correlations between poor health and workplace stress, it stands to reason that the inverse is also true. Employees who have a positive work environment tend to be healthier and take fewer sick days as a result.
When employees know that they’ll be given grace rather than scolded or ridiculed for proposing a solution that may not work, they’re more willing to take risks. This can result in innovative approaches to common problems that wouldn’t have occurred otherwise.
