You wake up in the morning, go to work, sit in front of our laptop the whole day and sleep at night. This is the usual routine of any working professional. And you are all expected to do the same thing every day. And to add to it, you are being also judged on how long you sit in our cubicle/desk at the office! But is this the only factor to judge one's work? No, right? Let's talk more about it.
Past week, I heard my colleague say that he can't join us on a tea break as he had been out earlier as well. It struck me right there! Will sitting in front of our desks improve our productivity? Or the company's productivity? What impact can it pose to an organization with people of this mindset? Let's list some:
The company's culture plays a vital role in achieving the company's goals. We saw some breathtaking changes in the corporate working style from allowing
work from home to now slowly moving with
remote working culture. With all of these current trends, having such a sort of mindset will surely take one organization backward rather than forward into the future.
Nobody really wants to be in a stressful work environment, after all.
Everybody has their own ways of finding creativity.
One just cannot create or impart ideas by sitting in front of their desks the whole day. Why do we take vacations or mini-breaks? For us to find peace which enhances our senses to work better, isn't it?
Creativity and productivity of an employee increase when you allow them to work in their own way.
I think nowadays everybody understands the health hazard of sitting for too long. Also, when you take short breaks in between your work, you stay more active in your work. There is a lot of research around work habits to avoid health issues of sitting for too long. If you haven't read yet, it is time to start reading it!
Giving employees the freedom to work in their own way, motivates them. Motivation is the key to take up new initiatives. Work culture has a greater impact on employees' motivation than any other cause I feel. It is often said that
Employees leave their managers not organization.
Managers with such a mindset can not only break their team but an entire organization. Employee attrition is a greater risk than employee hiring. Hiring correct individuals for your organization is very vital to its success.
Last but not least, this toxic culture will break employee organization relationships. An employee will stop caring about the organization which will impact most of the decisions an employee takes for the better good. The organization will eventually see a lot of attrition or even closure in the end!
