6 crucial things required at work for us to thrive (and stay)!

At work we spend eight hours a day, five days a week, which is sometimes not enough. That we enjoy ourselves, have fun and feel proud of our work are some of the things that are required for us to stay. Here we list the 6 most important.

1. Having fun

Enjoying and having fun at work is important! Svenska dagbladet published the results of a survey conducted among 5,000 Swedes on behalf of the HR group Wise group. It then turned out that having fun at work is more important for happiness than having a family. “This survey shows that work is more important than family to achieve happiness and that we should take even more seriously how things are at work.” says Stefan Rossi, CEO at Wise.

2. To be proud of one’s work/workplace

Feeling proud of your professional role and the company you work for is important. Dagens Analys writes that nearly 80% of young people look over corporate social responsibility (CSR) when looking for a job. In other words, we want to be able to stand behind the company’s values ​​in order to thrive.

3. Good work relations

Good working relationships are key to being happy at work, according to a study conducted by the researchers at the University of Tel Aviv. The site Motivation highlights the study conducted on 820 people who believe that people who feel supported by their colleagues receive several health benefits and also have a chance to live longer.

4. The feeling of belonging to the team

We humans are herd animals and according to the FIRO model (Fundamental Interpersonal Relations Orientation) we constantly strive to belong to the group and find our role in it. We humans want to feel seen, heard and involved. If we feel outside the group, we will not enjoy ourselves in the long run.

5. Independence with clear goals

Being able to control one’s own work to a certain extent is a prerequisite for being happy at work, writes the newspaper Kollega, which published a research study based on data from nearly 9,500 employees. Public health scientist Cathrine Reineholms believes that independence and clear goals are important. “Managers should not steer with the whole hand, but point out the direction”.

6. Development opportunities

Doing the same thing day in and day out can eventually become boring and unsatisfying… Then it’s easy to start looking for new challenges. Of course, we are all different, but many people want to feel that there are opportunities for development in the workplace. Learning new things and being assigned new challenging tasks can therefore provide a boost of new energy and well-being.
