Provide a break room

The first, and really a simple thing to do, is to provide your employees with a break room. All you have to do is set aside some space, put in a fridge, a coffee maker, a kettle, sink and a table. It really is as simple as this. It just gives your employees somewhere to go when they are on break, so they are not stuck sitting at their desk if they want to move around. It also gives a more social area for them to talk to each other when they are on their breaks. Improving the amount of social interaction in your business is a great way to improve the overall mood of your employees.

Look at the organization of workspaces

The next thing that you should do is look at the way you have the workspace organized. You might want to think of changing to a hot desk kind of design instead of having everyone crammed into one area, sharing a limited amount of space. In this kind of conditions, people are bound to get frustrated, and this is not what you want. You need your employees to be happy because happy employees are hard-working employees.

Talk to your employees

The final thing that you can do to improve the working conditions of your business is to talk to your employees. See what they want. Find out what kind of things would make them happier. Ask them how they would prefer the workplace to be arranged. Figure out if they have any ideas as to what would help them to help you. Keeping a personal relationship with your employees is important so that they can be open and honest with you. You need to keep the lines of communication between you and them open at all times. You want them to talk to you when they feel like something is wrong without fear that you are going to get angry and fire them.

If you want your business to succeed, this is going to start with your employees. You have got to be taking on board their advice and making them feel heard, rather than just pretending to listen and ignoring everything they say. If they feel like you’re working hard for them, they are going to work hard for you.
