Workers' moods 'can be improved through communication'
The moods of permanent and temporary workers in the UK can be improved in a few simple ways, one specialist has stated.
David Liddle, founder and director of Total Conflict Management (TCM Group), said that the easiest way to lighten the mood in the office is to have good communication, respectful relationships between staff and seek out opportunities to meet socially outside of work.
He also recommended finding a way of working in the office that meets everyone's needs, rather than just switching the radio on, as somebody in the office may not be able to concentrate.
Of course, the benefit of technology is that you can plug in earphones if you want to listen to music, but the way for a productive healthy team is if people connect with each other and do not isolate themselves.
Recently, Carole Spiers, business stress consultant and author of Show Stress Who's Boss!, said that the moods and attitudes of the nation's permanent and temporary workers can be boosted in the coming weeks through managers trying to increase motivation.
