Chill And Be Happy In Office Chill And Be Happy In Office
 
Are you unhappy with your work? Bored out with the monotony of repetitive tasks in office? Well, don't worry. Here are some good way-outs.

Wednesday, September 19, 2007: 

In Indian ethos, work gives us a sense of belongingness to the society and through our work only we feel that we are in a way contributing to the society we live in. Since our childhood, we have been taught to believe that 'Work is worship'. But all these age-old teachings seem to be nothing more than empty philosophical rumblings when we have to work for 12-14 hours everyday. Even our body rejects the torturous routine that our profession forces us to follow. Eventually, we end up messing our lives.

Researchers have found out that job satisfaction increases with age and the ones most satisfied are above 65. But it's not possible to have 65 plus employees working in an organisation. Most employees working in the BPO/ITes sector are in their early or late 20s. Working day in and day out like robots, they find their jobs monotonous and unsatisfactory. Since the employees are not happy, they resort to mindless job hopping without thinking of the pros and cons. The result is high attrition rate, which strikes panic among HR managers. The findings of the research suggest that salary is not exactly the reason behind employee dissatisfaction. So the questions that remain to be answered are: What is the problem? Why are so many employees unhappy? How can the problem be solved?

To find a way out of this intriguing problem, the management is striving hard to keep the employees happy. Many employee-friendly policies are also being incorporated but finally it is you, (the employee) who should guide your thoughts in a positive direction and change yourself to be happy. This will, in turn, help you increase your efficiency and enhance your performance too.

Here are a few valuable tips for you.

Know Yourself
Plan out your career goals, know what you actually want from your profession and set short achievable targets. Don't try to take an unplanned leap. Work step by step. As Dhanesh, Team Lead from a well known BPO, says, "Mostly, I have seen agents looking for short cuts to success. Hence they fail to achieve it and end up being frustrated." First, you need to work towards your goals and then look for results. You should be well-defined about your strength and weakness. This will help you improve. Always be aware of the happenings around you in office and seek out for the information that is relevant to you. Don't forget to ask for feedback from your seniors. This will help you improve faster.

Get Rid Of Monotony
It is not unnatural that you are bored out with your day-to-day repetitive tasks. So what you need is change. Now it's high time that you try and analyse one thing. What made you select this job? There must be something about it that excites and motivates you to work. Find out what you enjoy doing most in your work and do it everyday. This is sure to make you happy. Take new projects that you would like to work on. Talk about your plans and take suggestions from your senior, whom you are comfortable with. If you are in a senior position, talk to your juniors, look out for ways to help them. This will in a way enhance your sense of satisfaction.

Thinking Makes It So
True. You think therefore you are. Yes! it is just how we take things. Your happiness largely depends on your choice between happiness and sorrow. If you let others irritate you and rule your emotions you will end up being sad. Life always gives you choices. It is you who has to decide what to accept and what not. After all, it's just a thought. Try being with the ones having positive thoughts. Accept the universal fact that evil is easier to grasp and it affects us more easily. So here is a word of caution. If you want to be happy, then stay away from people .

Make Your Colleagues Your Friends
You need to be professional at work but try making friends at workplace. Believe it or not, it helps to have people around you who have similar vibes like you. You spend the most of your time in a day with your colleagues. They are the ones who are with you during the time of your professional turmoils. A research has even proved that the ones who like their colleagues and interact with them, are the happiest in their jobs.

Create Rewards For Yourself
Yes, you can create rewards for your own achievements. True that it is the responsibility of your management to reward you and recognise your work. But if that is the only criterion for your happiness, then you might end up waiting in vain. Now the question is what can you do ? Simple, create rewards for yourself. But how? Think again about the things you would love to do. If you like watching movies then treat yourself with one if you are able to meet your deadlines. This will nurture you emotionally and make you feel proud of the work you do.

So, these are some golden tips that might help you. We could only suggest ways but in the end it's you who will need to take the decisive step. Just keep yourself cool and of course, organised. You will see the difference and enjoy it.
