Ever wanted to peek inside your boss’ mind to discover what really gets on their nerves and what you can do to impress them?
In a recent business survey commissioned by UK online printer instantprint, 500 senior operatives were asked a range of questions to discover what traits they love and loathe in their employees.
Interestingly, being a cynical or a pessimistic presence in the office is regarded as a worse trait than dressing inappropriately, poor hygiene and being disorganised!
44% said that employees with positive attitudes would make their lives a lot easier and a huge 58% said that they can’t stand employees who have a negative attitude.
Since having a good attitude is rated so highly by bosses it’s important that you feel calm and collected in the workplace so that you can be your best self. This can be difficult when emails are building up, you have back to back meetings and creeping deadlines.
Below are some simple ways you can make your interior a calmer place to be so you can radiate positive vibes at work.
- Include more plants or a view of nature.
- Make sure the temperature is right.
- Personalize your desk – and keep it tidy!
- Make sure there’s enough natural light.
- Let fresh air in.
