Do you have friends at your current job? Or is it your first day at work? Regardless, you may want to start reaching out to your peers. It has been proven that having friends at your workspace increases productivity in employees, making them more motivated and loyal to the company. However, it doesn’t mean that making friends in the office is easy. Here are 4 ways to forging friendships in your workspace.
Always take the time to greet and say good morning to your fellow employees. It is surprising how many people complain about their co-workers not acknowledging them in the morning. It can perceive the image that you are unfriendly, and can sometimes hurt other employees that are trying to build a connection.
The best way to fit in at work and have a healthy relationship with your coworkers is to have their back. For example, if a co worker is struggling with a professional project or even personal issues, step up and give them a hand. Or when you are on the way to pick up lunch, always ask if anyone else wants something.
Like you would with a friendship outside of work, always recognize your co-workers who have gone the extra mile for you or the company, and try to reciprocate it. We develop learning how to appreciate co workers good work, and continuing to reciprocate it. It also gives u a good reputation at work and more people will want to work with you, to open more opportunities.
Despite the situations faced at work, try to remain positive. Most people do not like surrounding themselves with negative people, as it radiates bad vibes throughout the company. People tend to prefer and remember those that praise them and radiate positive qualities. For example, having a positive conversation with a coworker, will allow them to likely walk away thinking of you as a friendly and helpful person.
