BizNet Reports On Work Place Violence
A recent survey has reported that 1 in 50 American workers
has admitted to physically assaulting another worker! Hey, we are not talking
about a co-worker, loosing it and yelling and screaming and throwing a fit.
We are talking about one person hitting, striking or kicking, another
person! And 1 in 50 is just for the people willing to admit they got violent
with a co-worker!
And It gets even worse:
OSHA has this to say :
" Workplace violence has emerged as an important
safety and health issue in today's workplace. Its most extreme form,
homicide, is the second leading cause of fatal occupational injury in
the United States."
What is going on? Have we gone MAD!
Are bosses forgetting that a happy, relaxed worker is a good worker.
Have we as a society forgotten how to relax? Chill
No, we have just gotten totally utterly and completely
stressed out. We know how to have
fun; we have just forgotten the importance of it.
Remember what you were told as a child.
Hitting is a NO, NO. Look,
you don't have to like or respect your co-worker.
You do have to work with them. It's
never easy to do. When you’re
stressed out, it can be impossible to do.
Think about that word "DEADLine".
Look, if you absolutely have to do your job and get it done by a certain
time etc., then you had better have some fun.
“Stop wasting my time! Fun does not pay the bills!”
You’re right, fun does not pay the bills, but...
It gives you the recharge you need so you can get your work done.
Look, if you get stressed out, your work quality and speed will suffer.
So, if you take the time to recharge, and de-stress, your work will be
better, and go faster and more smoothly. You
will also live longer to enjoy the rewards.
So, start thinking about ways to bring some stress relief
into your day. It's OK to have fun
Hey, you big bosses.... You cannot only bring some fun into
the office, but you can use those fun things to build team spirit and co-worker
camaraderie. And that means more
productivity and a better bottom line!
In the months to come BizNet will be talking about, and
showing you, different ways of reducing stress, from simple things every worker
can do by themselves to team and family events.
After all, when you know someone, socialize and have fun
with them, it makes working and communicating with then easier!
So take a break and do something fun!
