What makes a great employee?

We often post about how to improve current styles of management, but company culture and employee engagement is a two sided gig.

Do you want to enjoy your work?

Great!

Just keep in mind that #workplacehappiness is like everything else; you only get out what you put in. 

We already know that the most successful companies in the world have very engaged employees.

It’s also important to remember that employees need to be performing awesomely in order to have a amazing #companyculture within their office.

When you look at highly engaged and productive people, there are certain recurring traits that you see in every great employee. We’ve take the time to bring it down to ten (actually eleven if you count our bonus!).

So here are the 10 Admirable Attributes Of A Great Employee in a clean #infographic:

I’m really not a big fan of meetings.

They’re always slow and awkward to start, there’s very little progress that gets made in meetings, and they always seem to appear at the worst times.

I also think that too many people lack good meeting etiquette, and most meetings can be solved by email or group chat.

If it’s absolutely necessary to have meetings, at least you can follow these tips to have effective meetings.

What it essentially boils down to, is treating people with respect (and listening to them), not making meetings that never end, and ideally having a clear agenda.

Check it out:
Here we have a couple of tips to make meetings suck less and, basically, tips to run effective meetings that will have your and your colleagues at peace.

Do you need any help to boost productivity at work? Try getting “in the zone”

The scientific explanation for being “in the zone” is called Flow.

Have you ever experienced that feeling before? Where you’re so in the zone, that time just seems to be passing without you even realizing it. It’s almost a surreal experience, where you can almost notice how productive you’re currently being.


Each thing that you’re doing is flowing beautifully, and you know in your heart of hearts that you’re producing great work.

This magical feeling is what psychologists call “Flow”.
We provided some lifehacks that will boost productivity at work. We've broken it down to a science to make sure you're able to get in the zone at work!

How Good Habits Are Built

The secret to understanding how good habits are built is consistency.

Here’s an interesting statistic: 45% of our everyday behaviours tend to be repeated in the same location, almost every day.

We are definitely creatures of habit. The trick is to form good habits, and do those every day.

There’s a lot of research that shows that if a project or task seems too big, we won’t want to do it, out of the fear of failure.

The biggest problem is that we fear just starting the task, because we envision the worst parts of it. It scares us to visualize how big of a task this actually is, and what completing it actually entails.

What we usually end up doing instead, is what’s known as “busy work”.  We’ll keep ourselves busy with an unimportant task, simply to avoid, or delay doing the thing we need to do.

It’s really important to understand, and can actually be really hard, but you won’t see change right away. That’s what’s so frustrating.

If you can understand the concept of delayed gratification, you’ll be well on your way. The 2 skills you need here are patience and self-control.

You have probably heard the old saying, People don’t quit their job, they quit their bosses. 

Poor leadership can lead to poor performance across the board.

This is why it’s important to make sure that you have great bosses/managers that are leading the pack and making everyone around them better on a daily basis.

Here are the 12 Outstanding Personality Traits Of A Great Boss:

You should always be trying to build good habits that will make you healthier, happier, and more productive over time.

Aristotle said it best: "We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit."

This infographic will give you an overview of 44 habits that you can bring to your workplace today as well as a gamified way to quantify them:

Joining a new group can be pretty intimidating.

I remember when I joined the team at Officevibe, I was pretty nervous, and wanted to make sure I became friends with the team as quickly as possible.

Luckily, the team here understands how to properly on-board a new employee, so I was okay, but I’ve had different experiences at other companies I’ve worked at.

On-boarding is one of the hardest things to get right in the employee life cycle, but in my opinion, the most important. If you get that part right, then they’ll be that much more engaged, and that much more productive.

Icebreakers are a fun way to get to know people, and make the welcoming of a new employee or group much more enjoyable.

Life is too short not to be happy.

When I look at the data (and there’s a ton), I’m shocked at what I see. There are way too many people that are unhappy at work. Not only that, but there are way too many employers that seem not not care.

Before we dive into the data, does it not make common sense to have happy employees?

Does it not make common sense to just treat people with respect? If you treat them with respect, don’t think you think they’ll reward you and work harder for you? How can it be that so many people don’t understand this?
Having happy employees is a dream scenario that can happen in any office. We've simplified the process and explained how to make employees happy.
