It’s quite obvious that being happy at work is essential to maintaining good overall health and happiness.
Most of us however, at some point in our careers, have experienced the feeling of being overworked, stressed, and frustrated in the office. Often times this frustration at work can transfer to other elements of you life, leaving you feeling worn out and unhappy.
ResortCom has recently introduced a new initiative in our company culture, and is an idea that has been embraced by us here in the wellness committee. So much so in fact, that we had to share with the blogging world! This new initiative is simple: WOW.
The “WOW” initiative is an attitude that promotes growth , change, and an overall positive atmosphere in the office. Positive motivation comes from positive thinking, and positive thinking comes from a healthy mind. This is the type of atmosphere we are trying to implement in the office here at ResortCom.
The initiative has been set in place to enhance all aspects of our work culture; from relationships, to atmosphere, customer service, and business strategies, the WOW initiative seeks to bring overall positive change and growth to our company and employees.
I thought I’d share with our readers an activity that we did here in our office to kick off this new initiative.
I present to you, “The WOW Board!”
This board was a great way to get everyone in the office to participate in sharing and brainstorming ideas about the WOW culture. We designed the poster in Illustrator and quickly and easily printed it off at a nearby Kinkos. We then hung it up in our employee lounge and provided post-its and markers that we placed nearby.
We asked everyone to think of one word or phrase that describes what a WOW atmosphere means to them. It was a great way to get everyone brainstorming and participating, and gave us some great ideas as we continue to implement this new initiative at ResortCom.
Sometimes all it takes is a little team spirit and new, creative ways of thinking to begin to make big changes – and healthy ones!
