Amidst all the professional communication seminars and team building meetings, we sometimes forget about the little things that make the work environment nicer, and our lives a little easier. Here's a refresher on a couple of them.
Putting stuff back where they belong
When you're busy zooming across the office space, printing, stapling and photocopying important documents, it's always important to remember to put office supplies back where they belong. It saves the trouble for your co-workers for when they need the stapler. It would also help to avoid unnecessary chaos during crunch times at the office. It's also best to carry your own supplies to avoid having to borrow from co-workers. So, don't lose track of the stapler, important office documents and other people's belongings.
Treating all employees with respect
This pertains particularly to peons and similar office staff. It's always important to remember that they are the life force of the office, always keeping the paper trays filled up and cleaning the water filter. They will also get you tea whenever you desire, so don't take out your frustrations on them. Be respectful and always appreciate the work they do.
Paying your dues
If your office has a canteen, then always remember to pay your bills, unless it's a treat from a co-worker. It would save you from the embarrassment of coming into work the next day and being reminded of your due bills. Also try not to keep dues on purpose, you'll break the office economy.
