There are many different opinions as to what it takes to truly make a great workplace environment. Some people will argue that the possible “perks” associated with a company are what to look for, while others will say that it is the hours you will have to put in. When it comes down to it I believe that everyone would agree that the following three key elements are what really matter:

Trust

The first thing that everyone wants in their workplace environment is trust in the people that they work for. Employees want to know that they can rely upon what it is that they are doing and whom they are doing it for. If there is trust in that work relationship then the potential for long lasting and happy employees is much greater.

Pride

The second key element that falls more on the employees themselves and not just their superiors is pride. People who have pride in what they do are far more likely to have positive experiences than those who do not. That positivity passes on to the other employees as well, spreading the upbeat atmosphere.

Respect

The third key element is respect, for not only yourself, but the people that you work with as well. If you respect someone, when there are differences of opinion or problems, then you can work with that person to solve the problem rather than against them.

What all of this boils down to is attitude – as long as you are positive and respectful of the people around you then it is very easy to have a great workplace environment!
