About a third of our lives are spent at work, and for most people, it’s about more than just making money. Work feeds into many different aspects of our lives, influencing self-identity, self-esteem and opportunities for personal growth. The presence of professionalism in a workplace and among co-workers can have a range of impacts, including greater productivity, better cultural fit with co-workers, decreased stress, and a more successful career.
Finding a professional group of people to work with
A professional workplace attitude and appearance allows workers to take pride in their work and improves worker performance, fosters respect, and establishes boundaries while maintaining an enjoyable and vibrant working environment. It is important to find a professional group of people to work with, with whom you share similar values and goals – the significance of cultural fit, or “clicking” with your co-workers cannot be overstated. Signs of a professional working environment include co-workers who are polite and respectful, project a positive business appearance, maintain ethical conduct and go about their work with sincerity.
The Importance of a professional workplace
Just like the people you surround yourself with at work, it is important to consider the physical space you work in. Where we work contributes to how we work. The most obvious reason is the need to project a positive image for your clients, as they will see your physical space as a reflection of you. Additionally, your surroundings can be a source of inspiration. A well-designed workplace, with attention paid to qualities such as colour, lighting, sound and furniture can help ideas flow. A workspace that functions properly will allow you to work more efficiently and productively.
