The Importance Of Supporting Your Colleagues

A workforce that is content and where staff have good relationships with all their colleagues are far more likely to be more productive. All members of staff will have a collective need for a harmonious environment in which they are able to thrive, both individually and as a team.

A workforce that is content and where staff have good relationships with all their colleagues are far more likely to be more productive. All members of staff will have a collective need for a harmonious environment in which they are able to thrive, both individually and as a team.

The average person who works full time will spend the majority of their working week with their colleagues and that is a lot of hours. In many cases, you may be with your colleagues more than your own family and friends or indeed it may feel that way.

Offices are frequently designed so that colleagues are in close proximity with desks arranged opposite or next to one another which is often essential due to the necessity for rapid communication. However, that is a positive thing if you can feel the support of those around you during the working day as a good network of supportive colleagues can really make a big difference to how motivated and dedicated you feel towards work.

A good colleague can support you, communicate well with you and respect and trust your judgements. They will be genuinely happy for your successes and achievements and then will also be there for you to help pick you back up when something has not gone too well or as planned.

Of course, from time to time there will inevitably be a disagreement or a series of challenges. Yet if you trust that the working environment has a zero tolerance for any unpleasant or hurtful confrontations, criticisms or gossipping, then you can concentrate fully upon your work, with the knowledge that your colleagues ultimately ‘have your back’.

In this type of environment, you will want to do your best for yourself, your colleagues and your company. You will want to excel, not for praise but simply because you want to -  and you care. Each individual colleague is very different from another colleague. Each can offer a diverse variety of skills, talents,opinions and experiences and with mutual respect, this can prove to be extremely beneficial. Often in life, the quietest voices are seldom heard and the more dominant personalities can overshadow the majority but in a place of work where all colleagues are ‘on the same page’ then everyone has an equal voice which is heard.

The importance of a well balanced and supportive working environment can not be understated in regards to people's mental health, especially when statistics tell us that staying in a less than pleasant workplace exacerbates stress, exhaustion and burnout.

Attending a careers fair can be a valuable opportunity for anyone who is looking to explore potential job and career opportunities. At a careers fair, you can learn about a wide range of companies and organizations in one place, and have the opportunity to speak with representatives from these companies to learn more about what they do and what kind of opportunities they have available. This can be a great way to gain insights into different industries and career paths, and can help you to make more informed decisions about your future career.
