Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn

In a fast and sometimes stressful job market, creating job satisfaction is more important than ever. More job satisfaction can reduce both the amount of illness and the risk of stress. Most people spend most of their time in the workplace, but don't necessarily think so much about what it does to their quality of life. When you're happier, you become more motivated, engaged, productive, service-minded and team-oriented.

The Communication and Language Careers section gives you here 4 quick tips on how to create a little more work satisfaction in your everyday life:

Pay attention to your routines

Often it's easy to fall back on the 'easiest' way to do your job, but job satisfaction is often linked to a sense of freedom and co-determination. Work on planning your work day, and discuss with your boss if you feel compelled to work in ways that are in the way of your job satisfaction. The process is as important as the results, so it's a good idea to vary your work day.

Remember your colleagues and good relationships

We are often more dependent on social contact at work than we immediately think. Many studies indicate that the relationship with colleagues is central to the joy of work. By using your colleagues, also socially, you can work with them to create a work culture where fun and seriousness are followed. Make sure to talk to your colleagues every day, and be open to talking with them both at and outside the workplace. Then you can help each other for greater shared job satisfaction.

Focus on your own successes and your own professionalism

Although your colleagues can help create a healthy and positive work environment, job satisfaction is ultimately your own responsibility and it's not something that can come from outside. You need to create results that are meaningful to yourself and able to find pleasure in creating them: The experience of developing professionally also provides job satisfaction. Think about the latest successes or small advances that show you're making a difference.

Remember the breaks

It has been proven repeatedly that both job satisfaction and productivity decrease if we don't give ourselves space to continually relax from our work. This is both during the working day, but also during the weekend, where during stressful periods you may often want to take the work home. Remind yourself that ultimately you're also maximizing your own efficiency by taking a step back and giving yourself some respite.
