Transforming our happiness at work through the power of communication

This week is International Week of Happiness at Work which aims to increase morale at work, whether you are leading a team or an entire business, guiding clients or seeking to increase your own levels of positivity.

We’re all currently facing significant changes and challenges to many aspects of our lives, both at a business and personal level due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We’ve had to adapt to new ways of working and communicating, amid restrictions.

Being agile and clear in our communications is more important than ever. By moving to a more convenient, accessible and informed approach, we have the chance to provide deeper engagement that could positively change the future of the way we run business and how we build happiness for years to come.

Since lockdown restrictions started, we are more likely to seek information and advice online, paving the way for other online solutions to improve communications strategies. There is an opportunity to take people on a journey to a more responsive digital space that quickly and conveniently addresses their needs and builds increased trust and happiness.

Engaging with professionals

As lockdown restrictions ease, the digital trend looks set to continue. Video conferencing, webinars and online training have become increasingly popular, giving colleagues and customers additional support and helping them to remain positive.

Around the world, organisers of events have also had to re-think their approach, with many sectors going virtual as opposed to postponing or cancelling.

One aspect of hope from the pandemic has been the opportunity to make positive changes to the way we do business. We’re passionate about the cleaning industry, and the crucial contribution it makes to society, so we’re very excited to have developed a high-tech virtual event, Cleaning Interactive TM . Taking place from 6-7 October, it enables the sector to continue to engage with valuable existing and potential customers and suppliers. We believe this new approach will boost the industry by creating a fresh expectation and a deadline for exhibitors and visitors to do business. Our event strikes a balance, by allowing the personal interaction that people still enjoy and greater engagement, in a safe, online space.

As digital transformation is taking place across industries, this is also having an impact on the nature of workplace wellbeing and working practices. The question is, how do we best support our colleagues and customers through these changes and proactively ensure their happiness in this new world of work?
