Workplace Enthusiasm & Employee Relationships: What Startups/SMBs Need to Know


Enthusiasm in the workplace is all about how involved your employee is and how interested they really are in the working of the organization. To increase and encourage this, an organization needs to keep its employees as interested and enthusiastic as possible in their job.

Make yourself known

When an employee knows a very negligible amount about the organization, losing interest won’t take too long. Orientation or a quick briefing about what the organization does, what are the long term plans and how the organization intends to achieve them etc. When an employee understands the startup/SMB, they get a sense of purpose and are keen on their work.

A friendly environment

People tend to get more assertive when they are comfortable with the people who surround them. When an individual has got to know all his/her employees, the comfort level will inevitably instil boldness and a less passive sense of working. Hence, it is crucial for your employee to get over their shyness and any animosity to be assertive.

Appropriate delegation

It is very important to make the Michael Jordan of your organization play only basketball, for he would be a disastrous cricketer. Match the employee with his/her skill set to extract the best out of them. Enthusiasm and passion for work go hand-in-hand. Communicate with your employee and get to know what they prefer doing. If you fail to delegate a task to them that they are passionate about, in the least you won’t let them do something they dislike.

Make plans

When it comes to meeting deadlines or achieving targets, encourage your employee to plan ahead. Tutor them to finish a decent amount of work every day. This will not only help them be prudent for the next day’s work but also avoid exhaustion due to overworking. Being clueless about future tasks or stressed out discourages enthusiasm. This will result in you working with a drained employee who is a victim of the “eating more than they could chew” disorder.

Most importantly maintaining a positive work environment by eliminating unhealthy competition, cliques, negative emotions like depression, jealousy etc. is the start to having a happy employee. Job satisfaction is therefore the inevitable road to employee enthusiasm in the workplace.
