Human Resource: Building Workplace Relationships

Workplace relationships are the tipping point upon which many matters important to managers and HR personnel balance. Having a high-functioning workforce means to have a relationship-centric organization to understand the forces that impact the workplace relationship spectrum.

“Building strong connections with co-workers takes focused effort and practice.”

Relationships are important. We as humans need a personal connection for support, meaning, friendship, and just plain happiness. Building a meaningful relationship within the workplace is very important for employees. They need to exist and they need to build from a solid foundation in order for you to have successfully engaged employees.

Relationships in the workplace are a byproduct of two primary factors: Interactions, how often two people connect and communicate, and Relatedness, or how much two people have in common. Relatedness cannot be discovered without some degree of interaction.

There are several characteristics that make up a good, healthy working relationship:

Trust

It is the foundation of every good relationship. It forms a powerful bond that helps to work and communicate more effectively.

Mutual Respect

It can help with the people you work with and value their input and ideas, and they value yours. Working together can develop solutions based on the collective insight, wisdom, and creativity.

Mindfulness

Taking responsibility for your words and actions.

Welcome Diversity

The people with a good relationship not only accept diverse people and opinions, but they welcome them.

Open Communication

A good relationship depends on open, honest communication. The better and more effective communication can result to have a richer relationship.

Relationships are required for every single business that exists. Having strong relationships leads to better work and also improve an internal organization. Good work relationships are not limited to organizational boundaries. Building positive workplace relationships is vital for career success. Relationships can positively or negatively affect your satisfaction with the job, your ability to advance and gain recognition for your achievements.
