A lively work place can do ‘wonders’

London, Nov. 27 (Reuters): David Brent’s much-ridiculed dance in The Office may not have done much to enhance his status as a manager but a lively work environment can do wonders to enhance job satisfaction, according to a survey today.

Research conducted by Microsoft and the non-profit organisation the Work Foundation indicated that a majority of British workers felt their office resembled a “graveyard”.

Only 11 per cent said their office was a “creative environment”, while a third labelled their workplace uninspiring.

Nearly two-thirds cited friendly colleagues as a top thing they looked for in a job, showing that the social pull of an office environment was a key element in work satisfaction, the research said.

The survey was carried out among 1,081 office workers across Britain.
