Every individual at the workplace shares a
certain relationship with his fellow workers.
Human beings are not machines who can start
working just at the push of a mere button.
They need people to talk to, discuss ideas with
each other and share their happiness and sor-
Individual cannot work on his own, he needs
people around. If the organisation is all empty,
you will not feel like sitting there and working.
An isolated environment demotivates an indi-
vidual and spreads negativity around. It is
essential that people are comfortable with
each other and work together as a single unit
towards a common goal.
It is important that employees share a
healthy relation with each other at the work
place. Let us find out why employee relations
are important in an organisation:
• There are several issues on which an indi-
vidual cannot take decisions alone. He needs
the guidance and advice of others as well.
Sometimes we might miss out on important
points, but our fellow workers may come out
with a brilliant idea which would help us to
achieve our targets at a much faster rate. Before
implementing any plan, the pros and cons
must be evaluated on an open forum where
every employee has the right to express his
On your own, you will never come to know
where you are going wrong, you need people
who can act as critic and correct you wherever
you are wrong. If you do not enjoy a good
relation with others no one will ever come to
• Work becomes easy if it is shared among
all. A healthy relation with your fellow workers
would ease the work load on you and in turn
increases your productivity. One cannot do
everything on his own.
Responsibilities must be divided among
team members to accomplish the assigned
tasks within the stipulated time frame. If you
have a good rapport with your colleagues, he
will always be eager to assist you in your
assignments making your work easier.
• The organisation becomes a happy place
to work if the employees work together as a
family. An individual tends to lose focus and
concentration if his mind is always clouded
with unnecessary tensions and stress. It has
been observed that if people talk and discuss
things with each other, tensions automatically
evaporate and one feels better. Learn to trust
others, you will feel relaxed.
One doesn t feel like going to office if he
is not in talking terms with the person sitting
next to him. An individual spends around 8-
9 hours in a day at his workplace and practically
it is not possible that one works non stop
without a break. You should have people with
whom you can share your lunch, discuss
movies or go out for a stroll once in a while.
If you fight with everyone, no one will speak
to you and you will be left all alone. It is
important to respect others to expect the same
An individual feels motivated in the company
of others whom he can trust and fall back on
whenever needed. One feels secure and con-
fident and thus delivers his best. It is okay if
you share your secrets with your colleagues
but you should know where to draw the line.
A sense of trust is important.
Healthy employee relations also discourage
conflicts and fights among individuals. People
tend to adjust more and stop finding faults in
each other. Individuals don t waste their time
in meaningless conflicts and disputes, rather
concentrate on their work and strive hard to
perform better. They start treating each other
as friends and try their level best to compro-
mise and make everyone happy.
A healthy employee relation reduces the
problem of absenteeism at the work place.
Individuals are more serious towards their
work and feel like coming to office daily. They
do not take frequent leaves and start enjoying
their work. Employees stop complaining against
each other and give their best
It is wise to share a warm relation with your
fellow workers, because you never know when
you need them. You may need them any time.
They would come to your help only when you
are nice to them. You might need leaves for
some personal reasons; you must have a trusted
colleague who can handle the work on your
behalf. Moreover healthy employee relations
also spread positivity around.
It is essential that employees are comfortable
with each other for better focus and concen-
tration, lesser conflicts and increased produc-
