How to Improve Workplace Human Relations


Every day, millions of people go to work in an office or factory-type environment. In working every day with people, arguments occur and gossip ensues. There are many ways that employees can help to improve human relations in the workplace, and by doing so, they will help the working environment around them. It also will make going to work easier by knowing there will be less stress in the workplace.

  • Smile at everyone on a daily basis. Smiling is an excellent ice breaker as well as a conversation starter. Smiling at others lets them know that you notice they are there and that you care about them.

  • Avoid gossip that is going on. Do not participate in bashing someone who is in the same workplace. By avoiding gossip, you are being considerate of other people's feelings.

  • Help out others whenever possible. This may be something as simple as helping a coworker who gets a flat tire, or just listening to someone's problems. By helping others, you may one day have the favor repaid.

  • Call people by their first name. People enjoy hearing their own named being called, as it lets them know that you care.

  • Monitor what you say around others. If you use foul language or bash certain aspects, such as political views or religions, this may be offensive to others around you. Never discuss politics or religion or lack thereof in the workplace. Pay scales and relationships should never be discussed as well.

  • Establish clarity with those around you. If a manager asks you to do something, make sure that the full instructions are clearly stated.
