What makes us feel happy at work?
A clear organisation with clear goals and expectations of everyone is fundamental to feel good at work and having a sustainable working life.
Clarity at work is important for a sustainable working life
By Jeanette Köster, about 1 minute reading
Clarity can be about goals, tasks, responsibilities, powers and priorities. Like that there is clear communication. With the demands for flexibility and quick actions in today’s working life and many work roles with a lot of personal freedom, clarity becomes even more important.
In the question of what makes us feel good at work and stay long-term, clarity at work has previously been underestimated as a health factor. It is often the importance of one’s own control and influence to be able to control one’s work that is highlighted, but if it is not clear what to do, the benefit of control is not so great.
Expectations and goals
Leadership is a factor that is often talked about, but often more linked to feedback and recognition than clarity. However, clear leadership with clear goals and requirements can even lead to longer sick leave.
If you do not get a clear idea of what your expectations are, it is difficult to do your job well. This means that we may run into the wrong things, double work with colleagues or that it simply becomes a bit too much. It is thus often strongly related to having a manageable workload.
