The workplace is where most of us spend the majority of our time and spending eight hours in a small office or cubicle can be daunting. Selling surety bonds is no different.
Sixty-nine percent of employees report that work is a significant source of stress and 41% say they typically feel tense or stressed out during the workday. Fifty-one percent of employees said they were less productive at work as a result of stress (American Psychological Association, 2009).
Surety1 utilizes a modern work environment to cut stress and increase productivity at the same time. Small offices like this can utilize team building experiences including: a single lunch hour where everyone can enjoy lunch together, contests for friendly competition, and annual holiday socials to promote a friendly atmosphere between employees. Surety1’s office also provides stress relief by being a dog friendly office, using seasonal office decoration, and providing a candy dish for all to enjoy. The advantages of having a modern working environment far outweigh any costs and can increase productivity of employees. Including ergonomics into the work environment can also decreases stress and show your employees that you care.
