According to a recent Gallup survey of working Americans, about 70% reported being dissatisfied with their jobs. My husband was in that boat, and he recently got a new job. Although there's no guarantee he'll love it, it should be a better environment than his previous place.
However, some people don't have the option of a readily available new job. They are stuck where they're at, sometimes dreading it. But what if that could change?
I had a chance to review Creating a Healthy Work Environment by Cathy Jameson, PhD, where she details how to love work, making it fulfilling and highly functional. The great thing about this guide is that it wasn't geared towards bosses making changes for their employees, but about every employee being able to affect their own work environment.
Although not everyone can make major changes in their work environment, Cathy shows readers how to change what they can affect, including finding fulfillment in work, to make it a positive place. It's easy to read and practical, appropriate for anyone who wants to improve their workplace environment.
