Good Interpersonal Relationships and Communication at the Workplace
- Good interpersonal communication in the workplace drives more staff recognition.
- Constructive feedback and mutual respect between management and workers will be established once there is a well-balanced interpersonal relationship at the workplace.
- A special bond and trust between co-workers with positive feelings towards each other are built in a workplace where interpersonal relationships are up to standard.
- Better understanding and effective communication between co-workers are achieved once the art of interpersonal relationships have been mastered.
- The opportunities for misunderstandings are being limited when workers are confident, happy and positive.
- I have always believed that a happy worker will be a productive worker.

Managers can easily break the moral of co-workers like:
– Criticise and verbally abuse workers in front of others
– Not being open and honest with workers
– Taking credit for someone else’s work
– Not being consistent
– Showing favouritism and not treating everyone equal
– Not giving workers recognition for a job well done
– Not communicating any new developments within the company. Not communicating the strategies, goals and targets with workers on a frequent basis.
