You think that your boss and your workplace do not recognize your effort. You do not remember the last time you were given any recognition for your hard work.
- Tell your manager that you like to hear her feedback on your performance at work. Tell your boss that you are looking for frequent meetings with her about your status at work, and it will include the good and the bad parts of the feedback so you would be able to improve what is not perfect.
- Offer to create a recognition team with yourself on top of it. The team will develop the process of recognition for the entire workforce. More than likely, you are not the only one that gets no feedback or recognition.
- Money makes the world go around, remember? Maybe your wage is a little low for your needs, so you are unhappy as a result of money. Try to ask for a raise. You may be surprised by a good increase. Many managers do not give if not asked for a raise.
HOW TO BE HAPPY AT WORK by Annie McKee
Life really is too short to be unhappy at work. Yet far too many of us aren’t even close to being content—much less delighted—with our work or our workplaces. Instead, we are stressed and exhausted. We can’t remember what we used to love about our jobs. Colleagues we trust and respect are few and far between, and half the time it doesn’t even feel safe to be ourselves. All of this is spilling over into our personal lives. We’re having a hard time sleeping or have given up on exercise. Relationships are suffering, too. We feel trapped and struggle to see how things will get better. No one wants to live like this. Still, a lot of us give up and settle for less-than-fulfilling jobs. We tell ourselves that we’re not supposed to be happy at work; that’s for other parts of life. We try to cope by avoiding that bad manager or getting that stubborn, annoying person off the team. We shut down, give less, and fantasize about telling someone off.
