…it’s unfair and even dangerous to ask or expect people to act happy when they don’t feel like it, I do believe that it’s important for companies to value the physical and emotional well-being of their workforce.
Furthermore, I believe it’s more important for them to act on what they see and hear from their employees. That is, if they really want to improve it.
Therefore, I welcome the mindfulness and yoga incentives…ones without unrealistic expectations attached.
Provide me with free coffee in the office and I’ll be more alert. But don’t expect a testimonial of gratitude for it. Offer yoga class on Wednesday nights, but don’t monitor my attendance.
