A workforce typically has people with different personalities, quirks, goals, skills, and achievements. While diversity is a good thing, for the most part, those differences can become grounds for clashes in the workplace.

“There is little success where there is little laughter.” – Andrew Carnegie

Despite the inevitable differences your workforce will have, you can maintain peace between them and create a productive work environment. Here are 4 ways to ensure harmony among your employees:

Practice and encourage showing gratitude

Gratitude makes people happy and it’s an easy way to promote peace among employees. When you lead by example in saying thank you to people in your workforce, even for little things like opening a door for you, others will follow in your footsteps and practise showing gratitude as well. Offering rewards, such as a bonus or a day off is another way you can show gratitude to employees when they perform well.

You can embed it in your company’s culture so it becomes an inherent part of your workers’ daily lives at work. They are more likely to appreciate each other when everyone is shown appreciation for the things they do. 

Create a team environment

In any workplace, collaborations are inevitable, whether it’s because of a project requiring teamwork or diverse ideas. There are many benefits of teamwork, including employees getting to know each other better.

This helps them get along and learn how to interact with each other in a friendly manner. Besides having employees work together on certain projects, you can create a team environment by holding regular meetings that include everyone and opening the floor for anyone to air their opinions and suggestions.   

Socialize beyond the workplace

Even though your best efforts at creating harmony in your workforce should be focused within the work environment, it’s also good to expand beyond the office walls. For example, you can have end-of-year parties where employees can socialize and interact about anything other than work.

Getting this time away from work gives them a chance to relax and enjoy themselves. Free from the work environment, they’ll have an opportunity to get to know each other better and form friendships that will in turn lead to good work relationships.

Have an open-door policy

Encouraging your workforce to come to you whenever they have issues troubling them is a good way to keep the peace. It helps you become aware of any problems between coworkers early on so you can solve them before they escalate into bigger issues.

Leaving your door open also helps your employees feel free around you, which contributes to creating a good work environment where everyone is presenting a united front.   

“Create the kind of workplace and company culture that will attract great talent. If you hire brilliant people, they will make work feel more like play.” – Richard Branson
