October is Workplace Politics Awareness Month. Are your co-workers or employees a tight-knit team or does the nature of your work tend to keep everyone confined in their office for most of the day? Either way, this is a great month to get everyone in the office working together.
Host an office party and invite all departments, suggest a team-building exercise, hold a meeting where workplace politics are listed at the top of the agenda. Discussion points could include increasing productivity, communication, and team building. Whichever you choose, be sure that the effects will be felt among your co-workers long after the month is over. Use these quotes as inspiration and make your work environment more productive and pleasant today!
Trust men and they will be true to you; treat them greatly, and they will show themselves great.
