How Behaviour Impacts the Workplace

Positive and negative behaviour can change the office's atmosphere.

By Marcia Smith

A company’s staff will have a substantial impact on the motivation of those around them. Both motivation and de-motivation can often be contagious in a workplace.

Staff who are well motivated and achieve well will set a positive example for others, which can improve motivation by creating a competitive culture. Employees who are warm, friendly and supportive with colleagues are also likely to have a positive impact on motivation, because staff tend to work better in happier environments.
