5 Ways Red Spark Increases Productivity By Practicing Gratitude
It may often be overlooked, but gratitude in the workplace not only ups those feel-good emotions, it plays a big role in productivity too. At Red Spark, expressing our gratitude allows us to come to work each day with a mindset to push harder than the day before, to value our colleagues and every opportunity we’re given, and to keep motivation running strong to build the future of digital advertising. When you walk through our doors, you’ll meet a team of spirited trailblazers and innovators who cultivate an attitude of gratitude on a daily basis. Take a look at how gratitude increases our productivity here at Red Spark:
We Tell Each Other How We Feel
Thanking and interacting with our coworkers on a regular basis sets the bar and establishes the tone for a supportive, friendly environment. Whether it’s giving a company-wide shout out to someone for encompassing one of our six core values or shooting some pool in the office at the end of a long day, we’re immersed in creating positive relationships that strengthen our organization.
We Don’t Hold Back
Feeling grateful keeps you aligned with positivity, leaving us feeling free to utilize our creative minds without holding back reservations. Sometimes we need to experiment, and when we embrace challenges, knowing our determination does not go unnoticed pushes us to work even harder and pivot at a moment’s notice.
We Embrace Opportunity
Nobody’s perfect and sometimes you fail, but when you feel appreciated, those mistakes become a catalyst for improvement. When we think about what we’re grateful for, whether it’s having a fully-stocked kitchen or achieving a career goal, it allows us to see all possibilities – good and bad – as an opportunity to learn and grow.
We Work As A Team
Showing gratitude is proven to increase our wellness and overall being. Our emotions affect our sleep habits, metabolism, and stress levels, all of which directly impact our work. Coming to work refreshed and energized is crucial to productivity. There’s no better way to stay focused and immersed in our company than with a hackathon. When we’re able to open our minds and combine our knowledge with every team, feeling grateful allows us to move full steam ahead and ignite innovation with a “we’re in this together” mentality.
We Share The Love
It’s not only receiving thanks that can boost productivity, but giving thanks as well. Whether it’s hitting the streets for a day of community service or holding a #SparkGiving drive to collect educational crafts for our friends at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, taking the time to help and show our appreciation of others outside the office increases our energy, engagement, and exploration.
