Recently, I was assigned to report on the common abuses taking place in our workstation. It took me sometime to figure out what to do. To be caught in between two conflicting thoughts was not easy. It was either cover up for your work friends, or be loyal to the company' whether to tell or not to tell.
Defining and addressing the problems greatly affecting work colleagues are not an easy task, especially when personal interests are at stake. Problems are inevitable part of the workplace whether it has something to do with organizational policies, interpersonal conflicts or employer-employee relations.
An unpleasant workplace can be a cause of major stress and unhappiness for workers. In addition to making the workweek unbearable, the inevitable thought of Saturday creeping closer can certainly follow stressed workers home over the weekend and ruin relaxation time.
An organization to be efficient, problems must not be ignored, but solved and an effective solution is found and implemented so that they do not recur. Finding the easiest solutions are not the answers to the problems in the workstation, but getting to the root of the issue because a minor problem could be the first sign of a major crisis.
