Emotions in the Workplace Impact Employees
When we study organizations, we rarely consider how shared emotions can impact employees. New studies have shown that emotions in the workplace do have an impact on employees and on overall work culture. Sigal Barsade, a Wharton management professor, says that what she calls ‘companionate love’, is when colleagues, who are together day in and day out, show that they care about each other’s work and non-work issues, they are careful of each other’s feelings, show compassion, affection, caring and listening when things don’t go well, or when a co-worker needs to talk.
The upshot provides a strong message for managers that says ‘tenderness, compassion, affection and caring matter at work.’ Barsade says management can do something with this by thinking more about the state of emotional culture within their work environment and performing their own self-evaluations about how they treat their own employees, and whether or not they actively display these kinds of emotions to their staff. A culture of companionate love ‘positively correlates with job satisfaction, commitment to the company and accountability for performance’, making it a viable solution to an organization that is experiencing productivity and job satisfaction issues.
