I am a manager of a major firm, I realize the need to keep moral up. I know my employees will be more productive if they remain happy. This is why I am always taking suggestions for improvements in the office. I have to admit that I can't take all the suggestions and make them happen.
Nonetheless, I do everything in my power to negotiate or find ways to make a situation better. Lately, one of the biggest complaints has been with our break room. Right now, we have a small area with a icebox, microwave, a sink and many tables and chairs.
We also have a small tv for the employees to watch during lunch. . .The employees have been complaining about the microwave and refrigerator that are old and do not operate really well. Apparently, some of the employee's lunches has gone bad due to the icebox's temperature control being off.
I called the management section and asked what we could do about this situation. They informed me we did have some funds in the business budget to allow me to buy a few things for the break area. I started to search around Sears and Best Buy for a new refrigerator and microwave. I ended up going to Wal-Mart for the microwave because I knew I could get the best deal. .
.Then I went to Sears for the new icebox. I received such a great deal on both items that I had a lot of money left over. Before I left Sears, I browsed the HDTV area.
I was astounded at how low the prices were for the smaller HDTVs available. I immediately thought how much my staff would love to have an HDTV as part of their break area. However, then I remembered you needed a cable or satellite provider to furnish you with the service for the high quality channels.
I was talking to the sales person and he educated me that I could buy an antenna that would give me the channels I was wondering about without a monthly expenditure. . .I went home, checked into the antenna, and found out it also didn't cost much to acquire. I found an antenna for indoor use, which would be perfect for our office. I bought the antenna and then went to Sears to buy the HDTV.
I could hardly wait for my employees to see the remodeling job in the break room. As soon as everything arrived, I asked the delivery guys to come after hours so no one would see it. After they put everything where it belonged, the HDTV was perfect in making the area complete. When my staff came in that Monday, they just about fell over when they saw the new appliances. My employees are happy and so much more committed to their jobs now. so I am a very proud!.
