4 Positive Highlights of the Best Employee Engagement of This Year

No matter what job you have, make the most of it! It’s not just about a financial gain here, but rather about your spiritual nourishment. Think about it. You spend at least 40 hours a week at the workplace, so it’s impossible to get detached from your job. What you do daily will eventually become a part of you, no matter how hard you want to avoid it. So, embrace your job and learn, improve, and spread good vibes every day.

To support this way of looking at your career, we’ve found the best employee engagement of this year! Indulge in their stories and learn how to become a hero at your job.

1. The employee engagement of the Selfless

Speaking of heroes, you can actually become one at the Florida Hospital Medical Center. This is the case of Johanna Castellanos, a nursing assistant at this hospital, who became the “Hero of the Year for 2016” through dedication and good nature. This hospital has a wonderful tradition of certifying the quality work of their employees and, thus, encouraging empathy, commitment, and good deeds.

Johanna is always there for her patients even when she is off duty. She always finds time to deliver her patients’ forgotten belongings on her way to work or home. This kind of selfless actions earned her the local hero title for a year and also our appreciation.

2. The employee engagement of the “Un-disgruntled”

You would think that after leaving her job, one would be full of resentment toward her former company. This is not the case of Vlada Parr, who used to work for the Apple Company. On the contrary, she chose to make the best of her situation and share her positive work experience with her readers. Everybody heard of Apple products, but having excellence as a company goal could be quite overwhelming for its employees. But this hard worker found a way to thrive and be a model employee.

The first advice she highlights is having the proper job attitude. No matter how knowledgeable and well trained you are for your job, your attitude will decide if you are there to stay. Be kind and understanding not only towards your clients but also towards your co-workers. So, this is why spreading good vibes is a prerequisite even for a high position in an international company.

3. The employee engagement of the Accepting

The orange parable that Forbes confessed to us will also bring you closer to understanding why being there for your job can only be beneficial for you. Here’s their story: one of the employees turned out to be discontented with his manager’s decision of promoting someone else instead of him. The manager decided to shed more light on his decision by asking both his employees to buy some oranges for him.

The grumpy worker just carried out this chore without paying attention to details. Meanwhile, the newly promoted man returned with the best oranges he could find at the most accessible price, even though it was his manager who paid for them. After inquiring on how the two men performed their task, the disgruntled employee accepted the idea that his co-worker was better qualified for the higher position. And his conclusion was not based on the other’s better skills, but on the other’s bigger interest in being the perfect employee.

So the lesson that you can extract from this story is that knowledge can be acquired over time. However, motivation can also be lost over time. Stop attending to your own needs and start helping others, cultivate your empathy. Bringing others down and disregarding the people you are surrounded by will only buy you a lonely path. On the contrary, successful people are always interested in encouraging and guiding others in their career choices, and their success makes them happy.

4. The employee engagement of the Learner

WikiHow.com has a come up with a very useful solution in their quest to teach everyone around the globe how to do anything. This article brings up 20 best ways to conduct your job activities perfectly. The author himself focuses more on the right job attitude rather than skills and know-hows, but he also points out a feature that most people usually neglect: learning how to take negative reviews and change them into constructive feedback to your own advantage.

When people are upset, they tend to speak their mind without filtering their words. Take their criticism with an open mind and look for a solution. This is the best and fastest way to improving yourself.

In conclusion, this year’s articles showed us that the image of the perfect employee has changed: it is not about what you know, it’s about how you think. Everyone has access to education, and the internet made the information easy to find, but the most important thing for a joyful work environment is your choice to make it so.

Positive Words Research after two years

Positive Words ResearchI started Positive Words Research at the begging of 2013 when I bought the domain www.PositiveWordsResearch.com on 6 February 2013. I did this because I was researching positive words. Why I was doing that? Because I read the book “The Magic” by Rhonda Byrne and in that book she talks about the magic of gratitude. I love the word magic and it was very familiar to me. But gratitude was not so familiar and after reading the book I wondered “Why is this word gratitude so important?”. So… I searched gratitude in the dictionary to learn more…

Lucky for me that I searched it online using The Free Dictionary, because in that dictionary besides Synonyms and Antonyms there is also a category called Related Words. I clicked on related word of gratitude and then clicked on other related words to the related word… until I found Happiness. I was surprised to see that the word gratitude, after some levels, is connected with Happiness. But my stunning revelation was me becoming aware of the lack of positive words that I had in my vocabulary. I was not even using in my inner thinking most of the positive words that I found then, let alone talking with people with them. I questioned myself: How can i think positive if i do not know positive words? And then I said: I need to self-educate myself. So I started writing on pieces of paper and in Microsoft Word related words for positive words. And I saw that a lot of work needed to be done. So I decided to make a blog and in time to publish posts about positive words and learn the positive words in the process. I called the blog Positive Words Research because this is what I was actually doing: researching positive words.

Inserting the positive words in my awareness gave me the ability to constantly maintain my positive thinking. I feel that the knowing of positive words is like a light shining in my life that can never be turned off. I crossed the bridge to the shining part of life and there is no way back. I feel blessed.

While I was investing time and energy in my passion but also self-development I started dreaming about introducing the study of positive words in the educational systems all around the world. So that other people can have the chance to cross the bridge forever.

At one point I decided to put all the positive words that I found into a List of Positive Words . During two years I updated the list continuously with my own findings but also with the contribution of people all around the world that were commenting sharing what positive words I still need to add in the list.

This project is very rewarding for me. I learned a lot of positive words, much of them that I never knew existed and therefore learned a lot about the positive side of life. I connected with people that are living the life… in happiness and bliss… the words “pure love and light” came into my awareness and I understood them. But also other magic words like: awesomeness, blissfulness, loving-kindness, acceptance, self-love, self-forgiveness, grace and ease, relief, resilience, abundance, prosperity…. each one of them representing a big knowledge. I received a lot of positive feedback, people all around the world blessing me for the work I do and the contribution I bring to the world.

Work that has been done or is in progress related to positive words:

  • increasing the List of Positive Words from 1,100 positive words to more than 2,600 positive words;
  • translating part of the list of positive words in English into other languages than English;
  • working on the first version of the online application that will analyze text based on positive words. Until now I have two applications implemented differently but both still a work-in-progress http://companies-partnership.comeze.com/ and http://iardsoft.com/cuvinte/. This links will not exist anymore once I will upload the application on a new domain www.PositiveWordsResearcher.com. Therefore the online application will be called Positive Words Researcher
  • working on an ebook that I want to call it “Positive Words That Will Enrich Your Mind and Soul” and will contain the full list of positive words, more than 2,600 words and other chapters like: Most beautiful positive words in the world, Positive words you never knew existed.

I was thinking if you have $10 to invest in my projects about positive words The donation page is http://positivewordsresearch.com/donate/ For this donation you will receive the best list of positive words in the world having more than 2,600 positive words, in excel and pdf.

I will continuously keep you posted on the status of the projects, by positing on my blog.

The Hidden Celebrities Of Our Society

“The strongest people are not those who show strength in front of us but those who win battles we know nothing about”

In this epoch, everybody’s is interest is engrossed in cricket matches, football match or award ceremonies or cinema. Cricket fervent fans would cheer for their cricket heroes, respectively celebrities are cheered for their new upcoming movies, however have you ever noticed heroes around you? Can you see anyone helping blind people or an old lady to cross road? You would have even noticed a man sweeping the road everyday, or the traffic police saving puppies from accident everyday, right? These are unsung heroes of our society.

HelpUnsung heroes are the one never who never involved in complains and always looks to complete their work on time, to help everyone willingly and are unselfish. Have you ever appreciated the maid who works in your house, have you appreciated for taking your dirty clothes and wash them? Just imagine life without them. There are many people whose work is not noticed and even not appreciated. People like company employees, office cleansers, after party cleaner, street cleaners regularly work hard and accomplish their task without any demand for appreciation or medals for their acts. There are many institutes who identify and appreciate the unsung heroes. Lowell Milken is one of them; the institute has been working in this field for many years and I am glad we have such institute between us.

Unsung heroes are the people in our society who a make big difference just by their small deed. I would better say they are one weaving the network of our society by their love and affection. Some of them are uneducated yet their deeds matter a lot and it even leaves an indelible mark on people’s heart.

There are many unsung heroes, one of them are the men and women who teach kids on the streets. They teach many life enhancing skills which include pottery, carpentry, even philosophical lessons. They do all this for free and even enjoy the work. They don’t want their skills and expertise to go in waste and so for a better generation, for the generation that has a future they work like anything. Another example of unsung heroes is the men and women who start a movement to collect the garbage and potholes in our society so that our cars can travel smoothly and our streets to stay clean. They even visit the sick and make sure their elders are fit and healthy. They fantasize a society where all are happy and living their life. Unsung heroes are architects of our ideal society.

Just think, have you ever taken some time to appreciate those who have helped us greatly to succeed as well as some time to be grateful for the work they have done for you and your society? This article will surely help you to identify the real unsung heroes of our life. Just look around, there are many heroes you will find who are keen to play their roles and help us being successful while thanking them for being in our lives.

Our family members, especially our mother are most important unsung hero of our life. She used to change our diapers when we were kids; she takes care for our food and many other things. Moreover, a hero can be anyone, even a man doing something simple and reassuring as putting a coat around a little boy’s shoulder to let him know that the world hadn’t ended.

Author Bio: Daniel Clark was connected with Lowell Milken Center for Unsung Heroes and has always worked hard for the betterment of society. In the above post he is asking the reader to identify and acknowledge the heroes around us in our lives.
