Besides all the perks that we work hard for, getting to know and be friends with your colleagues is also another perk. Invite your colleagues to lunch or have a catch up over coffee on the weekend..you will feel less lonely and might enjoy being at work.
- Speak up
If there is some reason why you aren’t happy at work (workload, working hours…), it may be the time that you should talk to your employer. In the end, your employer want you to be happy so you can be productive at work.
