The key to a positive work environment is trust. The boss is in charge of everyone, and it is the boss that does certain things, and the one that everyone turns to for the answers on how to do things or solve problems.

If a boss has given an answer to a question, then it is expected to be the correct answer.

The employees have to put their trust in the boss that everything is going to be fine, and that their boss will take care of them.

Anytime there is a problem, an employee may have to come to their boss to help them with whatever the situation is.

A boss has to be open and easy to communicate with so the employee will feel like they matter.

Employees want to come into work every day, and sit down at a desk or cubicle that has been cleaned and disinfected.

A dusty work desk is not going to make workers happy, especially if they have to clean their desk first before they begin working.

As the boss, the area should be kept clean, and provide things like wipes and hand sanitizer if the workers request it.

When it is time to evaluate workers, the boss should keep things on the positive side.

The truth is, no one wants to be told when they have performed poorly at their job, and the way they are told can really make a big difference.

A boss should not dwell on poor performance, but focus on the positive aspects and give praise for it.
