I work in an environment where silence is more..People feel not a motivating or exciting environment..
I have newly joined this office and I also get this feeling some times. But being the BU HR for this unit, I feel I can surely make a difference in bringing a change in this environment.
Can you suggest me some ways to make the work place exciting in cost effective ways??
I am visualizing a change where all employees of this organization wish to come to this unit becoz of its energetic environment.. Please help..
