What virtually connected the emotional behaviors to work? As a competitive and strained environment being formed, what should be realized and considered as reactions to the continuing change of workplace? According to the report, Working Today: North American employees have intense emotions about their work, and even worse, a large proportion of that emotion is negative. The unique new study demonstrates that, on average, more than half of the employees are holding a negative emotion and a third is intensely negative towards their current job. It is critically important for employers to realize that an ideal work experience could transform contemporary negative emotions into positive emotion according to the study. Five elements including fears and pressure, excessive workload, anxiety about the future, lacking of challenging work experience, insufficient recognition for the level of distribution are counted for the reasons of weak emotions, by which productivity and performance could be diminished simultaneously. The companion survey via internet mentioned in the article shows the emotional descriptions of both employees and employers working for mid-size to large companies in the United States and Canada. Accordingly, there is an enormous gap between employees' current and ideal work experience. ...read more.


"Without strong positive ties to work or the work experience, employees have little incentive to go the distance or deliver consistently top performance." (Donald Lowman, 2003) Refers to the article, just 6% among those who currently feeling strongly positive are looking for a new job or are poised to leave when a new opportunity arises while there are 28% of those who feeling negative. Positive emotions are creating a highly royalty between employers and employees and vise versa. Without the emotional-management, a work environment can become toxic. When workers perform out of fear, loathing or anger, a company usually is not productive. A workplace where emotions run rampant can turn off employees, vendors and customers alike. ( Jenny C. McCune). It is deemed that sometimes emotions are the most significant problem in the workplace. What approach should employers taken in order to reduce negative emotions then? As emotions are such important for working, the most important thing for better results is to create a appropriate environment of work, providing employees ideal work experience. The article includes a survey about what an ideal experience would be look like and feel to employees. ...read more.


Other approaches such like encouraging everyone to take a few minutes to do something uniquely their own to break the tension, or providing a forum for everyone to collect and share their favorite cartoons, jokes, and stories, are all good ideas to create a workplace with fun. Everyone--from the CEO and upper management to part-time employees-would benefit from laughing on the job. People like to go to work when they can expect to have a good time while doing a good job. Although emotional problems cannot be completely eliminated throughout human life, there are still certain ways to adjust them and control them. The article enables us to better understand the connections between emotions and work and well analyses the cause and consequences of it. As negative emotions could be the fatal factor in the way of organizational development, employers should consider it as a critical aspect while trying operate a better organization. For individuals, people should learn to manage their own emotions while working in order to effective productivity and fine performance.
