It is important that whatever job you end up doing for the rest of your life, you enjoy. In order to fully enjoy where you work, there must be a healthy work environment. A healthy work environment allows employees to not only enjoy themselves while they are getting the job done, but to also feel comfortable in their surroundings on a daily basis. A company with happy employees is a successful company.
With a healthy work environment, it is most important to make sure that you have fun. Not all the bits and pieces of a job are fun, but it is important to look at the bright side and make the most of any situation that you are faced in the workplace. Having fun in the workplace builds a social, laid back environment.

If employees have a positive attitude toward the company, it will show through their work.
