PART B_2

A good work atmosphere in an office leads all employees in a company in the most positive way. It helps them feel that they belong to a team where they can work together and help each other. If the work condition is good, employees will always come to work every day and be happy while working together. If employers understand their employees’ needs, they can encourage them to work better and be cheerful while working.
Norwich, a city in New Zealand, has been voted as the number one happiest city to work in. People who work in Norwich say that they really love their jobs. The employees also gained a lot of achievements at work. One of the reasons is that people in that city are very friendly. They always greet and smile at each other when walking down the streets or anywhere in the city. It only shows that a good work condition can improve an employee’s performance and have a positive atmosphere in an office.
