On October 1, A Human Workplace became part of Results Washington which works to make government more responsive, data-driven and human-centered. As a Results Washington program, we are excited to offer a growing menu of services and resources to state agencies to help them create workplaces where humanity is highly regarded and supported. Then great value can be delivered to all Washingtonians and public service will be deeply gratifying. Interested in learning more? Let’s talk! Email me at renee.smith@gov.wa.gov to set up a time.

It's time to decrease fear and increase love at work.

 

After all, we are people, working with people, serving people. We are not cogs or machines or objects or even resources. We are human. And we humans are at our best when we are psychologically safe. This basic acceptance, respect, and sense of belonging is a state of love, one of two primary human emotional conditions. The other is fear, which brings on rejection, indifference, alienation, worry, withdrawal, anger, uncertainty. 

When we feel loved, cared for, and respected, we settle in. We feel safe, committed, and at ease to be ourselves. And then we humans do incredible things...

We serve, we invent, we collaborate. We solve, we contribute, we improve. 

We all fundamentally want to know what we are doing matters. Building a loving, human-centered workplace creates the conditions to give and be and do our very best.

Why wouldn't we make work more human?
