There are many factors that contribute to efficiency in the workplace. A professional environment, uplifting ambiance, healthy work culture, good communication between the employees and bosses and job security. But one of the biggest factors that influence productivity in a workplace is friendliness and frankness in the environment. Be it because of just one individual or everyone; when people are friendly towards each other, the hostility factor is eliminated. Consequential to which, every individual is put in a lighter mood, and everyone enjoys doing their work.
This is why having at least one individual who has the ability to make people smile, regardless of how tough the situation is at a workplace, is quite important. Not only do they make the environment friendly, but they also have the power to make people listen to them and get messages delivered across the team.

He is funny, and extremely passionate, aiming at “ensuring that each parent returns home safely, for their loved ones, who are the most important.”
