Building good relationships at work has proven to increase happiness and productivity, Saqi Mehta writes at The Muse. Here are a few ways to get to know your co-workers that aren’t as bland as a simple hello.     
  1.  Ask a random question. If you’re having trouble breaking the ice with co-workers, there’s a chance you need to freshen up your conversation starters. Avoid typical topics like work and the weather and instead go for more trivial topics. If you want to play it safe, ask what they did over the weekend.
  2. Get out of the office. Go outside and have your next meeting at a park for a change of scenery.
  3. Celebrate birthdays. This is an easy way to bond with co-workers. Monthly office parties or just taking a minute out of your day to wish your co-worker a happy birthday can help you get to know more people around the office.
