Happy-Up Your Workplace!
A decade worth of research, some by Harvard University, is proving that happiness breeds success! Yes, happiness preceeds success rather than following it. How does that translate to the workplace? Happy employees lead to higher productivity, lower absenteeism, higher retention, highly effective customer service (consider Zappos) and consequently, a more profitable and successful business.
Every business leader, shareholder and Board member has a vested interest in creating a happiness culture. Thankfully for the U.S. economy, the idea is catching on. Forbes Magazine, CareerBliss, and others have been measuring and tracking the country’s most happy companies. Importantly, boosting and maintaining a happiness levels don’t have to be labor or financially intensive. With our background in organizational structure and interpersonal dynamics, we thought it perfect to create ways to help!
