Can Happiness Fuel Success at Work?

In the workplace, happiness is the interplay of multiple factors:

• Employee engagement
• Employee satisfaction
• Wellbeing
• Purpose
• Meaningful work
• Hope

Their interaction is a powerful force that leaves employees with the belief that good things are possible. Happiness is an outcome of a person left feeling valued and heard. That enjoyment is a characteristic that shapes the totality of a day is key to happiness.

Happiness in the workplace too often is put aside as soft and inmeasurable, therefore, has no true business value. But if you were to ask any unhappy person how up to the challenge they feel in doing challenging work with limited time, you’d get the proverbial eye roll and a chortle of dismay.

That happiness is important to businesses today is like saying profit is important to an organization.

The following Infographic depicts how happiness can fuel success at work. It’s not a pipedream or an overused term. It’s an essential business outcome.

    There’s a more human way to do business.

    In the Social Age, it’s how we engage with customers, collaborators and strategic partners that matters; it’s how we create workplace optimism that sets us apart; it’s how we recruit, retain (and repel) employees that becomes our differentiator. This isn’t a “people first, profits second” movement, but a “profits as a direct result of putting people first” movement.
