An individual’s personal happiness has a direct impact on productivity levels in the workplace. In fact, it can be one of the most important aspects of enhancing workplace productivity.
A study carried out by the Social Market Foundation found that happy employees are 20% more productive. It’s no wonder why happiness has increasingly become more important in businesses. By doing the things that we love and loving the things that we do, we drive our creativity. A satisfied and happy person can unleash hidden potential as our brains function better and thus, we are able to channel our creative energy more effectively.
How happiness helps increase productivity and success in the workplace.
Believe it or not, happiness directly correlates with our ability to stay engaged at work. It makes us more committed to creating better opportunities for success and therefore feel more inclined to focus on professional duties.
Happy employees are more efficient employees – it’s that simple! They create an environment of positivity around themselves as well as others thus helping to make the workplace more productive. People who have a positive outlook on life will usually reflect that within their work-life too and in doing so, help motivate others. Having empowered employees creates a culture of hard work and loyalty which are huge factors of workplace happiness.
So, by the simple fact of being happy and investing in increasing our personal happiness we inspire the people around us to also be happy which in turn will impact organisational growth. At the end of the day, being happy in the workplace and doing things you enjoy is the ultimate goal.
