Happy employees are an invaluable asset to any company. They radiate positivity, camaraderie, and tend to stick around for a while. In terms of efficiency, it’s in companies’ best interest to put their best foot forward when it comes to employee happiness. Happy employees are 4% better at customer service, commit 26% fewer clinical errors, demonstrate 79% lower burnout, and have a 61% lower likelihood of leaving than unhappy employees.
Employees who are elated with their jobs are 40% more likely to say they’re also very productive compared to the average employee. Happiness is a key component to a thriving and engaged company culture.
Shawn Achor, happiness expert, GoodThink Co-Founder and CEO, and TED Talk speaker says, “The greatest competitive advantage in the modern economy is a positive and engaged brain. The human brain at positive has an unfair advantage over that same brain at negative or neutral. When we are positive, we show a 31% increase in productivity.”
The fact of the matter is, when your employees are happy, they do great work. And there are lots of things employers can do to encourage happiness in team members, including peer recognition, emotional support, and highlighting what kind of work I can do from home for remote and hybrid workers.
