Dale Carnegie, the famous American writer, used to say that people rarely succeed, unless they are having fun in what they are doing. Future experiments showed he was onto something 🙂 Turning frowns upside down seems to generate more work effort and engagement.
Happiness, scientifically speaking
Research says that happiness and productivity go hand in hand. This bond is deep and has plenty of implications for people working together. A recent report from the University of Warwick shows that when employees are happy, they’re 12% more productive. When sad, their productivity drops by 10%. And the news doesn’t stop here.
Happiness turns coworkers into more effective collaborators, and optimism enables the brain to perceive more possibilities and be more efficient. This is when out-of-the-box thoughts reach the surface. Even helping out someone can boost happiness. From a business point of view, these facts speak volumes about profitability and should make all companies eager to keep teams happy at work.
But what truly makes and keeps employees happy? Recognition, benefits, perks, stimulating work environments surely are nice, but there’s also something else. A not-so-secret ingredient.
