5 Great Reasons Why Happiness Increase Productivity

5 Great Reasons Why Happiness Increase Productivity

Happy employees are more effective.

1. Happy employees care more

Happy employees are typically the ones who care about the company and are driven to make it achieve its goals, they are the only ones who even bother to find out these goals in the first place. When employees are happy, they feel invested in the organisation’s goals and are more compelled to work.

Happiness increases productivity because it leads to higher engagement so happy employees are also more present. They pay more attention to the needs of customers and they are more alert of the company’s processes and systems. All these factors come together to bring organisations increased productivity and profitability.

2. Happy employees are more loyal

Happy employees are more also resilient and according to Gallup, are more likely to stay with their employers for the long term. A lowered turnover means less time and money spent on hiring and training new employees as well as fewer breaks or slowdowns in productivity to induct them.

Furthermore, happy employees make it a point to show up to work and do more work. They find it easier to go above and beyond what is expected of them and put in those precious overtime hours.

Keep in mind that appreciation breeds loyalty. A recent survey from Boston Consulting Group has found that most people want just one simple thing from their jobs: appreciation for their work. Who bothers looking for another job when they enjoy the one they have and are appreciated there?

3. Happy employees are healthier

Work-related mental disorders (also known as psychological injuries) not only negatively affect the immune systems of individual employees, but also bleed out the company with costs associated with the frequent and/or long periods away from work that such employees typically have to take.

According to statistics released by workers’ health regulatory body Safe Work Australia, 7,500 Australians claim compensation for work-related mental disorders each year and this sums up to approximately $480 million which is roughly 6% of the total workers’ compensation claims.

Furthermore, workers with severe depression take 20 times more sick days per month. Therefore whereas the health of stressed out employees drains your organisation, happier employees are healthier and thus in turn keep the company in good health and great shape.

4. Happiness breeds like rabbits

Happiness is of a multiplying nature – when watered it can grow all over the entire company. More happy employees means more happy bosses means more happy employees, and the cycle continues.

Employees who find joy in their work easily become shining role models for their co-workers and encourage them to also take joy in their work. Managers who find joy in their jobs also encourage the workers under them to enjoy their work and are less likely to be stereotypically tyrannical.

Happiness increases productivity, because happy employees support one other. When employees have positive attitudes they are more willing to support fellow workers in achieving the company’s goals especially in group projects. Happy employees are also more likely to ask for help when they need it and this is very important for productivity because many employees feel ashamed to ask for support when they need it.
