You may find it very ironical.
According to the World Happiness Report, Denmark is the happiest country in the world.
However, it is not rated the lowest in suicide rates.
Researchers have studied the reason behind the fact that the happiest country is not the lowest in suicide rates.
They came out with a very surprising revelation.
“In a happy environment, it's impossible to remain unhappy”
Therefore, if you create a Happy Environment in an Organization, the non-happy employees have two choices: quit or get engaged.
Every organization understands the importance of happiness at work.
They offer the best pay in the market, luxurious workplace, special arrangements for fun activities, gym, various insurance benefits like life & health insurance, assistance with car & home loans, etc.
Of course, this adds to the comfort of your employees, but not to their happiness.
As per the Harvard Happiness study, 80% of employees are still unhappy at work. Even employers are unsatisfied with the low levels of productivity despite the perks mentioned above.
The core reason is that our employees do not enjoy the work assigned to them.
According to one study, if employees enjoy the task assigned to them, their productivity levels will increase by 500%.
Let’s see how.
Employees who enjoy their work will be hungry for the happiness they derive from the work.
Hence to fulfill this hunger, they change the definition of productivity.
For them, productivity will now mean – exceeding their own capacity and capabilities.
This is when real happiness emerges and happiness at workplace makes business sense.
As a result, it fuels them to be even more creative next time.
Because next time, the same level of work will not give the same happiness.
They try to break their own records to derive more real happiness.
This cycle continues.
For them, work will be like playing a game.
Seeing these happy employees, the not-so-happy ones will either join them or quit.
A employee happiness culture will be established.
But how do you build this employee happiness culture ?
Is there a science behind this ?
