Benefits of a Happy Worker:-)

Posted by Chris Hill on Tuesday, July 17th, 2012 - 12:29 pm

Companies benefit from engaged, motivated and happy workers. What really excites employees in their companies, and therefore keep companies human resource turnover to a minimum and productivity to a maximum, are organizations that offer more than just high salaries; doing interesting and unique events together outside of work really does make a difference.

Outside recreational and entertainment functions are increasingly becoming a unique benefit companies can offer their workers. These events help keep a team dynamic alive and interesting. Laughter and fun are not just for friends and family, they should be a part of peoples work time too – after all, you spend so much of your time at work and having fond memories and fun reflections is all a good part of building a strong and happy workforce.

Several recent studies have indicated that a happy worker is an underlying key to a company or organizations success:

“The benefits of a psychologically well work force are quite consequential to employers, especially so in our highly troubled economic environment,” Thomas Wright – professor of management at Kansas State University said. “Simply put, psychologically well employees are better performers. Since higher employee performance is inextricably tied to an organization’s bottom line, employee well-being can play a key role in establishing a competitive advantage.”

And how do you achieve these results? Well one way is through ‘playtime’; time spent doing something fun and completely different with your co-workers that fuels the minds need for feel good hormones.

A disengaged employee is an unproductive employee and this costs the North American market hundreds of billions of dollars a year according to a recent Gallop Poll. Gone are the old days of the mean manger theory of bullying and stressing employees to garner productivity and loyalty – the opposite is true.

So give your organization a boost of confidence and strength which directly results in a positive mental outlook.
