This year's theme is Happier Together, focusing on what we have in common, rather than what divides us:
March 20 has been established as the annual
International Day of Happiness and all
193 United Nations member states have adopted
a resolution calling for happiness to be
given greater priority.
We live in cynical times, with Social Media at the heart of how messages, opinions, views etc. can be shared virally and often unhealthily, to knock even the most strong-minded off track at times.
But everybody deserves to be happy….and almost everybody on the planet has the compassion to help others achieve this.
Increasingly of course, there is a huge sway (almost an expectation in fact), for the workplace/company/organisation to play a positive role, in helping employees achieve a state of happiness, whilst doing their jobs.
After-all, the benefits for employers, as identified within a recent world-wide study, can be huge:
Happy people are 3 – 10 times more creative.
Happy people at work are 31% more productive.
Happy people have 65% more energy.
Happy employees are more loyal.
Interestingly, however, it is often difficult to identify if employees are happy or not.
In a work environment, with income added into the mix, a disgruntled employee can often remain under the radar, until it’s too late. They leave. Or even create disharmony.
So how do you find out if employees are happy and what to do about it if they’re not?
ANSWER:You ask them
PROBLEM WITH THAT: They may not feel comfortable in admitting what is bothering them…it might be how their line manager interacts with them for example.
With over two decades of experience in supporting our customer’s with building successful Employee Engagement strategies, there is no getting away from the fact that in order to improve both staff engagement and a happier environment, the starting point is to find out how they feel, in order to identify the gap. So we developed a solution for our customers.
