“The Happiness Dividend”

June 25, 2011

Interesting post on the Harvard Business Review blog about the importance of happiness in the workplace.

Why is this lack of happiness at work important? Job satisfaction is not only the key predictor of turnover rates, inThe Happiness Advantage, I make the research case for the fact that the single greatest advantage in the modern economy is a happy and engaged workforce. A decade of research proves that happiness raises nearly every business and educational outcome: raising sales by 37%, productivity by 31%, and accuracy on tasks by 19%, as well as a myriad of health and quality of life improvements. Yet even those companies that do take leadership training seriously still ignore the role that happiness plays in leadership effectiveness.

Interesting article and worth reading for your consideration.

Hope it is a great Saturday for you.
