Why happy employees are more engaged and productive
Happiness is essential to workplace productivity. Being happy in your everyday life makes it more easy to engage at work because you do not have other troubling things on your mind. However, being happy at work can make employees more productive overall.
Employees are more engaged when they’re happy in their personal life, and while as an employee you can’t do anything to determine their personal happiness, you can do things to make employees more engaged while they’re at work. Finding ways to make tasks more enjoyable and interesting can help keep employees engaged. Also, allowing employees to take breaks to do something relaxing or fun when tasks get frustrating can help keep employees engaged with their tasks.
Also, if employees actually enjoy what they do then they will be more likely to do it well. Making sure your employees are happy in their job will increase their overall productivity because if they enjoy working for a company they will be more likely to work harder to see that company succeed. However, simply enjoying their job is not always enough; positive reinforcement is necessary to keep employees engaged. When employees continually go above and beyond with no positive reinforcement it can be discouraging, so telling employees when they are doing well and letting them know you appreciate all of the wire they’re doing can be incredibly beneficial in keep employees engaged and productive.
