Do Happy Employees Equal Productive Employees?
There may be a few who are still skeptical about the claims of employee engagement training experts, but they should heed the results of workplace study after workplace study: happy employees excel in their jobs.
How Managers Can Increase Employee Happiness
The question then for you as a manager is how can you positively influence how your employees feel and, as a direct consequence, improve your team’s performance? If you want to create happy employees who are more productive:
Happy employees find their job fulfilling because they identify with its purpose personally and professionally.
While the positive feedback must be authentic and earned, positive leadership is a great way to encourage the right behaviors and a “can-do” attitude.
You will know you are on the right track when employees have a close and trusting relationship with one or more coworkers, feel loyal to their immediate team or work group, and can depend on the other members of their team.
The Bottom Line
Happy employees are productive employees. Make sure you create a work environment where employees want to work hard for each other, for you, and for the business. You will be rewarded with greater levels of advocacy, performance, and retention.
