The evidence suggests that if we invest in improving happiness of our employees we see significant improvements in every key performance indicator, including employee engagement:
- 43% productivity (Hay Group)
- 33% higher profitability (Gallup)
- 37% increase in sales (Shawn Achor - Harvard)
- 300% more innovative (HBR)
- 51% lower staff turnover (Gallup)
- 66% lower sick leave (Forbes)
- 125% less burnout (HBR)
The difference between engagement and happiness may be a subtle one but it's primarily a question of perspective.
Attempts to make employees more engaged can often sound like a drive to get higher performance out of them – almost like ‘sweating the assets’. If managers are asked to create happy teams who love what they’re doing – it’s more like they’re being asked to ‘build their assets’. To an employee, Happiness feels like it’s more concerned with 'you' not what the firm can 'get from you'.
