The key to a successful business revolves around focusing on employee happiness as much as customer happiness. When employees feel unhappy and demotivated, their productivity decreases, turnover increases, and the business suffers.
Replacing an employee can cost up to 33% of their annual salary, while unhappy employees cost U.S. companies $550 billion annually. So, employees need to feel happy and accomplished and also be allowed to take pride in their work and to be emotionally agile, positive with their emotions, and mentally healthy.
Happiness was a largely ignored subject before studies and research found that happiness is the biggest contributor to-
- Employee productivity
- Employee retention
- Better performance
- Overall health and well-being
- Positive work culture
Happy employees are the most productive and innovative, and therefore it is vital for businesses to focus on it.
