is a happy staff a productive staff

1. As long as workers experience their labor as meaningful, progress is often followed by joy and excitement about the work. “This time it looks good! I feel more positive about this project and my work than I’ve felt in a long time,” one programmer wrote after she’d completed a small but difficult task. This kind of rich inner work life improves performance, which further supports inner work life — a positive spiral.

how does happniess effect the work place

1. Supporting Focus

According to Gensler’s 2013 Workplace Survey, people spend 53 percent of their time at work doing tasks that involves concentration and focus. And when people are lost in the “zone” focused on a single task they tend to be happy. For the past three years, a Harvard University researcher has been tracking happiness via a smart phone app. The most compelling finding of the study—which lets people report how they feel in real time—is that we're happiest when we're lost in what we're doing, when we’re "in the zone." Conversely, we become less happy when our minds wander.

why poeple are unhappy at work

1. Every year since 1987, the Board has run a job satisfaction survey. Nearly three decades ago, 61.1% of workers said they liked their jobs. That number has slid over time, reaching an all-time low in 2010 following the Great Recession, when only 42.6% of workers said they were satisfied in their jobs. It has been ticking back up since then but rose only .4% since last year.

what does it mean to be happy at work

1. Happiness is largely a choice. I can hear many of you arguing with me, but it's true. You can choose to be happy at work. Sound simple? Yes. But, simplicity is often profoundly difficult to put into action. I wish all of you had the best employer in the world, but, face it, you may not.

So, think positively about your work. Dwell on the aspects of your work you like. Avoid negative people and gossip. Find coworkers you like and enjoy and spend your time with them. Your choices at work largely define your experience. You can choose to be happy at work.
