The Happy VS. Unhappy Employee

The definition of a happy employee is somebody who loves what they do and has a love for the place where they are working.

The reality of the fact is that most people are in the mindset where they dread the thought of getting out of bed in the morning and making the long trek to work. This is so widespread that it is even referenced in popular culture by means of film, television and Music.

Generally speaking, people who are good at their job are also the ones that enjoy their job and are happy employees.

Happy employees can raise the productivity level of the company they work for and so doing attract other happy employees to work at the company.

Unhappy people tend to put in minimal effort, barely enough to not get fired. This can have the effect of sabotaging the company (knowing or unknowingly) and challenge the very life of the company itself by creating a negative and slack work-environment.

When people are happy at work they tend to work with a positive attitude and be more invested in the company’s goals and successes. They are more engaged in the company’s working activities, and alert of the company’s systems and workings.

The result of this combination of Happiness and Engagement is that they come together to bring about Productivity and Profitability.

Happy employees tend to take more calculated risks and innovate in their role. They seize the opportunity available to excel in the company. They create a supportive atmosphere and learn from their mistakes. They encourage team members to also learn from these experiences as well.

In general, Happy employees are 12% more productive as was proven during a 12-week study of 700 participants.

Happy employees make better collaborators in the work environment as they are working towards, and share a common goal.

Companies with Happy employees generally outperform their competitors by 20%.

Happy salespeople make up to 37% more sales. Happy Employees take 10x fewer sick days than those who are not happy.

Happy people show up early and do more work, they find it easier to go beyond office hours and the strict job description.

Happy managers, in turn, encourage happy staff and create a pleasant, supportive work environment.

In general, Happy people are healthier both mentally and physically. Work-related mental disorders bleed the company by staff taking a large amount of time off, potentially dampening the mood in the office and have a knock-on effect by creating discomfort and heavy emotions among coworkers.

The staff that suffer under these work-related stress disorders potentially take 10x more sick days per year than their coworkers. This drains company funds, time and resources by affecting the other people in the office.

Happiness spreads. Happy people are generally role models for others, and their positive emotions have the effect of Invigorating the others in the office. The brain works better when in a positive state as was shown by Shawn Anchor in his ‘The Happiness Advantage’ programs.
