WHY Science of Happiness at Work TM Matters ?

Are you happy at work? Would you like to be happier at the office?

Recent research by my accrediting organisation, iOpener Institute, a UK-based human asset management research consultancy, has been researching happiness at work globally for the past 6+ years. They have discovered that increased Happiness levels has huge value for employees and managers / Leaders alike.

Their researchers found that…

…Happiness it’s different from job satisfaction and engagement:
“Happiness leads to both of these… but they don’t work the other way round”.

iOpener Institute UK’s ongoing research shows that employees who are happier at work:

 Are 180% more energized
 Are 155% happier in their jobs
 Are 108% more engaged at work
 Are 150% happier with life
 Love their jobs 79% more
 Are 50% more motivated
 Have 40% more confidence
 Achieve their goals 35% more
 Contribute 25% more

Want 25% More Productive Staff?

People who are happiest at work report that they are 47% more focussed and on task than their least happy co workers. In real business productivity terms this equates to your happier staff putting in a massive extra 1.25 days a week, when compared to your unhappiest staff! Now that’s a vital point for organisations looking to do more with less in an increasingly competitive world. Productivity is not something you can force from staff in the “Intellectual age”

Fewer Sick Days Off!

The happiest employees in the UK & US private sectors only take 1.5 days off sick a year compared to an average of 6 days off by the average employee. (In the public sector, the same comparison is 11 and 20 days). The multiplier effect of being unhappy at work is huge.

Happiness leads to… all these positive outcomes, not the other way round.

In short, being happy at work pays handsomely – For everyone.

We know that it pays for HR professionals to understand the factors and elements of the Science of Happiness at Work TM model, in order to better help their clients to achieve greater performance and happiness at work.
