A happy team is a productive team.
Have you ever been part of an unhappy team?
Chances are, morale and productivity were low, and people were unenthusiastic about their work. There may have been infighting, negativity, and high absenteeism. Work was miserable!
If you're in a management or leadership role, you won't want your team to be like this. This is why it's important to help people to be happy at work, and to help them flourish and thrive in their roles.
Happy people are more productive, more engaged, and more likely to come up with new ideas. They're also more likely to enjoy coming in to work!
This leads to higher performance, increased productivity, lower absenteeism, reduced staff turnover, and a more satisfied and creative team. What's more, people who are happy enjoy better relationships and have a positive attitude. This increases effectiveness, boosts morale, and leads to a great atmosphere within the group.
