In the current corporate culture most managers expect their employees to perform outstandingly and keep working that hard on every project given to them.

They do not focus on how employee happiness affects the entire organizational growth. In this article we are going to discuss why every manager should start focusing on employee happiness and satisfaction.

1. Happy Work Environment

Happier employees create an enthusiastic and interesting environment at the workplace. A workplace where employees show up with smiling faces and give their best to their organization is ideal. If focusing on employee happiness can create a great work environment at work, then managers should now start focusing more on employee happiness.

2. Happier Employees – More Motivated

Happy employees are more motivated and tend to take challenges and work hard for the company. On the contrary, unhappy employees can’t take up challenging tasks and tend to leave the job because of dissatisfaction. You may think that hiring other employees would help when these unhappy employees leave, but you can’t deny the fact that experienced employees are important.

3. Increased Organizational Revenue

Unhappy employees can’t find a way to stay happy in an organization. So unintentionally they indulge in nasty office politics and lose their sense of loyalty with the organization. But happy employees do not actually have time for these, they always work hard and help their co-workers to stay motivated which in turn helps increase their productivity. If your employees improve their individual productivity, it is more than helpful to the organizational revenue.

Therefore managers need to understand the importance of employee happiness and focus more on it. And now it’s time for you to think what you can do to keep your employees happy and motivated.
