Research shows that happy employees lead to high performance. Study after study shows that happier employees are more engaged, more motivated, innovate, give better customer service, play more effective roles in teams and make better leaders.
If you invested $100 of stock in a company listed as a ‘Great Place to Work’ in 1998, by 2008 your investment was worth $266. Compare that to a benchmark of comparable companies that didn’t make the ‘Great Place to Work’ list, that $100 would have only been worth $180. That’s a 2.1x higher return on your investment.
Happiness is worth it. Big savings can be made for happy companies through lower staff absence, talent retention and productivity. Calculate the savings for a happy organization.

Backed by science
Based on Robust Science
The Happiness at Work Survey is based on a model of wellbeing developed for the UK Government Office of Science’s “Foresight Programme”. The model recognises that happiness and wellbeing are influenced by, and influence, multiple interconnecting factors. In a work context these factors include the organization system, the personal resources that employees bring to work as well as how well they are able to carry out their jobs and their experiences at work. It is through a better understanding of these interconnections that individuals and organizations can identify the changes that will create a happier and more productive workplace.
