Employee happiness is something that every dedicated leader wants for their organization. However, when it comes to putting in the resources to revamp your internal processes or to build an employer branding strategy from scratch, it may be difficult to justify the investment. The results of your hard work to create a happier workplace don’t appear overnight and you might find yourself putting it off because you need to focus on “priorities”, such as this month’s customer satisfaction numbers and sales figures.
I am a big believer in the famous Confucius quote: “Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.” And I dare to say that most people wish they loved their jobs so much that work wouldn’t actually feel like, well, work. Instead, work would be something that they enjoy, something that they look forward to, and something that they feel passionate about. Something, that makes them happy.
