Does work make you happy every day? A 2013 Gallup poll discovered that only 13% of us feel warm fuzzies each and every day when we punch in. Which means a majority of us spend our days maybe wanting to punch out someone at our workplace. How do we fill this void of happiness at work?
Sometimes the simplest advice is the best. Recently I discover a piece from Inc.com titles “16 Ways to Create Your Own Happiness at Work.” Many of 16 suggestions are pretty obvious, but they are worth reviewing. The list is compiled from data after testing the EQ (Emotional Intelligence) of over a million people. This is a great document to share and review with your workgroup.
Remember behind every happy staff is a happy leader. By making work fun for your staff, you will create a more innovative, healthy and happy workplace.
If this doesn’t work, you could always recruit some animals to make it more fun.
