workplace happiness tips the scales

Many of us spend the majority of our waking hours – tens of thousands of hours in our lifetime – at a job where we produce, manage, service, and labor, for our livelihood. It serves our self and our company to make sure we are happy in our work. However, the scales often tip between working to live and living to work. What determines how the scales tip?

Gallup’s, State of the American Workplace Report reveals that, “70% of American workers are “not engaged” or “actively disengaged” in their work, meaning they are emotionally disconnected from their workplaces and less likely to be productive.”

Prolonged stress in the workplace affects both our physical and emotional health – and just as stress takes increasing toll on an individual who is disconnected from himself, challenges take toll on businesses that are disconnected from its employees. This is why stress management is so important for a company’s bottom line and growth. An employee’s health and happiness is directly linked to how engaged they are which affects work behavior, attendance and performance. Employee engagement powerfully tips the scales between a sustainably successful company and one that is not.

There’s a silver lining to the fact that stress is causing all this drama. It is that we can see chronic stress as a gateway to disease. With this perspective, we can approach health initiatives in a smart and focused way by making stress management one of the top priorities in our work culture. We can make true gains in balancing the health, wellness, and engagement of our employees.

Providing self-care tools, education, motivation, and a company culture that supports elements of effective stress and wellness management, allows employees to take personal responsibility for their happiness in the workplace.
