Happiness

Happiness and satisfaction are subjective concepts – while for some of us monetary benefits can be equated with job satisfaction, some might strive for recognition of their hard-work and lose motivation on failing to achieve so.

No matter what the standards are, being content with our careers is crucial for maintaining the ‘work-life’ balance.

Importance Of Happiness At Work

Happy employees are compulsory for a growing business.

A study on organizational success revealed that employees who feel happy in the workplace are 65% more energetic than employees who don’t. They are two times more productive and are more likely to sustain their jobs over a long period of time.

Happiness

Is the ability to not want more. Is expressing gratitude and satisfaction for the present moment, instead of yearning for some future indicator of success.

Working remotely
A 2017 study found that 57% of start-up businesses had at least one member who worked remotely, either from home or wherever they happened to want to work.

An added benefit here is the implied trust and autonomy of allowing staff to work remotely may contribute more to their happiness than dragging them into an office stocked with free coffee and fruit.
