Happy people make more money, have more fun, and better health. And happy workplaces are better too.

Jim Collins, the author of Good to Great explained “the people we interviewed from the good-to-great companies clearly loved what they did largely because they loved who they did it with.” They found that the more team members were encouraged to socialise and interact face-to-face, the more energized they felt, the more energy they had, and the longer they stayed focused on a task.

And, just to push home the point, a recent Guardian article reported that “people who are happier at work are more productive – they are more engaged, more creative, and have better concentration.

That’s 10% for non-complex repetitive tasks, or up to 40-50% in service and creative industries.” And that’s an awful lot in terms of business revenue.
