Once upon a time, there was a small boy who lived in a village who has grown into a happy, confident and capable young man and a corporate rising star. Throughout his life as a successful corporate figure he also found a perfect mate, have kids, make tons of money, accumulate money more than he could spend, eat good food, drink good wine, could travel around the world, enjoy happy time with family and friends until an age ripe enough to retire. Like the man in the story, you would think that some people have always been happy.
Most people don’t have that story in most workplace. “Happily ever after” doesn’t happen after your successful job interview. If you don’t like your job, you are not alone.
According to a massive report released by Gallup, the Washington D.C.-based organisation who gathered information from 230,000 full-time and part-time workers in 142 countries, it was revealed that there are twice the number as many unhappy workers in the world as there are satisfied workers who love their jobs.
Only 13% of workers feel satisfied by their jobs. That means they feel a sense of passion for their works and they spend their days driving creative innovation and moving their company forward.
To us, it’s a critical situation because if most people who are in the workforce are not happy, chances are, they will continue to suffer misery until weekend, or until year end annual holiday trip, or until retirement or until they get used to it. Since the majority of people spend much of their lives at work, it is critically important to gain a solid understanding of the role that a company can take in shaping happiness at workplaces.
How well can one perform if they have pains in the neck, shoulders, back and consistent headache or disturbed with own emotional and stress issues at work or home? Just think about how much of our working days are wasted by lack of focus, stress and general negativity.
It is no secret that companies such as Google, Facebook, Intel, Twitter and many more have the best company environments people ever work in. Every company longs for a culture that could attract top talent and lead to happy employees and it’s no surprise that such companies are termed as“Forward-Thinking company” because of their wisdom to see the future of strength that keep a company going strong.
