Not something new that if people are happy in their work then they will potentially be more productive.
So ask yourself
What was the last thing you, your boss or department did something to increase morale?
What is regularly being done in your workplace to increase / maintain positivity?
Remember that fad celebrating success at work….when was the last time you did this?
Some replies to this are ‘we don’t have a budget, we’re too busy…..’
If you have 12 minutes today and want to hear, something motivational, funny and with concrete ideas that cost nothing then I would recommend the ted video below.
‘We believe that we should work to be happy, but could that be backwards? In this fast-moving and entertaining talk from TEDxBloomington, psychologist Shawn Achor argues that actually happiness inspires productivity.’
