Research: 7 Insights For Happy Employees


Since the late 1990's, the polling organization Gallup has been analysing international employee satisfaction. Sadly, it has been the unsatisfaction factor that has stood out. To date, 25 million employees in 189 different countries have been polled. The latest version completed last year in 2013, gathered information from 230,000 full-time and part-time workers in 142 countries.

The conclusion? 87% of workers worldwide “are emotionally disconnected from their workplaces and less likely to be productive.”

Thankfully, there has been an affirmative response to these sad statistics; many thought leaders are digging away to uncover the necessary ingredients for a happy workplace and happy employees. The infographic was created based off the work of the organization TINYpulse. Their work and passion is to bring about the much needed change in the workplace.

This statement by Ralph Waldo Emerson was true then, and perhaps even more so today: 

“The crowning fortune of a man or woman is to be born to some pursuit which finds him employment and happiness, whether it be to make baskets, or broadswords, or canals, or statues, or songs.”

While the findings in the infographic stem from an employee-centric perspective, significant changes can only happen if the ball is picked up by executives at the leadership end.
