Why A Joyful Workforce Is A More Productive Workforce

If you hear people emitting peals of laughter at this time of year, or talking animatedly about their plans for the festive season, you might be tempted to think they’re slacking off. In reality, your joyful employees are also most likely to be your best performing employees. That’s because according to research by Warwick University, allowing employees to experience moments of joy not only makes them harder working, but also more productive. 12% more productive to be exact. The reason joyful employees are so much more productive is because when we’re feeling joyful our brain releases chemicals that suppress the part of our brain that’s constantly preoccupied with worrying, significantly boosting our capacity for creative thinking and problem solving.
