The Pursuit of Happiness in the Workplace

The Pursuit of Happiness in the Workplace | HappyInTheNow | Scoop.it

Forget spreadsheets, swot analysis and risk management, the latest topic on the business school agenda is happiness.

 

Those academics who research the topic prefer to classify it a bit differently, however. “Meaning” is the term used by Lee Newman, dean of innovation and behaviour at IE Business School in Spain. At Michigan Ross in the US, Jane Dutton, university professor of business administration and psychology, says it is about “human flourishing”. Christie Scollon at Singapore Management University describes it as “subjective wellbeing”.



But however they describe it, they all agree that happiness makes good business sense. Moreover, employers and policy makers need to consider the happiness factor if they are to promote strong economies and profitable companies.

Suchitra Mishra's insight:

I have been on the other side of the fence as well for fourteen years and have my pet peeves on recruiters – lack of responsiveness and forthrightness, cookie-cutter approach and more. I am sure you do as well. But I think mutual respect can be key to a great relationship and a successful story here much like in every other relationship. What do you think? Whether you are a recruiter or a job-seeker, I would love to hear back and learn from you.

Thank you Don for sharing this wonderful article!

 

I completely agree that living with purpose is a way of living.  Knowing your why not only infuses us with a life with passion; however is both the gasoline that runs the engine and the steering wheel (compass) that keeps us living in our intentional direction.

Suchitra Mishra's insight:

And how does this all relate to success? There is quite a lot of science behind this (and the study of happiness at work is a rapidly growing trend as it should be) – if you are having fun at work, you are happier. If you are happier, you’ll solve problems faster, be more creative, adapt fastest to change, get appreciated, receive better feedback, get promoted quicker and earn more over the long-term.
