It’s all about creating a virtuous circle.

"There is a strong relationship between employee happiness and a workforce that is productive, creative, and flourishing," he says, pointing to lab studies designed to test creativity after participants have been made more and less happy, which shows creative levels improve when people are happier.

imageMILL's insight:
