Happiness Is The Ultimate Economic Indicator

Happiness Is The Ultimate Economic Indicator | Success Leadership | Scoop.it
One factor that is increasingly being cited as an important economic indicator is happiness. After all, what good is increased production and consumption if the result isn’t increased human satisfaction? Until fairly recently, the subject of happiness was mostly avoided by economists for lack of good ways to measure it; however, in recent years, “happiness economists” have found ways to combine subjective surveys with objective data (on lifespan, income, and education) to yield data with consistent patterns, making a national happiness index a practical reality.

Employee Engagement Myths Debunked

Employee Engagement Myths Debunked | Success Leadership | Scoop.it
Engagement and retention are huge topics right now in HR, and leadership in general. High turnover numbers and epidemically low employee engagement numbers are costing companies in a big way.
more...
Frank J. Papotto, Ph.D.'s curator insight, May 29, 11:01 AM

A key to improving employee engagement is a complete, holistic view of people.  Each of the myths about engagement is based on a misunderstanding of some aspect of the people  involved. These myths don't  recognize that: People are not predominately motivated by money; recognition works  only when people see it as authentic and not manipulative; high-performers are highly motivated by something and its important to know what; new managers are not usually experienced people managers, so their preparation should include relevant training; generalizations about a demographic grouping do not capture all the information about what it takes to engage the people in that group.  One could go on about how trust, appreciation, respect, technical and social support are also effective ways to build engagement because this is what people need or want from their work experience,  but the foundation for taking action to enhance engagement is more than a generalized view of human nature;  a more specific, individualized and nuanced understanding of employees is needed.
