Well-Being and future workplace trends

A new piece of research highlights the importance of focusing on the well-being of employees to increase productivity and loyalty.

“Happiness works. Happy workers are up to 12% more productive than those that aren’t”.

and suggests that aspects such as supporting flexible working, trusting employees and encouraging openness and sharing are important for their happiness:

“The office can be anywhere … Within the next decade, 60% of office-based employees will regularly be working from home.”

“54% of employees want to be measured by their outputs.”

“Design spaces to encourage ‘bumps’ and discourage ‘interruptions’.”

These findings are inline with other research by Dan Pink, Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi and Sonja Lyubomirsky on the link between happiness, intrinsic motivation, creativity and productivity.
