HR Infographic: What Makes A Happy Worker VS A Sad Worker

There is a lot of discussion and focus on employee happiness and whether happy employees are more productive or harder working. Maybe employers should begin taking a look at their sad or disengaged workers to determine if it is their position or job they are happy performing or not. Many companies use hr training in order for management and others to implement workplace wellness training as sad workers can cause more problems than just low productivity.

Sad workers have a tendency to cause interoffice problems with other coworkers and with management. Workshift is the new type of office work environment. Workshift is essentially mobile office work saving commuting time, providing less interruption to upper level management, happier workers who are engaged in the actual work they are required to handle.

This happy vs sad worker infographic provides extensive data showing how an employees emotional well-being has a direct correlation with their work ethic, not necessarily their work productivity.

  • Over seventy percent of employees are just going through the motions while at work, not fully engaged in the work atmosphere.
  • Eighty-six percent of current office workers desire workshift employment which is work done mobile rather than in the office. Those who workshift are more engaged, have less struggle working with management and coworkers.

Employers face a high turnover rate in employees and may need to become more flexible with employees reporting to the office to work. Company workplace stress training can be used to help employees feel more engaged while at work.
