Workplace happiness, Dubai style

Part 2 – How to boost operational efficiency and employees productivity

In the previous blog we touched upon the ways to create a happy workplace with cues from Dubai government’s A Guide to Happiness & Well-being in the Workplace. In this part I will talk about how this can boost operational efficiency and employees’ productivity.

First, a happy workplace boosts employees’ productivity to the maximum. According to a study, happy workers are 13 percent more productive than the ones who are not satisfied with their jobs and workplaces.

Second, it ignites sales and deals. In a happy workplace, healthy competitiveness pushes different teams to achieve better targets at work. This is a win-win situation because you will have higher profitability and they win their rewards.

Third, it highlights corporate image. When you’re moderating a happy workplace, you’ll enhance an organisation’s branding, minimise turnover, and maximise talent acquisitions because simply everyone wants to work for you.

Fourth, it promotes employees’ well-being physically and mentally. A workforce is your capital and maintaining their well-being is a crucial aspect to keep going on. A happy workplace is a stress-free space that does not cause any physical or mental imbalance for employees.

Finally, building a happy workplace is just like building a home. There are ups and downs but what matters is that your workplace gets the best out of each family member.
