Study after study shows that employees who are happier and more engaged perform better.

This paper from The Kings Fund concluded there was a link between employee engagement and job performance.

202% improved performance in companies with engaged employees - Quote from Gallup
Employee disengagement costs the UK £340 billion annually - Quote from Hay Group

BOOST EMPLOYEE ENGAGEMENT

Engaged people statistically perform better. Statistically they are:

  • More creative
  • More dedicated to your organisations vision and mission
  • More likely to deliver outstanding results for you and your customers

ATTRACT & RETAIN TALENT

Studies have found a strong link between staff turnover and engagement.

Data shows that per standard deviation of engagement increase, staff turnover falls by nearly a full percentage point.

67% lower turnover in companies with engaged employees - Quote from Gallup

The Happiness Index is great because it gives us actionable feedback that improves our employees' work life. By doing this we can attract better talent to NOVOS as they know we are always prioritising our employees which [we think] is a very attractive quality to any workplace.

Happy employees take 10x fewer sick days - Quote from Wall Street Journal

REDUCE EMPLOYEE ABSENTEEISM

Studies show that wellbeing and happiness are “critical factors” in explaining absenteeism.

Mental health and burnout are increasing problems for HR and People teams… we can help.

FUTURE-PROOF CONSCIOUSLY

Even if you’re not going to go down the path of b corps certification, there’s no doubt that more ethical, sustainable business practices are the future.

Research has shown that more than six in ten younger consumers closely consider a company’s ethical values and authenticity before buying their products.

Over 3,500 Certified B Corporations in 70 countries - Quote from B Corporations
More often than not it is the workforce that will have first-hand knowledge about how the company is performing - Quote from Sir Jonathan Thompson, CEO at Financial reporting Council

IT'S THE LAW

Many UK businesses are subject to reporting requirements around employee engagement.

Businesses are required to include information around how they engaged with their people and utilised their employees interests in their Director’s reports.

INCREASE PRODUCTIVITY

Let’s look at some studies that link happiness to productivity.

One study, conducted within a call centre, shows a number of impacts. These included the number of calls made, how closely employees stuck to their workflow and how many calls were converted to sales.

Happy employees are 13% more productive - Quote from Oxford University Saïd Business School
Companies with high engagement have 10% higher customer ratings - Quote from Gallup

BOOST CUSTOMER SATISFACTION

In a healthcare setting there is a strong link between patient/customer satisfaction and employee engagement.

Staff feel more engaged when they’re able to give better care and they give better care when they’re more engaged - it’s a cycle. The same is true for customers of all kinds. No matter what business you’re in.

It’s vital to us that we do things the right way and build an environment where everyone feels valued, listened to, and has the opportunity to share their views on how we make things better.

IMPROVE PROFITS

Alex Edmans, Professor of Finance at London Business School, has studied the performance of companies who invest in their workforce.

His research found that over 28 years, these happier companies had stock returns that beat their peers by 2.3-3.8% per year, or 89-184% cumulative.

Happy companies performed better on the stock market by 2.3-3.8% - Quote from Grow the Pie
80% of employees would work more hours and 60% would take a pay cut to work for an empathetic employer - Quote from Businesssolver

IT'S RIGHT FOR YOUR PEOPLE

Let’s face it, you want your people to be happy and engaged, and they want to be happy and engaged. It’s a win-win situation.

We spend about a third of our lives at work, for the average person that’s more than 90,000 hours. Why not make them as happy as possible?
