he evidence is clear: happy workplaces perform better in every way.
Studies have shown:
Workplaces with happy, engaged staff are 22% more profitable
For every 2% increase in how happy employees are, revenue grows by 1%
Investing in great workplaces compared to the standard stock market over the last 25 years would give a 3.5% increase in return
Happy employees miss only 3.9 days of work on average due to sickness each year compared to the 10.7 days missed by disengaged employees
Organisations with the most engaged employees have 26% lower employee turnover and 20% less absenteeism
And it’s true of the public sector, too – for every 96 deaths in a happy and engaged hospital, 103 people die in a hospital where staff are disengaged and unhappy!
