According to Statistics, employees are more engaged if they are happy at work and that's why more organizations are focusing on how the different department in the company can be more relaxing, satisfying and suitable to everyone whether it's about the salary, benefits or facility especially right now that millennials is playing a big part in the organization and will be the powerful source of manpower and can command because of the demand.
A 2013 Gallup study, which reported data from more than 180 million people, found that just 13% of us consider ourselves to be “happily engaged at work.” Those who do rate themselves as happy are 36% more motivated, six times more energized, and twice as productive as their unhappy counterparts.
The good news is that just 50% of happiness is influenced by genetics while the rest is up to you. Meaning, we can choose whether to be happy at work or not anyway, happiness depends on the person, it's a state of mind. You have a choice to be happy and well, it depends on the mindset of the individual.
When it comes to making yourself happy, you need to learn what works for you. Once you discover this, everything else tends to fall into place. And making yourself happy doesn’t just improve your performance; it’s also good for your health which is actually everyone's goal, to stay healthy especially in the Philippines where negative news from politics or traffic is actually, we don't have any control.
