Did you know – India ranked a dismal 133 (out of 156 countries) in the 2018 United Nations World Happiness Report. What makes it worse is that it dropped 11 places from last year. Surprisingly, most of the Asian countries including Pakistan (75), China (86) and Bangladesh (115) are ahead of India.
Happiness is a gift that keeps giving! Yet, most of us are guilty of taking it for granted. Routinely sacrificing it on the altar of perceived success and short-term results.A meta-analysis of over 200 studies on happiness, covering 2,75,000 people from across the world, indicates ‘Happiness is not the outcome of success, but a precursor.’
In the workplace, the benefits of happiness are immense. Happy employees are more creative, demonstrate higher productivity, make better leaders, generate higher revenues and more likely to get promoted. Yet, workplace happiness is often considered to be a paradox.
