In today’s fast-moving, hyper-competitive context, competitive advantage is difficult to create and extraordinarily challenging to sustain. Whilst its creation may be found in the domain of strategy, its execution is firmly founded in the heads, hands and hearts of employees.
The benefits of employees engagement in an organisation are well research and acknowledged. The question most organisations face is how to create and sustain engagement. The Business Happiness Canvas provides the answers.
When the happiness quotient within your organisation’s employee increases, the consequences spill over in every corner of the business. Customers sense the joy and want to work with you. Other employees learn of the happiness endemic within the walls of the buildings and want to join. Those employees within the business give of their best because they are happy to do so. Ideas are put forward and innovation is enabled. The business’ performance and results inherently improve.
Employee engagement isn’t achieved through a quarterly team build or an annual conference. It is sustained through a careful and systematic process of finding out what happiness looks like in your organisation’s context, identifying champions to share their passion for well-being within your business, and nurturing those champions to make a real difference to the happiness of employees within it.
