Why A Joyful Workforce Is A More Productive Workforce

If you hear people emitting peals of laughter at this time of year, or talking animatedly about their plans for the festive season, you might be tempted to think they’re slacking off.

That’s because according to research by Warwick University, allowing employees to experience moments of joy not only makes them harder working, but also more productive. 12% more productive to be exact.
