At The Carvonis Group (Miami, FL) we are very invested in the happiness of our employees. We truly and genuinely believe that when our employees are happy, they will be more successful. Now you might ask if they’re successful, won’t they be happy? What came first, the chicken or the egg? In our opinion, happiness must come first. Success doesn’t come overnight so we need our employees to pursue happiness along the journey. We’re not the only ones who feel this way. A research paper published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America found that adolescents and young adults who report higher life satisfaction earn significantly higher levels of income later in life.
Happy people are more optimistic – They believe in themselves and their abilities. They are more open to accepting new responsibilities and challenges because they know that once they accomplish the challenge, they are closer to hitting their goals and being successful. An entrepreneur needs to be optimistic to believe his business can be successful.
Happy people are part of the solution – Instead of pointing out problems and expecting someone else to solve them, happy people are excited to accept the challenge. They tend to be more open-minded to think of other options and solutions to fix the problem.
Happy people invest in themselves – Have you ever met a happy person who doesn’t work out, or eat healthy, or read or listen to podcasts, etc? Happy people are always doing something to improve themselves. They know and believe that if you are constantly growing, then happiness will always be around you.
Happy people get better performance reviews – Energy is contagious so happy people are more enjoyable in the workforce. People feel good around them and feel that they can be themselves and not scared to brainstorm or ask for help. This not only helps the individual but also the whole company. Not to mention, happy people are excited and prideful of the work they do so they never do anything just halfway. What company would not want this for their environment?
