Happy employees are an invaluable asset to any company. They radiate positivity, camaraderie, and tend to stick around for a while. In terms of efficiency, it’s in a company’s best interest to put their best foot forward when it comes to employee happiness.

We partnered with Atomik Research to survey 4,000 workers across the United Kingdom, France, Germany, and the United States to put these myths to rest and expose the truth behind what really makes employees thrive.

Among other results, we found that happy employees are 4% better at customer service, commit 26% fewer clinical errors, demonstrate 79% lower burnout, and have a 61% lower likelihood of leaving than unhappy employees. Check out more of our findings in the infographic below.
