How Do Your Employees Feel About Their Jobs?
An HR professional’s role in a company cannot be understated.
Aside from the hiring, training and payroll aspects of the job, the human resource department plays a direct role in the overall happiness of employees. This happiness can have direct financial implications for a company’s success as well as the health of the US job landscape. In one Gallup study, unhappy workers were found to cost the US between $450-550 billion in lost productivity.
Apart from financial ramifications, studies have shown that being unhappy at work can lead to a myriad of health issues, including loss of sleep, unhealthy weight gain, lowered immune systems, and can even ruin relationships.
