The Chief Happiness Officer, Alexander Kjerulf, has dedicated his professional life to helping every workplace achieve an environment and culture in which employee grow and thrive. According to Alexander’s research and proven cases, happiness at work relies on two things: our results and our personal relations.
This reinforces the findings of researchers like Teresa Amabile who show the most engaged employees are those who feel like they’re making progress in their work – those who see results.
Personal relationships at work, however, are often glossed over. Gallup’s employee engagement instrument, the Gallup Q12, gives this subject the proper weight by asking “Do you have a best friend at work?” With only 12 questions in their survey, making friendships at work a key measure of employee engagement is truly telling.
But in today’s dramatically distributed workplaces and team structures, it can be hard to form those relationships. When members of your team may be located Midland, Manchester, Mumbai, Manama, and Munich, it becomes exponentially more difficult to build the critically necessary relationships of trust and respect that underpin team and organization success.
