As the worldwide single institute, the Happiness Research Organisation (www.happiness-research.org) offers with the Happiness Monitoring a scientifically based instrument designed to capture and evaluate subjective well-being and productivity in the company context.
How happy are the employees? And how does this influence their productivity?
That satisfied staff generally work more efficiently is underlined by numerous scientific studies (e.g. Lyubomirsky, King, & Diener, 2005; Oswald, Proto, & Sgroi, 2009; Wright & Cropanzano, 2004, S. 341 ff.; Wright & Staw, 1999).
Answering these questions is tremendously relevant for company success when considering the steadily growing burnout (Mathers & Loncar, 2006, S. 2026) and staff retention rates (Hay Group, 2013) as well as the global entrepreneurial competition.
The Happiness Research Organisation measures two main things: 1. Subjective Well-being and 2. Productivity.
For this purpose, the Happiness Research Organisation collects data on subjective well-being by means of questionnaires recommended by the OECD (OECD, 2013) and furthermore connects it to day-to-day activities by using the Day Reconstruction Method of Nobel price laureate Daniel Kahneman (Kahneman et al. 2004). Staff Productivity is captured by classical economic figures and the staffs’ perspective on their own productivity during their day-to-day work (subjective productivity). In favor of investigating productivity broadly, the Happiness Research Organisation additionally applies a questionnaire, including co-indicators of productivity.
The Happiness Research Organisation collects all this data in line with highest data security guidelines by using an own survey app per web, tablet, and smartphone.
Within the framework of the Happiness Monitoring, the Happiness Research Organisation verifies which effect internal corporate changes or training interventions show on employee subjective well-being and productivity. For this purpose, the Happiness Research Organisation collects these factors on different time-points, complemented by information about classical economic figures. On this data basis, the Happiness Research Organisation as well as the employees mutually reflect whether the intervention had positive consequences, could have those, or even whether interventions were less worth it.
