After a study named millennials the happiest generation in the workplace, Matt Vella, Managing Director at Sales and marketing firm Venture 100, revealed his strategies for keeping morale high.
According to a survey conducted by recruitment firm Robert Half, the millennial generation are the happiest workers. The research concluded that just 8% of 18-34-year olds feel that they are unhappy at work, which is less than half of those reported to be unhappy at work between 35-49 years old.
The millennial generation is more innovative and eager to try new things to stay challenged, which will go far to contributing to their level of happiness at work. Individuals who are more productive, with a positive outlook about work are happier and more productive; the survey found that happy workers are 12% more productive than unhappy individuals, illustrating the impact happiness in the workplace has on a company’s productivity.
