Happy Hands Make Light Work

Happy Hands Make Light Work

As it turns out—according to Dr. Noelle Nelson’s research via a Forbes article by Steve Cooper—happy hands make light work. Or, more correctly, happy workers work harder. Dr. Nelson’s research concludes that when a company gives back to employees, or makes them more comfortable, the employees are more willing to give to the company. In her book, Make More Money by Making Your Employees Happy, she cites Apple and Procter & Gamble both giving their employees more time off. At purely face value, they lose man hours. However, their workers were happier and more willing to work.
Again, this is a “you scratch my back; I’ll scratch yours” situation. And, again, teaching somebody English would ostensibly make somebody happy; at least, I would be a lot more accepting of some things if they also came with a language lesson on the side.
