The Four Pillars of Workplace Happiness

Purpose, Engagement, Resilience, and Kindness.

According to a study conducted by the University of Berkeley, California, happier employees tend to perform better in all aspects of their work, leading to increased productivity and career advancement opportunities that ultimately benefit the organization as a whole.

It’s clear that happy employees are more productive and contribute to a company’s profitability. However, defining “happiness” in the workplace can be somewhat challenging. While happiness at home may involve relaxation and entertainment, workplace happiness is different. The Greater Good Science Center at Berkeley identifies four key qualities that contribute to workplace happiness: Purpose, Engagement, Resilience, and Kindness, or simply known as “PERK.”

Purpose: Having a sense of purpose and belief in the company’s mission is essential for employee motivation and dedication to their work.

Engagement: Finding a balance between work and enjoyment is crucial to prevent burnout. Incorporating moments of fun and camaraderie through celebrations and casual interactions in the office can make work more enjoyable.

Resilience: Building resilience to overcome challenges and setbacks is important in any workplace. Employees need to learn how to navigate stressful situations with the confidence that they can overcome them.

Kindness: Fostering positive relationships in the workplace is key to creating a supportive environment. While not every coworker needs to be a close friend, showing kindness through compliments, empathy, and recognition can boost overall morale.
