Case closed: Happier workers are more successful workers.

In a massive study (looking at nearly one million people), conducted by some of the biggest names in positive psychology, and crystal clear in its conclusions: Being happier dramatically increases your chances of success at work. So next time you're tempted to push pursuing happiness into the future, remind yourself the latest science says happiness brings success and not the other way around. 

The research, which recently appeared in the Journal of Happiness Studies (yes, this really exists) and was summed up by its authors in an MIT Sloan Management Review article, starts from a simple question. What comes first, success or happiness? Does being successful make you happy or does being happy make you successful? 
To find out, the team--Paul Lester, Ed Diener, and Martin Seligman (who is often dubbed "the father of positive psychology")--set out to collect a huge amount of data. To do so they looked to the world's largest employer: the military. The researchers worked with the U.S. Army to follow nearly one million soldiers over five years, measuring both their well-being upon entering the army and their performance over time.

The Importance of Clear Messaging When Shifting COVID-19 Screening and Prevention Strategies

Our nation’s ability to provide clear and concise information regarding COVID-19 has been strained at best and at absolutely chaotic at worse. Part of the problem is that science takes time to research, verify and establish the best practices for mitigating the spread. This leads to a lack of a definitive consensus, which erodes the trust and confidence in established institutions. 

We’ve learned much since the first few chaotic months of the pandemic and many industries have adjusted to the ‘new normal’ that we find ourselves enduring. If there is one thing business owners can learn from this entire experience is that they need to be clear and concise with their communication when implementing new policies.

Taking a Holistic Approach to Employee Safety

Every year, millions of employees file workers’ compensation claims due to workplace incidents. Though workers’ compensation is a no-fault system — meaning workers can file a claim without needing to prove fault — many of the incidents that occur are the result of poor management and a lack of employee safety

Though many industries have high safety standards and good leadership to help mitigate accidents, employees continue to get sick and hurt from work performed on the job. In recent years, experts have come together to discuss why this is and what can be done to better address employee safety. They concluded that the issue with workplace health and safety is that it takes a narrow approach, primarily addressing only physical risk factors one at a time.
To test this theory, the National Institute for Occupational Safety & Health (NIOSH) is looking into addressing workplace safety through a more holistic approach. They believe that worker health and safety is about total body health, which means taking steps to address issues other than physical risks.
