Team celebrating in an office

I’m sure you’re not surprised to learn that happy employees truly are productive employees. In a laboratory environment, happy employees were 12% more productive than their unhappy counterparts. At Google, this number jumps to 37%. This likely resonates if you have ever had or currently have a positive work environment and a great relationship with your superiors. The more you love your company and those you work for, the harder you will work for them.

This is how company culture can translate into revenue. Let’s take a SaaS company as an example. The harder your marketing team works, the more leads will flow from your website and social networks to your sales team. The harder your sales team works, the more free trials will be initiated. The harder your onboarding team works, the more free trials will convert into paying customers. The harder your customer service and support team works, the more customers you will retain.

In short, that’s more leads, more sales, more customer retention, and then ultimately more revenue.

How Companies Create Happy Employees

So how do companies keep their employees happy? There are lots of ways. Some do it with perks. Lendio offers unlimited paid time off. Google has on-site healthcare. Ernst & Young gives up to 39 weeks of paid maternity leave. Microsoft has on-campus retail shops and sports fields.

Other companies do it by offering higher than average salaries. The top 50 happiest companies based on average salary have annual salaries ranging from $40k – $100.

Depending on the size of your company and the type of resources you have, you may not be able to put a sports field on your campus or give unlimited time off. But there is still a way to inject happiness into your company culture and reap the benefits of a healthy work environment.

How Celebration Can Enhance Company Culture

If you’re not celebrating your employees’ hard work and amplifying their success they are likely feeling disconnected from the team, especially at larger companies. By broadcasting and sharing their wins you ensure that they stay motivated to keep up with a high-performance culture.
