Employees trudge through the door just before 9am and settle at their desks in a grey, airless office. The pay is average, there’s not a lot of room for career development and flexible working is frowned upon. Nobody is particularly happy at the company, so there is a pretty high turnover of staff.
It’s not a great situation for any worker but fortunately, fewer businesses are being run in this way. In recent years, there has been greater focus on improving the psyche of employees and making them happier and healthier. And to do so, leaders are looking to positive psychology.
