Shiny, Happy Employees

Smiley Face

Over at Businesspundit, Rob points to a research project that claims employee satisfaction efforts do not bear the fruit we anticipate. Read Rob’s take and let me know what you think.

It boils down to whether we hire happy people, or we try to make our employees happy. Is job satisfaction and performance tied into your employee’s personalities or the environment you create?

Bonus Question

Does the environment you create attract employees of the proper personality?

One thought on “Shiny, Happy Employees

  1. To answer your question, yes, job satisfaction and performance are without a doubt tied to the environment of your business.

    Good To Great, the book by Jim Collins, shows case study after case study that proves that link. And yes, your environment affects the type of employees you attract too.

    Great questions.
