Top tips for increasing the key drivers of happiness at work in your sector

We’ve found there are 15 key drivers of happiness at work. We ask how employees experience them at work as part of our quarterly Culture Profile. Here we share top tips organizations can all do to improve five of these key drivers.

Drivers of happiness & productivity

1. Pride

Invest in initiatives that live and breathe company values. They remind us why we joined an organization and reaffirm why we should stay.

2. Appreciation
