Principle #20

20. Improved community at work: Companies that embrace the concept of joy in their mission and vision break down barriers and improve the overall sense of community.

Findings from a 2021 Forbes publication by Bob Bennett indicate that a culture of joy in the workplace can improve relationships between colleagues (Bennett, 2021). The article discusses tangible ways executive leadership can create an environment that sparks joy in employees, such as fostering a culture centered on building relationships and community, ensuring employees understand the goals of the company and their role in achieving those goals, and encouraging social impact both internally and externally through community action. Research conducted in 2018 by Kearney found that only 37% of respondents reported experiencing substantial joy at work. This shows the importance of creating a joyous workplace culture. Additionally, the article discusses how a focus on relationship building, understanding their role in the company’s journey, and encouraging community action both internally and externally can help employees find joy at work. These measures can lead to smoother work, better communication, and a feeling of being valued by colleagues.

Job satisfaction was found to be higher among employees who experienced positive emotions in the workplace, with an increase of 6.6% in overall job satisfaction. Furthermore, employees that experienced positive emotions in the workplace reported feeling more connected to their co-workers and bosses, leading to greater collaboration and teamwork. (Gupta & Zeithaml, 2006)
