So someone just did a study to prove what we all know to be true. Happiness is contagious. Ergo, I make the other obvious leap for you, if you have the opportunity, hire someone who is happy.
Happy people tend to be better off in myriad ways, including being more creative, productive and healthy.
I can tell you from experience, that having people who are positive and happy on your team can help you out when things get tough. While you are at it, foster an environment that helps people stay happy.
For those of you who are looking for a job, I suggest you find your happy place and decide to be that positive influence for the team. If you are happy everyone benefits.
Time to take one for the team and have a Happy Holiday!
