Unlocking Happier Workplaces
Happy teams are also objectively healthier. According to WebMD, upwards of 90% of doctors’ visits can be attributed to some form of negative stress in a patient’s life. It is also estimated that upwards of $576B are lost every year by US employers to workforce illness. All of this, even though, on average, companies spend around $750 per employee on employee wellness initiatives. For these reasons and more, it is fair to say that workplace engagement and happiness begin with an inclusive workplace culture.

At the root of a happy and innovative workplace, is an inclusive workplace culture. While there is a global social call for inclusive workplaces, statistics also show that 8% of employee turnover and 17% of employee disengagement is due to inclusion-related issues. A typical firm comprised of 3,000 employees can expect to lose $24 million annually on attrition alone. Extrapolate those figures across a global enterprise scale, and losses are well into the hundreds of millions.
