Happiness test to boost Britain’s profits: Workers urged to take part in online survey
More than 10,000 people have taken part in the free survey by Engaging Works
Workers are being urged to go online and check how happy they are in a move that could boost the British economy.
More than 10,000 people have taken part in the free survey by Engaging Works, which was set up by former Waitrose boss Lord Price.
And 81 companies have signed up to the website, including Coca-Cola, Virgin Money and Burger King.
Businesses pay a fee for the service, which allows them to survey staff and find out where they need to improve morale.
Lord Price, who ran Waitrose for ten years before serving as a trade minister from April 2016 to September 2017, set up Engaging Works last year.
The 57-year-old said: ‘We have found academic research to show that businesses with engaged workforces have productivity which is 20 per cent higher and profits 20 per cent higher, so it is important for employers to help employees be engaged with their work.
‘Our mission is to make the world a little happier and we want to help businesses and individuals improve workplace happiness.’
