What Factors Motivate You At The Work Place?

When you start your day with a feeling that clearly states you are not interested in heading out to your work place, and the reason seems unknown is definitely not health related. If you ponder further to understand the reason of absenteeism, the studies all over the world have come out with remarkable statistics showing that productive employees need more than just a good job. What defines a good job is more significant in perceiving an employee’s future performance vs. his goals.


A good job should engage an employee into the company’s fold. It also means 18% more productivity & 59% of creative ideas that come alongside with a right to be heard.67% of the employees want their team managers to communicate and lead. By guiding through leadership, and allowing communication both ways, team managers make for easy comprehension and implementation of these creative ideas. 50% + of organizations all over the world with high employee engagement retain 80% + of their customers. This statistic adds to another statistic that shows 70% don’t quit their jobs; they quit their bosses. Simple facts that provide evidence of a two way route to working productively in a company. While the team manager motivation plan should consider happiness as a factor in highlighting team performance, peer motivation is 20% higher in causing productivity than team manager‘s motivational tactics.

An employee, if is on boarded with proper training is likely to achieve its first milestone with a 77% higher rate,  as compared to the ones who have not received a formal training. Satisfaction for a team manager is + 20% if training is provided, notwithstanding the fact that shows 67% of full time employees with access to free food at work are extremely or very happy at their current job. Free food in itself is a productivity criterion in a company of a different kind, if given to its employees comes with an ROI.

Happy Work Environment = Happy Employee= Happy ROI = Happy Employer

Companies have people as their # 1 asset. While this statement might be true, “HAPPY PEOPLE IN COMPANIES MAKE FOR MORE PRODUCTIVE ASSETS”, might sound more accurate. Established statistics show that happy employees are 31% more productive, and 3X as much creative. While they also state that unhappy employees are 10 % less productive, this only proves that happiness can manifest into productive employees for a company, but also be a joyful manifestation of a cheerful ROI. A happy employee becomes the soul of the company making everyone positive alongside, and this positivity becomes the essence of the fun office environment.


The straightforward answer to the above question is a simple yes. We also need to know the correct & acceptable way to achieve this immense happiness. Happiness is a stimulating, unlocking key for a productive employee of the company. The key to a happy work environment is the happy employee. If an individual is happy then the energy is felt by every interaction he makes, and this cheerful personification of life reflects at your work environment as well. It’s a small circle of a happy work life.


Happy Employees are productive reflection on others in a company. While the team manager has a task of employee recognition he chooses to work upon, praise is not something that gives you monetary help. It is definitely a motivational light for scoring success in life. Recognition at work or in life is a small facet that makes an employee happy and smile from within. It is also a pre requisite to become a worthwhile asset for a company to never let go off.

India- Where are we there on the path to Sustainable Development?

Sustainable development is a constant process for meeting the human development goals, by reserving the available resources for the future generation. According to a United Nations report, India’s population encompasses about 1.2 billion people and is expected to grow by another 300 billion in the next couple of decades. With the booming population in India, achieving sustainable development has become increasingly important.


Due to the huge demographic expanse of India, a large population tends to be bereft of the basic necessities of life. As, India’s performance continues to be below the global average in most of the Human Development Indicators (HDI), the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) ranks India at the 135th position in the Human Development Index (HDI).  The  United Nations have devised the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s), which are targets for the
United Nations member states, to redefine their governmental, social and business operations and rank higher in the HDI.

The Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Act of 2013 is a crucial step towards attaining the Sustainable Development Goals. CSR is more of a business practice that involves business entities in participating in initiatives that benefit the society and adopt sustainability into the core of their operations. The CSR programs adopted by companies ranges from community development to development in education, environment and healthcare, among others. TATA group has allocated around 100 crores in their CSR budget towards education, through the Tata Education Excellence Program. Wipro’s “Applying Thought in Schools” is a part of its CSR initiative “Wipro cares”. This program has brought together 1000 schools, 10,000 educators and 30 social organizations across 17 states in the country to create a reform in the field of education.
