Organizational success requires a high level of focus, teamwork and consistency. Disconnection because of isolation and being in different physical spaces can decrease the level of group cohesion and trust.
Groups don’t work well together if they rarely spend time together and get to know each other. Group members may assume different expectations, have different cultures or struggle to communicate. In organizational cultures that lack empathy, Group members may cope through detachment, disengagement and/or sabotage, shown through lateness, poor communication, low trust, gossip and poor attitude. Some people with a higher worth ethic may try to overcompensate, but eventually negativity can get to everyone. Research shows that motivation and engagement is related with empathic traits such as listening skills, communication, appreciation and transparency, whereas self worth may be related to compensation.
Happiness is a key factor in organizational success and member commitment, but happiness isn’t just a feeling or an attitude, it can be called a way of looking at the world. Employee Happiness has been named as a key factor in longer term success and higher profitability over time in several research studies.
