We survey CEOs, police officers, truck drivers, cooks, engineers.

If people are working, we've surveyed them.

And what we know, in terms of their happiness:

workers all want the same things.

[The Way We Work]

There's three billion working people in the world.

And about 40 percent of them would say they're happy at work.

That means about 1.8 billion, or almost two billion people,

are not happy at work.

What does that do,

both to those people and the organizations that they work in?

Well, let's talk about money.

Organizations that have a lot of happy employees

have three times the revenue growth,

compared to organizations where that's not true.

They outperform the stock market by a factor of three.

And if you look at employee turnover,

it's half that of organizations that have a lot of unhappy employees.

The miracle thing is,

you don't have to spend more money to make this happen.
