The Globe And Mail: Stressed at work? Try a gratitude attitude

About This Project

“Plasticity Labs, a Waterloo, Ont.-based company that measures and aims to improve employee happiness, looked at the survey and tested whether they could inject gratitude into a workplace. They conducted their own survey, taking 65 employees who range in age from 18 to 82 and divided them into two groups. One group was asked to describe on a regular basis what they were grateful for at work, and the second group was asked to do the same for their personal lives. Those who focused on positive aspects at work eventually reported greater workplace gratitude and showed greater job satisfaction than those who focused on life outside work. The first group also reported an increase in job performance and reduction in turnover rates. All the company needed to do to benefit from the results was to allocate time for the simple activity of writing down what makes employees feel happy.”
