Whitaker - Happy Is Productive



Following January’s newsletter about revising your candidate experience to attract top talent, let’s take a look at improving workplace happiness to keep your top employees happy and engaged.

According to an article on techbeacon.com “Happy dev teams write better code, faster. That’s a fact.” So, what can you do to ensure your project team is happy….and stays productive? Here are a few articles offering great advice on small adjustments that can be done quickly and inexpensively:

Key Points:

  1. Culture: Companies that land on “best places to work” lists have the best cultures, helping them win during the talent war.
  2.  Vision: Get buy-in from key employees and keep them aligned and committed to the purpose and vision of the project to work towards shared project goals.
  3. Communication: Managers and team leads should ensure their teams have a clear understanding of the scope and deliverables of their projects.
  4. Professional development: Help employees develop a career path within your organization, developing new skills or enhancing existing ones.
  5. Recognition (or verbal praise): Recognizing people for their good work sends an extremely powerful message to the recipient, their work team and other employees
