How do you feel about work? More specifically, your particular job? A recent study found that people who are emotionally attached to their work and identify with it enjoy a greater sense of psychological wellbeing. That’s meaningful to employees and employers.
You’re motivated to do a better job when you identify with your work. You tend to be more engaged and connected to the mission of the organization. That might be obvious. But, did you also know it may help you sleep better and avoid burnout? Study results say yes.
Employers get the benefit of a healthier, happier worker – one who is committed, involved, and less likely to be late, absent or leave. What’s more, the positive emotional field happy employees generate and spread improves the workplace. Feeling good about work works for everyone!
