EMPLOYERS have been shown the secrets to a happy and productive workforce in a week-long event run by a Kidderminster recruitment provider.
Work Happy Week was set up by jobs experts Workforce Staffing to encourage staff, businesses and candidates to enjoy what they do and understand the benefits of an enjoyable working environment.
Staff at the firm’s Church Street branch ran a variety of competitions, candidate workshops and group activities on happiness and combatting stress.
Paula Alekna, Workforce CEO, said: “It is no secret that a happy workforce is a productive workforce, but it is very easy to forget this and for all of us to sometimes neglect the need to not only have a job, but to enjoy it as well.
“Everything from stress at home to lacking the right training to progress at work can all play its part.
“Getting the right help and knowing where to go is essential and we were very keen to play our part in helping our own staff, customers and candidates take the right approach to happiness at work.
“It helped people understand that it is important to strike the right balance.”
