Employee morale isn't something that can be bought. The work environment has to provide people with opportunities to succeed, to do their best, to be trusted, to be valued, and to be respected. Research demonstrates that reaching potential, success on the job, achieving business results, personal productivity personal achievement, and meaningful inclusion and participation are the essential elements that foster high performance and high morale-the two are inseparable. Thus we come to a bold but empirically defensible statement: "Employee happiness and morale is NOT the critical path to employee productivity." Much of what we believe about human motivation just isn't so. Too often organizations are operating on assumptions about human productivity and performance that are essentially unexamined with any rigor and rooted in folklore more than science.
