The Science of Being Happier At Work

Does your mood at work really affect your performance? It's hard to argue otherwise. Employees who are unhappy or dissatisfied tend to perform badly at work, while the opposite is also true, as confirmed in the infographic, "How to Be Happier at Work," from training provider Happify. Unfortunately, not all U.S. workers are satisfied with their jobs.
