It is common knowledge that humans are naturally driven to work by happiness. The happier they are at what they do, translates itself automatically into enhanced productivity.

While many people often focus on customer satisfaction and happiness, they get often sidetracked and as a result, have to deal with mountain piles of resignation letters, and sometimes, litigations.

What they miss is that; it is not only the customers that need to be satisfied. Employees need to be kept happy and satisfied. Moreover, opportunities to keep employees happy abound around us, however, only managers are able to take advantage of those opportunities.

Perhaps as a manager, you feel like you have been doing enough in terms of keeping your employees happy, but with no valid way of measuring it out. Payboy offers diverse and suitable methods for measuring employee happiness. Among which are:

What’s more, is that when your employee is trying as hard as they can, and there is no effective means to monitor their attendance and work schedule. An employer that is able to identify the reason for burnout is effectively able to combat it. Through Payboy attandance tracking module, employee authentication is enhanced, and timesheet is effectively monitored. The tracking can be effectively linked to the payroll and provide an effective means of monitoring pay. An employee with the correct payment is always a happy employee.

Nobody wants a micro-manager: A micro-manager doesn’t give room for outside the box thinking – A perfect killer of employee happiness. The employees knowing that their input no matter how little it is appreciated. Micro-managing cannot be discouraged without any effective chain of communication within the company.
