According to a study, eighty percent of people are unhappy with their jobs. This unhappiness can stem from a lot of reasons. It can come from a low salary, a toxic work environment, office bullying, or a monster boss. The world of work has changed. A company’s survival in the market depends highly on its capacity to deliver high-quality products and services. Competition is fierce as companies vie for more market share to survive. As they improve products and services, they have to motivate their employees to produce more or provide excellent service.
Employees are confronted with rendering overtime or having to take work home. In order to provide for themselves and their families, they have to sacrifice time for themselves and time for the ones they love. Added to this is the consumerist society that they live in where happiness has been defined as having the means to buy more of what one can consume. One must be able to afford the most fashionable clothes, the most expensive car, and the biggest house. Not being able to afford them falls short of the “standard” that society has defined.
One other factor is that people are spending most of the time of their lives doing work that they feel is not their calling. They find that they almost have no time at all to do things that they are passionate about. Most of them feel that they lack the resources to launch their business ideas or that the talent they possess cannot be used for a living. They feel stuck in a job or career path they would love to be released from.
So wide and so pervasive is this epidemic of unhappiness in societies. Even companies are now seeking ways to make their employees happy by motivating them. It is somehow a relief for most that companies are starting to realize that happy employees mean more productivity and more profit. This is the reason why companies have sought the help of motivational speakers—not just to motivate their employees to work but also to give them some semblance of hope for their future and their lives.
Motivational speakers are gifted with a pulsating positive energy that is extremely contagious. They inspire people by their words, their stories, and their persona. They tell stories of overcoming challenges: stories of hope. They tell people that the future can only get better if they will do their due diligence in the here and now. People become inspired and motivated—and thus happy—thinking that they do have something to look forward to.
When companies invite them to their company, there is often a renewed spirit in their workforce. People have smiles on their faces. When people are happy, they are motivated to work and to perform well. Hence there is an inevitable increase in productivity and quality.
Motivational speakers dispense with this cloud of unhappiness that veils the work landscape. Nothing uplifts and fills the heart of people than the belief that things can only get better. They remind them that their situation is certainly not permanent. They remind people that hard work and discipline can truly make their dreams come true. They also bring back the faith of employees in their employers.
Motivational speakers help cure this epidemic of unhappiness that is fast taking over the workplace. If not stopped, it can mean a huge drop of market share for businesses. It will mean products that are shoddily done. It will also mean poor customer service. A business that loses its market will eventually go bankrupt and close. It is indeed a great idea for companies to invest in inviting motivational speakers to their companies. They provide renewed vigor to the workplace by making employees happy.
