Ultimately, companies look to be productive and successful, and engaged employees are a means to that end — but happiness can't be ignored, either.
Employee happiness is a much lauded standard — but despite the saying that "happy people work harder," the question of how to cultivate a happy workforce, particularly when your workers are diverse, may be more challenging to answer than throwing office parties every week.

Happiness means different things to different people. The task for HR, then, may be to create many avenues for happiness and steer employees to their own career bliss.
