Knobull Research Finds Alarming Social Happiness Trends
Boston College researchers found reports of anxiety increased to 50 percent and depression to 44 percent by November 2020.
The World Health Organization (WHO) has found that anxiety and depress globally is up by over 25%.
What is happening?
The Gallup Negative Experience Index which has already surveyed over 200,000 people globally has asked numerous questions on stress, pain, anger, sadness, worry and the respondents claiming their lives are the worst every possible has literally quadrupled in the past fifteen years.
At a corporate level only one in four employees globally in Gallup's database strongly agree that they have received recognition or praise for doing good work in the last week. Increase this will result in a 9% improvement in productivity, a 22% decrease in safety incidents and a 22% decrease in absenteeism.
By simply doubling the one in four employees who strongly agree, in Gallup's database, to receiving recognition or praise for doing good work in the last week, an average business could expect to save: $91,989,474 in gained employee productivity $2,807,200 due to decreased injuries $3,801,336 due to fewer unscheduled absences.
Most research studies show employees are only productive about 60% of the time and are more likely to be productive working from home. Being interrupted every 3 minutes at work and ineffective meetings contribute to employees' unproductivity.
Researchers asked ChatGPT this question with a minor variation with my own happiness life assessment and this is what it said:
"I am imagining that I am on a ladder, where the bottom rung (Number zero) is the worst possible life and the highest rung (10) is the best life. I have rated myself as a 9, what do you think?"
ChatGPT Response: "As an AI, I don't have personal opinions or the ability to evaluate individual lives or assign ratings. The rating you have given yourself as a 9 on the ladder indicates that you consider your life to be very close to the best possible life."
Bentley concluded, "There has been an increased in the conversation about happiness. There still remains major concerns about potential increases in mental health conditions which has promoted according to WHO for 90% of countries to promote mental health and psychosocial support."
