Does Worker Wellbeing Affect Workplace Performance?

Alex Bryson (), John Forth and Lucy Stokes

No 9096, IZA Discussion Papers from Institute of Labor Economics (IZA)

Abstract: This paper uses linked employer-employee data to investigate the relationship between employees' subjective well-being and workplace performance in Britain. The analyses show a clear, positive and statistically-significant relationship between the average level of job satisfaction at the workplace and workplace performance. This finding is present in both cross-sectional and panel analyses and is robust to various estimation methods and model specifications. In contrast, we find no association between levels of job-related affect and workplace performance.
