The idea here is that there almost has to be a correlation between employee “happiness” (perhaps as employee satisfaction) and engagement and productivity. While “happiness” may not be the actual factor we want to use in identifying who the top candidates are to outplace, there is certainly a role for happiness in the overall morale and productivity equation.
