Well-being is a prerequisite for performance

Modern life offers great opportunities for work and private life challenges. In search of the good life, we may use more resources than we have at our disposal.

The equation is simple. If we spend more than we have, we're going to be in deficit. It burdens the organism and there is a risk of permanent damage.

We know the link between well-being and economic growth

We can best compare to children in a candy store. Let 10 kids into a candy store. Most people will eat until they get a stomach ache. Some may not like sweets and some may notice when to stop, but most will have trouble eating too much. Children find it difficult to regulate themselves in a candy store. So have adults in modern life. We have not learned it, because it has not been necessary.

Well-being is a prerequisite for success. Private and on the job.

Well-being is a shared responsibility. Employees must learn to regulate and dose themselves, and managers have a duty to ensure healthy working conditions.

"Train people well enough so they can leave, treat them well enough so they don't want to"

This is documented by Kraka and the Knowledge Centre for Good Labour with this report, which is based on a survey of 4500 Danish employees. The study has been taken in cooperation with Statistics Denmark. Based on Danish data and using an internationally recognized method, the study – as the first of its kind – maps out the concrete value of desire for work.
