Bosses should harness good feeling in the workplace to ensure their staff are working in a positive environment.
According to an expert in the employment industry, staff that are happier and are challenged will help forge the success of a company.
Head of the centre for well-being at the new economics foundation Nic Marks spoke at the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development's annual conference, saying that staff need to be happy and healthy.
"Employee well-being is becoming increasingly important as organisations realise the link between happy, healthy staff and their long-term success," he remarked.
Challenge in the working environment as well as interest will help to drive the success of the firm, he added.
Employers should even conduct well-being audits, he suggested.
Recent research from Ceridian has found colleagues can cause workers stress at work.
Data from the company shows that 58 per cent of employees will keep quiet about annoying habits their colleagues have and suffer in silence.
