Is the means to a better end.

A recent study proves what we have always seen with our own eyes: If you’re happier at work, you work harder.

Every top station I’ve ever been in had this one common trait: they were really fun places to work.

Radio has — used to have — an inherent advantage in this trait, and we abuse it at our own peril. Google spends a LOT of money trying to keep their employees happy. And they just passed Apple as the most valuable brand in the world.

I know there is a lot of pressure on you today. I know you’re probably doing more than one full time job, whether its managing multiple stations or doing an air shift while you also program the whole station, but find a way to make your station fun again.

Find ways to make boost your employees’ happiness, especially when they’re inside your building.

It’s worth the investment.
