16 traits to identify happy people in your recruitment process

No debate about the benefits of being happy at all levels, including in the workplace and the results of any single company as well. Today nobody doubts the power of having engaged happy high performers, driving real competitive advantage for the future. Therefore, the war should not just be for Talent but also for Happy Talent.

And it’s also true that one of the most important objectives a company should have, is to keep Talent happy. This is not about needing to motivate. This is about avoiding demotivation.

But today I want to pause on a previous step: when you have to start a recruitment process; how do you detect happy talent?. After a long journey reviewing innumerable studies, I was able to condense down to16 core traits which the majority of happy people share the majority of time. And when I talk about happy people, I talk about structurally happy people: resiliently happy people who seem immune to prolonged pessimism or negativity.

Here you can find the 16 core traits:
  • Generosity
  • Positive Recall of the past
  • Givers and receivers of Constructive Criticism
  • Enjoyment of the  “little things in life”
  • High level of Self-Esteem and Reality Bound self-perception
  • Assertiveness
  • Investment in experiences over material objects
  • Forgiving
  • Focused but Flexible
  • Sense of humor
  • Optimism
  • Self-direction, leading their own lives
  • Sense of Purpose
  • Resilience
  • Expressing gratitude easily

And the 16th is that happy people have a psychological need to share happiness with others. (Unhappy people have the same psychological need too, so take care!).

And the most interesting thing here: you can use it effortlessly in every recruitment process…starting tomorrow…for free.
