Happy workers are productive workers, writes Linda Mignone, so it pays to keep your employees chipper and cheerful. While gifts and gimmicks can pay short-term dividends, long-term worker contentment stems from a sense of connectedness and teamwork. "A team makes a bigger, bolder, richer sound, with more layers, like an orchestra. And the richest sounds come when the team feels that they are part of something big; a big idea, a vision," Mignone writes.
