WHI CALCULATOR

Welcome to the Workplace Happiness Index (WHI) productivity gain calculator. This new calculator is our newest tool. It is used to clearly illustrate the potential financial gains related to happier employees.

You are a for-profit company or organization

You are an NPO, an association, a ministry or a municipality

To begin, please choose one of the two options above.

The average happiness index is 68.5. It varies somewhat depending on the type of business. Manufacturing and retail companies score a few points lower, while service companies score a few points higher.

Desired increase in WHI results

0 / 15 points

Conduct a subjective assessment of what the overall WHI results could be for your organization and record the desired increase in terms of points.

Enter your turnover for the last fiscal year.

Gross profit (%)

0%

Your direct labour rate (%)

0%

The direct labour rate is the proportion (%) of all wages paid to employees in relation to reported turnover.

Productivity gains

Productivity gains are linked to increases in employee performance, efficiency, and output.

Gains related to reductions in non-quality costs

Gains related to reductions in non-quality costs refer to reductions in the costs associated with poor performance (absenteeism, presenteeism, illness, burnout, staff turnover, work accidents, internal theft, laxity, indifference, etc.). They are estimated at about 50% of total earnings. However, it is important to note that this proportion may vary depending on the nature of the organization.

Total earnings

Total earnings are calculated on an annual basis and are meant to be recurring.

Please note that over the past few years, a subindex (the WHI) of the RHI (Relative Happiness Index) has been developed to assess employees’ level of happiness at work.

The WHI test provides the following information:

  • The overall happiness index of your employees (RHI)
  • The Workplace Happiness Index (WHI) of these same employees
  • RHI and WHI results according to job segments (branch, department, job type, age, etc.)
  • Overall and segmented results for the five factors of workplace happiness:
    • Self-fulfillment
    • Workplace relationships
    • Recognition
    • Accountability
    • Salary
  • Feeling of belonging (overall and by segment)
  • Comparisons

For all types of organizations, workplace happiness is an important performance factor and increases productivity. A high happiness index (WHI) impacts many aspects of productivity while reducing non-quality costs.

  • Absenteeism
  • Presenteeism
  • Burnout
  • Staff turnover (retention)
  • Recruitment of new staff
  • Workplace environment/climate
  • Work accidents
  • Internal theft
  • Laxity/indifference
  • Dispersal (personal projects)
