"When employees are happy and feel that the company takes their interest to heart, then the employees will take company interests to heart," says Dr. Nelson, a clinical psychologist, best-selling author and business trial consultant.
In her book, Dr. Nelson cites a study from the Jackson Organization, a survey research consultancy, since acquired by Healthstream, Inc., which shows, "companies that effectively appreciate employee value enjoy a return on equity& assets more than triple that experienced by firms that don't. When looking at Fortune's '100 Best Companies to Work For' stock prices rose an average of 14% per year from 1998-2005, compared to 6% for the overall market."

In fact, companies that offer employees a balance between their work and personal lives are more likely to keep employees happy in their current jobs.
