An Open Letter to Every Business Frustrated by Low Productivity and Unhappy Employees

Reading Time: 3 minutes

You know that your company is only as good as its workforce. Your employees are the foundation; their hard work keeps the whole business afloat. But unsatisfied or unhappy employees can come with a whole host of problems.


Because you know this, you hire as carefully as you can. You train each new hire thoroughly and go to great lengths to ensure everyone has the tools and skills to do their jobs well. And you do your best to motivate and inspire your employees to keep the fires lit in their bellies.

But still, you feel like something is lacking. Maybe you can’t quite put your finger on it but your workplace is missing that spark, that special something that transforms your business into a well-oiled machine where everyone operates at peak efficiency. 

How to Take Your Company to the Next Level

That secret spark you’re looking for? It comes from your employees being happy, healthy, and fulfilled in their personal and professional lives. Your company can only perform at its peak when each individual is also performing at their best. When your employees are well-rested and well-fed, with high energy and low stress, they can give their all to their work. Conversely, unhappy employees have the potential to drag your company under.

Think about it. It’s so much easier to move forward when you feel like your progress matters, right? When employees are making real, measurable progress toward goals that improve their lives—eating healthier food, sleeping better, and so on—it builds momentum, leading to greater productivity. People reach higher and work harder because they know they can succeed.

But what does your employees’ personal success have to do with you? What can you possibly do to help your workers achieve their personal goals?

Well, you could hire life coaches and personal trainers to work one-on-one with each of your employees to help them overcome their stagnation. But that sounds pretty expensive!

What if there was some other way? Something cheaper, of course, but that also required less oversight? What if there was a program you could easily implement across your whole company that would help your employees help themselves? And what if success was not only guaranteed but backed up by the latest in behavioral science research?

If it sounds too good to be true, you’re in for a treat, because such a thing exists: Fabulous.

Fabulous Can Transform Your Workforce

Fabulous was incubated in Duke University’s Center for Advanced Hindsight, founded by bestselling author and behavioral economist Dan Ariely, and uses the latest in behavioral science research to inform its design and programming. Fabulous teaches users how to develop positive habits to improve their overall quality of life. These healthy habits lead to positive outcomes that spill into your employees’ working life, resulting in more getting done and less time off needed for sick days.

Oh, and another fun fact about happy employees? They’re less likely to quit, which reduces the costs associated with hiring and training replacements. That’s right: Fabulous can actually help you save money!

But you don’t have to take only our word for it. Just like the scientists behind our app, we like to let the data speak for itself. Fabulous has over 10 million users and Fabulous has received top recognition from both Apple (Best Self-Care App) and Google (Editor’s Choice App). 80 percent of people who use Fabulous build—and stick to—healthy morning routines within just 8 weeks, giving people the energy and focus they need to do their job to the best of their ability.

Ready? Set. Fabulous!
