The central focus of this quantitative, correlational study is to examine the relationship between happiness found in the work place and employees’ engagement that leads to organizational success. Employee engagement has been touted as the next frontier that will help organizations to achieve success. This is because passionate employees will ensure that they are productive in the work place. Happiness has been argued to be one of the factors that enhance employee engagement. The collected data shows a positive correlation between happiness and engagement of the employee. This is an important finding as it can be used by organizations to fast track their development by ensuring that employees are happy. The establishment of a positive correlation between these two aspects ensures that an organization can benefit greatly when it enhances employee happiness. In addition, measures can be put in place to ensure that employee happiness is enhanced, a move that would lead to a more productive organization and faster growth. Although the concept of employee engagement and its relationship to happiness has been around, this study goes further to confirm that happy employees are more engaged and this leads to organizational success. Organizational culture and environment affects the performance and approach of employees. Leadership in the organization is a vital aspect as it ensures that employees are provided with the right environment to carry out tasks and be content with the work. With this new knowledge, leaders can take measures to improve employee happiness, which will lead to employee engagement and, consequently, improve the prospects of organizational success.
