According to an article recently reported in NPR, spending money on time-saving services can make people happier, while spending money on material purchases does not.
The article focused on the happiness gained through time-saving activities in our personal lives, such as hiring a gardener or a meal delivery service. This saves time by having others handle laborious tasks allowing us to focus our time on other more valued pursuits.
We believe that having additional time would benefit us in productivity, teamwork, and satisfaction from goal attainment. Using employment verification as an example, the time savings gained through outsourcing should enable companies to support critical HR and Payroll initiatives which would have otherwise been ignored.
What are your experiences? Does utilizing time-saving services in your business increase your happiness? Your productivity? We want to hear from you!
