Millions of dollars are spent every year on employee engagement. We know employee engagement has a direct link to workforce productivity, but what we didn’t know is that Sex might just be the best employee engagement solution yet! Maybe we’re trying to use software to solve a human issue. “We make jokes about people having a ‘spring in their step,’ but it turns out this is actually a real thing and we should pay attention to it,” said Keith Leavitt, co-author of a recently released research report “From the Bedroom to the Office:Workplace Spillover Effects of Sexual Activity at Home.” Leavitt is an associate professor in Oregon State Universities College of Business, and co-authored the report with Christopher M. Barnes, Trevor Watkins, David T. Wagner.
Sex at home increased both daily job satisfaction and daily job engagement…The results of the 2 week study of married, employed adults, showed the following: 1. When employees engaged in sex at home, they reported increased positive affect at work the following day, independent of the effects of marital satisfaction. 2. Sex at home increased both daily job satisfaction and daily job engagement as a function of increased positive affect. 3. Daily work-to-family strain-based conflict significantly reduced the likelihood of engaging in sex at home that evening. So, there you have it… maybe Viagra, or Cialis is the new employee engagement and retention strategy? I’d love to be a fly on the wall when someone actually bring this topic up to there Human Resources rep.
