Cost for Emotion – C4E

The Cost4Emotion analysis: The mood barometer for your company

Analyse the mood in the workplace and support the productivity of your employees through targeted measures.

Record the emotional balance sheet of your company

You know your financial balance sheets, which are used to assess your success; however, financial shows the productivity of a company only to a limited extent.
The environmental balance sheet and sustainability are further perspectives on success-determining corporate activities.

Employee satisfaction and the attractiveness of the employer for newcomers are important emotional factors that make up the emotional balance sheet that determines the company value from the perspective of the people in the company.

Results from motivation research and many years of consulting experience form the scientific basis for the Cost for Emotion C4E analysis tool, which we use to examine correlations between emotion, appreciation and performance.

A good mood influences a person’s performance. It may multiply his personal ability. – Gustav Großmann (1893 – 1973)
