Why You Need Emotional Intelligence at Work

According to a recent survey by RH, Int., nearly all human resource managers (95%) and workers (99%) say it’s important for employees to have a high emotional quotient, or EQ, because it helps them manage their own emotions and understand and react to the emotions of others, according to a survey of more than 600 H.R. managers and more than 800 employees by OfficeTeam. More than one in five employees (21%) believe EQ is more valuable in the workplace than intelligence quotient. Nearly two-thirds (65%) say the two are equally important. Most workers (92%) think they have strong emotional intelligence; fewer (74%) believe their bosses do.
