Why Happiness At Work Matters – And What To Do About It!
What’s the link between happiness and productivity? Studies show that people who feel unhappy at work experience more stress and conflicts, are less productive and get sick more often. Studies also show that happy workplaces do much better than unhappy ones. They make more money, achieve their goals more rapidly and deal better with change.
But how do we develop happiness at work? What does it take to create happy workplaces? Who is responsible for that? Get the answers in this inspiring conference, where we reveal what happiness at work is, why it matters and how to get it.
