Why Invest In Happiness?

The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the urgency to invest in employee wellbeing.

Positive managers are top performers, both at the individual and organizational level. Research has demonstrated that work practices aligned with personal and collective growth, values and purpose have positive effects on satisfaction and resilience, thus strengthening innovation, participation, trust and retention.

The positive domino effect sparked by positive practices, inevitably fuels job performance and increases firm productivity.

Who Should Attend

HR directors, general managers, department heads, industry consultants, business coaches, HR trainers, recruiters and other professionals in the services industries who want to be leaders in the wellbeing at work movement.
