The level of the employee’s happiness and productivity in any organisation is largely responsible for the profit making ability of the organisation and its survival in the long run. It is up to you to find the most effective way of deriving the best out of the work force. After all, your employees are your biggest asset, and the could have the ability to transform the business completely; that is if they can work happily and show their true potential.

Why should you attend?

Companies like Google have invested heavily in employee relationships and as a result their employee happiness and satisfaction has risen by 37%.

It is safe to say that today’s office environments have to work harder than ever before to provide ease and flexibility to the workers that utilize them. Offering employees freedom and ownership over where they best work, builds a relationship of trust in the organization. Employees are more likely to stay loyal and be more engaged with their work and colleagues if they feel more valued and empowered in their organization.

This seminar will help you to better understand what makes your staff happy and motivated, and the effect that the design of your office will have on their productivity and creativity. This is an unmissable event if you are planning an office relocation, refurbishment or want to become the employer of choice.

The Science behind Making Employees Happy in the Workplace

Many people think that success leads to happiness, but actually it’s the other way around. A decade of research in positive psychology and neuroscience has found that happiness is the precursor to success — not the result. Research with corporations has also proven that happiness and optimism actually fuel performance and achievement, giving companies a competitive edge in what is called the happiness advantage. This session explores findings from new research with the Centre for Neuro-economics Studies.
