About Event

Creating a Happy Workplace – Is there a choice?
Not any longer.

​Remember, today we are working with five different generations of people. And, we need all of them.

The choice, however, depends on the intent – whether we want to drive success through happiness or happiness through success.

​Globally, studies have shown that workforce happiness is one of the most powerful drivers of organisational performance. People, who work with a sense of mental well-being, are more creative, innovative and productive. They cope with work related stress better, so important to sustain peak performance especially during economic downturns.
