Unlocking Happiness at Work

Can you really be both “happy” and “at work”? We all want to be happy, engaged, and satisfied with our job or in the career we’ve chosen. Loving what it is we do makes us less stressed, decreases boredom, increases motivation, and has an overall positive impact on our personal lives. As workplace leaders, we want happier employees. These employees are more engaged, approach their work with enthusiasm, and bring a hunger to innovate.

Sadly, only 13% of the global workforce is happy and engaged. Despite all the stats, happiness strategies are often low on the workplace priority list. With 50% of our waking hours spent at work in our lifetime; this is a massive problem. It isn’t just costing employers – studies show that employee disengagement is making us lonely, anxious, and harming our health.

Jennifer Moss believes we can solve this well-being crisis and has the research and data-backed insights to show us how. Drawing on her experiences as a behavioural sciences consultant and member of the UN Global Happiness Council, Jennifer provides audiences with practical advice to become happier, healthier, and higher-performing people both professionally and personally.

We all want to be happy, engaged and satisfied and yet, during this time of continued change, these emotional states are at risk. Despite feeling overwhelmed, there is an opportunity for growth. By developing psychological skills, we can take the lessons learned during the pandemic and carry them into our post-Covid-19 reality, and be well-prepared to handle current and future stress.

We’re in a time, like no other in history, where organizations have been given an opportunity to redefine their workplace.
