Join us as we explore “The Joy of Se… Serotonin” or as it is more commonly known – the happiness drug. A study by the University of Warwick found happy employees are 12% more productive; unhappy ones 10% less productive. That’s why happiness matters!

Human happiness has a positive effect on productivity,  organisational success and a host of other things too. Take a look at a few statistics that back this up:

  • Companies with happy employees outperform the competition by 20%
  • Employees who report being happy at work take x10 fewer sick days
  • And happy salespeople produce 37% more sales!

Most people want happier workplaces but aren’t sure where to begin or how to go about achieving it. Join us as our guests share practical tips and advice to make your workplace more than just colourful walls and a few free snacks in the fridge.
