Happiness in the Workplace Seminar

If you are happy, people around you are happy.

 

In the workplace that means better communication with your team, which translates into higher productivity, less stress, more resilience and less absenteeism. 


On a personal level, increasing your positive emotions can bring stronger relationships, more peace and more control of your emotions.


Studies show that positive wellbeing at work —the place where we spend the majority of our waking hours— has the capability of increasing our creativity and our productivity by 40%.

 

Happy workers are 50% less likely to suffer from cardiac illnesses and studies show that we can learn to focus on the positive by simple gratitude exercises, that can make us 25% happier.

 

Our brain has the capability to make us happier and it can decrease effects of depression. Overall, happiness is a learned skill that we can master just like learning a sport.
