Creating a great place to work is strongly correlated with better financial performance.
Several speakers at Happy Workplaces Conference discussed this topic.
Hi, we are Happy
We are leading a movement to create happy, empowered and productive workplaces.
How can we help you and your people to find joy in at least 80% of your work?
'In God we trust; all others bring data' - W. Edwards Deming
