IN A WORLD WHERE ORGANIZATIONS ARE COMPETING FOR THE SAME GREAT PEOPLE, BUILDING A STRONG AND HAPPY WORKPLACE IS ESSENTIAL
Imagine getting up in the morning and really looking forward to going to work every day. Okay, maybe almost every day -- we are humans, after all! I may be crazy, but I have seen many people who are excited to go to work—to do what they love, to share ideas and come up with new ones, and hang out with colleagues they enjoy being around at work and outside of work.
SOUND LIKE A FANTASY?
It truly is possible. And it doesn’t require a million dollar budget or a Silicon Valley address. I’ve seen small companies and large multinationals embrace the possibilities of creating a workplace where people can bring all of what makes them incredible and unique to their work. And that becomes contagious.
In a world where everyone is competing for great people to work for them, the differentiator often lies in the workplace culture and the people that are excited to work there.
WHY IS THIS IMPORTANT?
We spend an obscene amount of time at work or working on work.
Yet stress and burnout cause unhappy lives, unhappy families, and lead to all sorts of health-related illnesses. On the other hand, happier people are healthier, more satisfied with their own lives, their relationships, and tend to be more successful in their careers.
They produce a ripple effect; happy people attract more happy people
