The Science of Happiness at Work TM
Many people are claiming that Talent Retention is the new frontier of business.
Whilst this may be an aspect of business that must be addressed, there is an even more important aspect of the productivity and performance puzzle; Psychological Capital = your staff’s “mental operating systems” and “mental assets”.
A Workplace Revolution is occurring in many smart workplaces, and will continue into the next decade. We are now out of the agricultural, industrial and information age… we are into the Experience and Human Element Age.
Your PRIMARY source of sustainability, competitiveness, innovation and efficiency and success is your Psychological Capital. Is your company a happy place to work?
Imagine if you were the manager or leader that discovered that 41% of your staff were ready to start looking around for new jobs and 18% had already started taking action to find alternative employment? What’s your solution? How do you transform your workplace….fast?
