24th Feb. 2015 – “Happiness is a Serious Business” – BridgeTalks
“Happiness is a Serious Business”
with Nic Marks
Tuesday, 24 February 2015, 7pm – 9pm
The Courthouse Hotel, Central London
Understanding employees’ well-being and happiness can have serious benefits for organisations. Based upon work carried out for the Government Office of Science, Nic presents a dynamic model of organi- sational well-being that managers can easily understand. Evidence is cited from the latest research into positive psychology and systems theory about how enhancing well-being at work can improve not only the bottom line but also create a more resilient organisation.
