Creating a Culture of Happiness: The Link Between Happy Employees and a Thriving Organization

Presenter – David Schramm
Professor in Family Studies at Utah State University


Workshop Overview:

Business in the new millennium requires a different framework for success than what may have worked in the past. Today, top-performing organizations are also the best places to work. Instead of being plagued with bad morale, low productivity, and even strikes, thriving organizations are full of happy employees who readily defend the employer and tend to consider their coworkers — including management — as family. Recent research confirms that a culture of happiness, by generating numerous benefits, contributes greatly to the prosperity of an organization.

The good news is that employee happiness can be enhanced through targeted wellness programs. Research shows such improvements can have a significant positive impact on nearly all aspects of business — even lowering healthcare costs. 
Based on the recent literature, this presentation will explore how a culture of happiness can contribute to the success of your organization; and will provide 10 Happy Hacks to simple, yet practical, things employees can implement in their personal lives that will improve both positivity at home and productivity at work.
