KEYNOTE “How to screw up happiness at work?”
by Griet Deca, Chief Happiness of Tryangle
About this keynote:
“Work?! Working makes me incredibly tired! After all, my employer is only interested in making a profit and doesn’t really care about his employees. I’m just counting down to the day I can start my retirement!” Chief Happiness Griet Deca definitely does not agree with statements like these.
Although there’s plenty of goodwill at both sides of the table, a lot of employers and even more employees are unhappy at work. That may come as a surprise but it’s not: unconsciously, we often screw up happiness at work leaving a trace of disappointment and stress. Let’s talk about those happiness killers and discover how we can transform them into happiness boosters.
After proposing a scientific definition of happiness at work, Griet shares a number of common business practices she’s encountered over the years. Unfortunately, there are a lot of unintended happiness killers to be spotted. Which is truly a shame if you know that happiness at work has a solid ROI for the employee, the team leader, and the organization.
