The Science of Happiness at Work™
Happiness at work is strongly correlated with productivity. Better health, longevity in a job, increased energy, motivation, confidence and recognition are just a few of the benefits. That’s why it matters for both employees and employers – it’s a joint responsibility.
We believe that Happiness at Work is a mindset which enables action to maximize performance and achieve potential. Emotions indicate that actions are on the right track, but mindset matters most. This mindset results in positive attitude, optimism, resilience and courage – or psychological capital.
Psychological capital is an essential part of social capital, which in turn contributes greatly to human capital. And that of course affects the bottom line.
What’s exciting about this new science is that we have really strong data showing just how clear the financial benefits that support the Science of Happiness at Work are.
Jessica Pryce-Jones is the world’s leading expert in raising productivity through The Science of Happiness at Work™ – as explored in her new book ‘Happiness at Work: Maximizing Your Psychological Capital For Success’. Her cutting-edge research over the last six years has resulted in this highly effective diagnostic tool for individuals, teams and organisations.
