Course Overview

The single greatest advantage in the modern economy is a happy and engaged workforce. However, Gallup's globalworkplace report (2013) revealed that only 13% of employees are ‘actively engaged’ at work. The vast majority of employees (63% worldwide and 76% in Singapore) are ‘not engaged’ and not emotionally connected to their workplace and are thus less likely to invest in organisational goals or outcomes. 

Both Agility and Engagement are a function of employee happiness. Companies therefore need ‘The Happiness Advantage’. A decade of research proves that happiness raises nearly every business and educational outcome; employees are more creative, productive, less fatigued and likely to be more resilient in a rapidly changing world.

This programme provides a blueprint for increasing employee engagement, creativity and agility by tapping into people's intrinsic motivations.
