I just wrapped up a quick pow-wow with our own Derek Irvine and the charming and brilliant Jessica Miller-Merrell over at Blogging4Jobs and I have came straight here to blab all their secrets to you. Shh!!
First… go here and register for the webinar they are hosting on Thursday 10/24 at 11am on the important topic of Employee Happiness. Seriously, go. I’ll wait. When you get back I’ll tell you why.
Back? So here’s the skinny. I’ve had a sneak preview of the webinar and I can tell you that Jessica and Derek will be sharing a lot of compelling statistics and insightful stories on the growing topic of employee workplace happiness. They will cover:
- what happiness at work really is
- what it means to your bottom line
- how to measure it
- how to cultivate it
- how to screen new hires for happiness potential
That’s pretty much the whole ball of wax when it comes to happiness, which is why I think you should tune in. (Plus you can get an HRCI credit.) You’ll also find out which country is tracking happiness as a gross national product, what makes employees into sad pandas, how the brain processes change, and how key HR players define happiness at work. It’s great stuff, I promise.
Next month, I will also be co-hosting a webinar with Thad Peterson over at Talent Management Magazine that takes a similar in-depth look at the science of gratitude. So stay tuned for that, too!
