About the course


The single greatest advantage in the modern economy is a happy and engaged workforce. However, a Gallup's global workplace 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.

Engagement is a function of employee happiness. Companies therefore need ‘The Happiness Advantage’. A decade of research proves that happiness raises nearly every business and educational outcomes; employees are more creative, productive, less fatigue and likely to receive a promotion or pay raise.

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