The most important asset in any organisation is its employees. While increasing job competition and cost-cutting may drive short-term productivity and results, the impact on people makes these strategies short-sighted. People who feel happy, valued and satisfied at work typically do far better than those who feel pressured and undervalued. Happy employees are more engaged and likely go beyond their job requirements to give their best effort, working harder, more productively and more collaboratively than less happy peers. And this translates directly into better business performance and financial results that are sustainable over time.

This thought-provoking and inspiring session explores:

  • The evidence and business case for positive psychology at work.
  • Harnessing positive emotions to drive employee engagement, performance and wellbeing upwards.
  • Positive approaches to sustain performance in individuals, organisations and teams.
  • Moving from a negative to a positive mindset to get the best out of people.
