Ep. 21: The Pursuit Of Happiness (In The Workplace)

It’s only natural that every CEO would want to create a work environment where they can fully reap these happiness benefits. The unfortunate reality is that not every employee is happy. There are those employees who are unsettled or even disgruntled with their work environment; but, because they don’t want to disappoint their manager, they don’t speak up about their unhappiness.

Today’s guest is Laurence Vanhee, speaking with me from Brussels, Belgium. Laurence is a renown Keynote speaker, author and she is the Chief Happiness Officer at Happyformance, a consulting firm who pioneered the European wave of employee experience.

Today with Laurence will talk about:
– How she revolutionized the employee experience in a Belgian government agency – yes, it is possible even in government!
– What she learned from her corporate, government experience and what led to her Happyformance.
– What are they key elements to Happiness in the workplace and how to design a strategy to reduce burnout and “boreout” among employees.
– We will also discuss the trends around employee experience in Europe.
– How building a successful EX strategy is as much a commitment from the employer as it is from the employees.
