Why should a business care about happiness? 

Return to latest news

We have all experienced the benefits and positive effects of happiness in our lives. However, have you ever thought about how you could consciously increase your levels of happiness in the workplace? We spend a big part of our lives in the office and yet, work environments are rarely associated with well-being and happiness. 

Tal Ben-Shahar, Co-founder of Potentialife, tells us more about the relationship between success and happiness. There is a common, and false, belief that success leads to happiness, when in fact the relationship between the two is the exact opposite: it is happiness that leads to success, at work and beyond. For employees, businesses and organizations it's worth taking action. Increasing levels of well-being boosts creativity and productivity, and simultaneously fosters teamwork and motivation. Happy organizations are empowered and better-positioned to attract, retain and cultivate their talent.
