Achieving Workplace Excellence

Taking Care of Business: The Happiness Factor
No matter where you work or what you do, we are all in pursuit of happiness. On average, we spend 90,000 hours at work during our lifetime. No wonder phrases like “happiness at work”, “meaningful work”, and “purpose” have become a business imperative.  Studies show that happy people are less stressed, get promoted more frequently, and are more creative, productive and healthy. And, the most powerful source of happiness comes from purpose – when we know we have done something that we believe matters–to others, to society, and to ourselves. 
This month we hear from three inspiring purpose driven business women who help us explore the “happiness factor” in business. Kathleen Bellicchi, Ellen Slattery, and Patricia Raskin – all who have value-driven business models and missions that strengthen their brand, culture, and products and connection to community. 
Leave this breakfast inspired to leverage the happiness factor in your daily life and at work to create a greater sense of value, purpose and connection!
