Why happiness at work matters – And what to do about it!
Annika Månsson, Fondatrice, Happy at Work 

What’s the link between happiness and productivity? Studies show that people who feel unhappy at work experience more stress and conflicts, are less productive and get sick more often. Studies also show that happy workplaces do much better than unhappy ones. They make more money, achieve their goals more rapidly and deal better with change.
But how do we develop happiness at work? What does it take to create happy workplaces? Who is responsible for that? Get the answers in this inspiring conference, where we reveal what happiness at work is, why it matters and how to get it. 

Speaker Details: Vita: Annika Månsson, Founder of Happy at Work ltd, has built up over 10 years of experience in a wide range of multicultural sectors in more than 12 countries. Expert in Happiness at work, leadership, multi-cultural interpersonal communication and emotional intelligence, she inspires teams and individuals through her keynotes, trainings and coaching in companies like Novartis, Scandinavian Airlines, FIBA, Baxter, Adecco and many others around the world.
