I recently spoke about happiness at work in New York and after the event, one attendee sent me this email:
Thanks for coming to speak to the group in New York last month. Glad I got the chance to finally meet you after reading your blog for so many years.
When I got back to work the next day, I told my department about your talk and showed them some of the videos on your site. My boss, inspired by the overall message of Arbejdsglaede and amused by the hand-drawn video , bought a copy of your book for everyone in our group. Here is a photo of us with our crisp new copies!
Most of us are quite new, as our company is growing fast. We’re hoping to build a happy, productive workplace and will be using your book as one of the prime resources. Hopefully, we’ll soon develop a reputation as a great place to work, in addition to being known for the word we do [matching bone marrow donors to Leukemia patients in need].
Thanks for all you do, keep up the good work.
And right back at ya, Prescott!
I recently did an interview about happiness at work in non-profits . Sadly I’ve found that while the work people do there is often very rewarding and meaningful, they are not always very happy workplaces.
You can read more about Delete Blood Cancer and the amazing work they do here. I highly urge you to check it out and to register as a donor today. You could save someone’s life.
