Joining together to create happier workplaces

AFHBalance and Your Healthcare staff enjoyed the opportunity this week to listen to an engaging and informative lunchtime talk from Mark Williamson, founder of the charity Action for Happiness. Mark generated discussions amongst staff about how to foster happiness in life generally, and more specifically in the workplace. He identified the three key aspects in creating happier workplaces for staff; a sense of autonomy, positive relationships and making progress.

The event was filmed and will be available to see for staff who were unable to attend the talk. We would like to thank Mark for fitting this event in to his busy schedule. There was a real buzz in the room when staff were talking about things that make them happy. One member of staff said “it has really made me think about the small things I can do to make a difference for myself and my colleagues”. Another said “ it was very practical and brought the subject to life!”
