Happy at work

It is with great pride that we can announce our next conference about happiness at work. The conference takes place on May 26 from 9:30-5PM at the Danish Design Center in Copenhagen.

We have a great speaker lineup, including:

  • Kim Axelsen, CEO of AFA JCDecaux.
  • Knud Herbert SÝrensen, HR Director of Middelfart Sparekasse (the happiest workplace in Denmark)

The themes of the conference are:

  1. Happiness at work in practice: How some of the world’s happiest workplaces do it and what results they get.
  2. Happiness at work in a recession: Why making employees happy is the best way out of a recession and how to do it.
  3. Strengths at work: How to identify and apply personal strengths at work.

Most of the conference will be held in Danish. You can read all about it here (in Danish).

  1. @ Karl:
    Yes, we plan to film the speakers and hopefully will be able to make them availeble as streaming videos ands/or on a DVD :o) So far, I looks like two speakers will be speaking in english. More on the video part at a latter date.

    In other news, we’re just now entering a partnership with two expert IT-consultant specializing in agile development, and I hope we will gain great experiences and insights on running Happy IT Projects! :o)

  2. This looks like a great thing to be happening right now. Moral being so down at companies across the globe more of these types of get togethers should be happening.
