Cheerful scientific take on employee contentment

The concept of ''happiness'' only recently entered mainstream business thought, although wise executives have long understood the importance of having happy employees. Creating a happier workplace makes everyone's job easier and dramatically increases the bottom line. In this blueprint for corporate health, authors Dan Baker, Cathy Greenberg and Collins Hemingway explain why organizations with empowered and motivated workforces can expect to exceed growth expectations. We strongly recommend this sensible and indispensable guide that's jam-packed with illustrative examples of the best - and worst - business practices in America. Come on - get happy, for fun and profit.

It's peppered with interesting real-life drama, as we see how some companies have failed miserably in understanding and implementing these important concepts. Companies of all sizes will be well advised to make sure that all of their managers understand and accept the principles so well explained in this book. It's a recipe for success!
