Is happiness at work important to you? I’m guessing the answer is yes. It probably is very important. After all, we spend so much of our life working. But after a weekend, do you feel excited about going to work on a Monday morning, or does the thought make you feel ill?
At the recent CFA Institute European Investment Conference in Prague, Alexander Kjerulf told us what he thinks makes people happy at work. At this conference, where industry thought leaders addressed an audience of investment professionals on topics including the eurozone crisis and the latest investment techniques, it was an unusual session. The topic was just as far from the minds of delegates as it was close to their hearts. Kjerulf, however, was well placed to show the audience the way, as he is the chief happiness officer of Woohoo inc. Yes, you read that right: He’s a chief happiness officer, and our happiness is very much his business.
