Telling your staff to stop laughing and get back to work? perhaps not a great place to start with employee wellbeing
This is just one of the topics covered in my podcast with Justin Pagotto from Corporate Spend, a social enterprise that creates and optimises CSR programs at no cost for Australian organisations. You can’t miss the humorous anecdote on how one client realised he often tells his employees to stop laughing and get back to work
For a 19 minute podcast we covered a lot of ground, below is an overview of what we discussed.

We touched on trends in the next few years – for example how more organisations are looking at positive psychology and wellbeing to improve productivity.
How purpose-driven organisations are thriving as they inject social and environmental good to their business, making it part of their DNA as opposed to being on the fringes.
Reference to an organisation who measured the correlation between cultural improvement and revenue growth, for every $1,000 they spent on The Happiness Advantage training they experienced $1,000,000 in revenue growth.
How organisations can go beyond traditional CSR activities and get employees involved in volunteering and deciding where corporate charitable donations go. This has a massive impact on employee well-being and morale.
