    Forget everything else happening at your job and ask yourself one simple question.

    How happy are you at work?

    If the answer to that question is solidly positive, all the daily struggles are worth it. If the answer is negative, none of the subordinate successes really matters much.

    But what makes a person happy at work?

    For the past five years, Rodd Wagner and a team of researchers at BI Worldwide have been answering that question by analyzing the responses of employees around the world to some provocative questions. Rodd will share the 12 elements that emerged, 12 elements that drive happiness and company performance.

A diverse workforce challenges the status-quo, brings creativity and innovation to an organization, strengthens its culture.
