Improving engagement and morale through better workplace relationships

with Prof. Raj Raghunathan

Happiness researchers agree that the single most powerful determinant of happiness is the quality and health of our relationships.

Gallup’s most important takeaway after 50 years of research across over 120 countries is this: “People don’t leave organizations; people leave people,” suggesting that the relationship we have with our coworkers is the most crucial determinant of our happiness and productivity at work.

How to assess the health of your (and your team’s) relationships at work, and what impact this might have on your (and the team’s) satisfaction, engagement, and morale at work.

Understanding of some simple and effective research-based ways of improving the health of workplace relationships.

Prof. Raj Raghunathan studies the impact that people’s judgments and decisions have on their own happiness and fulfillment. Raj’s work has appeared in leading marketing journals, and been cited in several mass media outlets, including The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, Austin American Statesman, The Houston Chronicle, and Self magazine.

Raj Raghunathan is the author of “If You’re So Smart, Why Aren’t You Happy?” and a professor at the University of Texas McCombs School of Business, where he relies on themes from psychology, behavioral sciences, decision theory and marketing to explain consumption behavior.

In the video you can see an excerpt from the Masterclass "Happiness at Work", held by Raj in Sofia in 2018. The excerpt we offer here is about relationships at work and their impact on productivity.
