(the right kind of course -for example a pat on the shoulder, a shake of a hand and hugs) These small interactions impact positively on mood, innovation and productivity in a big way. If this way of working is going to be for the long-term we need to look at different ways to we can create happy cultures virtually.
In this opening keynote Stephanie Davies will introduce the five drivers of happiness in the workplace and how we can adapt these for our new digi-world.
