In one of our podcast episodes in which we host some of the key-note speakers of the Work 2.0 London event, we had a fantastic discussion with Bruce Daisley of Twitter. We spoke with him about how he became passionate about studying and researching happiness at work, as well as what was his main motive in understanding the direction in which work is evolving.
According to Bruce’s research we tend to laugh less at our workplaces, and work no longer creates rewarding experiences anymore. Bruce is on a mission to advocate for a modern workplace; one that provides meaningful connections, creativity and increased productivity to all.
