Unlocking Happiness for a Healthy, Higher-Performing Work and Life

Can you really be both “happy” and “at work”? We all want to be happy, engaged, and satisfied with our job or in the career we’ve chosen. Loving what it is we do makes us less stressed, decreases boredom, increases motivation, and has an overall positive impact on our personal lives. As workplace leaders, we want happier employees. These employees are more engaged, approach their work with enthusiasm, and bring a hunger to innovate.

Sadly, only 13% of the global workforce is happy and engaged. Despite all the stats, happiness strategies are often low on the workplace priority list. With 90% of our waking hours spent at work in our lifetime; this is a massive problem. It isn’t just costing employers – studies show that employee disengagement is making us lonely, anxious, and harming our health.

Jennifer Moss believes we can solve this well-being crisis and has the research and data-backed insights to show us how. Drawing on her experiences as a behavioural sciences consultant and member of the UN Global Happiness Council, Jennifer provides audiences with practical advice to become happier, healthier, and higher-performing people both professionally and personally.

She recently won a journalism award for her piece on loneliness in the workplace, and her article, “When Passion Leads to Burnout” for Harvard Business Review was one of their top five most popular articles of 2019. 

In 2020, Jennifer conducted research related to well-being in a crisis and she just completed a joint research study with Harvard Business Review that analyzed the impact of Covid-19 on workplace well-being. She was able to gather data from 46 countries which has informed her strategic approach to managing well-being now and in the post-Covid world. Her next book, The Burnout Epidemic, will be published by Harvard Business Press, launching globally in 2021.

She received the Canadian Innovator of the Year in her previous role as Cofounder of Plasticity Labs, a happiness and workplace wellness research, technology, and consulting company. Plasticity provided organizations with the tools to tap into individual sentiment and increase at-work satisfaction, with measurable results. Jennifer also received the International Female Entrepreneur of the Year Award for her work engaging and encouraging young women to lead in tech even if they can’t code.

Jennifer went from Silicon Valley working in PR during the rapid rise of social media, to leader of a social innovation tech startup, award-winning author and entrepreneur.  She was on President Obama’s California social team; a massively disruptive and historical moment for political galvanizing. This effort earned her an invitation to his inauguration and a Public Service Award from the Office of President Obama.

In her personal life, her sports hall of fame husband was diagnosed with a life-threatening rare autoimmune disease.  They hacked his healing focusing on being grateful, and learning the neuroscience of mood and performance.
