Alexander Kjerulf has introduced hundreds of thousands of people to the Danish word "abejdsglaede," which translates "happiness at work," through his popular blog, The Chief Happiness Officer (http://www.positivesharing.com/), and through his book, Happy Hour is 9 to 5. He makes the case that happy people are more successful than unhappy people and that happy businesses are more efficient than unhappy ones. His research draws on numerous real life examples of companies that have achieved success through happiness. You can listen to his TED talk here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Eq81wx6aPbA). The event will be moderated by Tim Sullivan, editorial director of Harvard Business Review Press. Tim’s book, The Org: The Underlying Logic of the Office, coauthored with Ray Fisman, was just published. Reception and book-signing to follow.
