HAPPINESS AT WORK
  1. Speaker
    Jorge Becerril
    HR Director of Altán Redes

Finding happiness at work is directly related to finding meaning and a sense of matter in and out of the workplace. It is also related to the understanding that failing to achieve this is part of the complexity that human beings and life itself represent. Happiness and unhappiness are not to be perceived as exogenous elements in a given future but as a constant today, in this very moment. More than a presentation, this is a reflection on the actions needed to say, “Thank God it’s Monday” rather than “Thank God it’s Friday”
