Doug Hickok became an Amazon Bestselling Author with his new book, The Pursuit of Happiness at Work. Amazon listed the book at Number 1 among all books in the Communications in Management category and #2 in the Entrepreneurship Management category in the Kindle Store. It was also listed as the Number 1 Hot New Release in multiple business book categories.
In The Pursuit of Happiness at Work, Hickok reveals specific steps to create happiness in an organization and the eight most important things that workers need in order to be happy at work. He also makes a business case for entrepreneurs to create a happy environment for themselves as well as their employees, which his research shows can increase revenue and profits by 20 percent to 40 percent. The book includes a number of scorecards and worksheets that can be used by the reader to analyze the degree of happiness in an organization and point to actions needed to create a happier, more productive organization.
Hickok said, “I read a lot of research developed by serious thinkers around the world and I was struck by the fact that every research summary that I read pointed out that happiness at work contributes to tangible, good outcomes, no matter what type or size of organization is involved.” He continued, “When people are happy at work, they do their best work, they get along well with each other, and they stick with the organization, all of which adds up to increased productivity and profits.”
The Pursuit of Happiness at Work is available on Amazon in eBook, paperback, and hardcover versions at https://www.amazon.com/dp/B06ZY2WTGR.
