Says Prajjal Saha, founder and editor-HRKatha, Several aspects of human resourcesmdash; be it policies, framework, or technologymdash; have been discussed at the industry forums. But this is the first time that someone is looking at the softer or rather human side of human resources. Having said that, I would re-emphasise that The Happiness Conclave will delve deep into business strategies and seriously discuss connecting happiness with hard-core business objectives. It is the need of the hour, he added.

At The Happiness Conclave, the panellists will discuss the comparison of happy employees to happy customers; whether it time to have a chief happiness officer on board, or how an organisation can bring in a happy culture at the grass-root level, especially at plants and factories. Besides, there will be interesting case studiesmdash; from the world leading new-age company, an FB retail company and a technology start-up. Each of these case studies will reveal and share the strategy and effort behind their happy work environment.
