Yesterday, Ben Comstock, one of our very own members, led our third roundtable talk about how technology can help create a human-focused workplace. Ben is an expert in that field and co-founder of Office Accord, a tool that helps companies create communities and increase employee happiness.
During this talk, we discussed what a human-focused workplace is, why it is important, and which are the existing tools that help us in creating it.
Why do you think that having happy employees is important? Well, in a nutshell, it’s way better for your business. If you are more into numbers, happy employees are 22% more productive than those who are not, so in the long run, it’s more profitable for your company.

All of this sounds amazing, but if you don’t have a “Happiness department” within your company, you might need a little help from technology.

That’s how technology can help us create a more human-focused workplace.

We hope that you’ve found all the tips that you needed to create a more human-focused workplace; remember that humans always must come first.
