The Workplace Happiness Formula presented by Julie Bartkus
What does it take to create a motivated, happy team? During this session, you'll discover a formula that you can put into place immediately to help you ATTRACT and RETAIN the team of your dreams. If you're struggling with absenteeism, tardiness, turnover, gossip, complaining, and blaming and you're ready to detox your workplace so everyone (including you) comes to work feeling happy - you'll want to grab a front-row seat and discover The Workplace Happiness Formula. For over 20 years , Julie Bartkus has been confidentially surveying every level of staff in child care programs across the globe. During this session, she is pulling back the curtain and revealing the results to you. You'll gain an understanding of what really motivates your staff, what attracts new staff members, and why child care professionals check out and quit.
