Why GDP is no longer the most effective measure of economic success

Lord Richard Layard, a professor at the London School of Economics, has been a pioneer in this area, and believes the government should prioritise policies that boost happiness over growth. His research has gone on to influence international efforts to track happiness, such as the UN's World Happiness Report, which provides an annual snapshot of how happy people around the world perceive themselves to be.

The World Happiness Report 2019, produced by the United Nations Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN). Editors John F. Helliwell, Richard Layard, Jeffrey Sachs.

Bored?, let's look for job happiness

Beyond the fact that each one of us has to look for a concordance between the vocation and the labor field, employers can do a lot to achieve this goal. According to Lord Richard Layard, the elements that integrate work happiness are the same that make people happy in their lives: a sense of belonging, social connections and a purpose or meaning. Understanding what role employers can play in improving the lives of their workers in the face of current challenges is a leadership trait that has extraordinary positive broad-spectrum impacts.
