By the time you finish reading this book, you should have a better understanding of what makes life worthwhile.

Over the last decade, Gallup has introduced the concepts of Strengths-Based Leadership and Employee Engagement to thousands of workplaces around the world. In Wellbeing: The Five Essential Elements, Gallup researchers Tom Rath (author of the #1 New York Times Bestseller How Full Is Your Bucket?) and Jim Harter share the results of a landmark study of wellbeing and discuss the implications for both organizations and individuals. Their research reveals how organizations can help employees to boost their well-being from their careers to their finances and community involvement. When organizations are able to change their culture to one that helps employees manage and improve their wellbeing over time, this also results in substantial financial returns for the organization. This quick, conversational read will show managers and leaders how to create positive cultural change in their workplace, one person at a time.
