Happy Employees = Better Employees
And that’s good for business!

“Michelle masterfully aligned her message with our theme and tailored her talk to fit with our corporate culture.”

– Haylie DiJiusto, Sr. Manager, Travel & Meeting Services

Corporate North American employees with a national staffing company focused on driving a culture of happy employees.

This client required a message that would go beyond supporting the overall theme of the event, “Happy Employees are Better Employees”, to make a persuasive case proving that workplace happiness truly matters to employees and to the long-term health of an organization.

BMC Speakers suggested and contracted speaker, Michelle Gielan – founder, Institute for Applied Positive Research.

Michelle’s message, Broadcasting Happiness, Creating Success through Positive Engagement, underscored that broadcasting happiness fuels performance, builds work optimism, builds positive engagement and builds support provision.

A few of her powerful, simple action ideas:

  1. Power Lead – Start conversations by saying something positive and meaningful.
  2. Fact Check – Isolate the negative/stressful thought, list the known facts, list the fueling facts.
  3. Honest Thanks: Send a 2-minute email praising & thanking a co-worker.


  • Research proved employee happiness is pivotal to organizational success.
  • Research proved that the company’s efforts will result in benefits across several fronts, including productivity, recruitment and retention.
  • The bottom line: Workplace happiness matters to employees and to the long-term health of an organization. Michelle proved that most importantly, leaders have the power to influence it.
