The groundbreaking research reveals how organisations can help employees boost their overall wellbeing - from their satisfaction with their careers to their financial security and level of community involvement. As it turns out, changing an organisation's culture to help employees better manage and improve their wellbeing over time can result in substantial financial returns for the organisation. Based on a Gallup study of more than 150 countries representing 98% of the world's population, Rath and Harter identified five essential elements of life that transcend countries, faiths, and cultures: Career Wellbeing: How you occupy your time/liking what you do each day ; Social Wellbeing: Relationships and love in your life ; Financial Wellbeing: Managing your economic life to reduce stress and increase security ; Physical Wellbeing: Good health and enough energy to get things done on a daily basis ; Community Wellbeing: Engagement and involvement in the area where you live.
