workplace is changing- people are searching for greater purpose and meaning, both in
their lives and their careers. Work / Life Balance (and even spirituality) has become a key driver for a growing number of people.

stress, and are simply more productive. The new bottom line shows that increased
morale, energy and spirit lead to greater productivity.
