“Happyholics” (Sharon, 2015)
A happyholic is someone who is looking for happiness and meaning in his or her work. Someone who is looking for ‘more’, for something ‘bigger’; something that cannot be satisfied with material things. In this book (in Dutch only), Sharon describes Generation Y as people who find a pleasant working atmosphere more important than anything else. He states that young employees you invite today for an interview today will be tomorrow gone, unless invest in their daily happiness.
The new generation of workers is not addicted to work but to happiness. They are full of energy but they are committed only if you make sure that they are enjoying themselves. “Happyholics” expresses the voice of a new generation. It tells you about what young people expect from you as an employer, and how you can profit from them an aging society from them. These happyholics are worth gold!
