Happiness in Tech Companies

Ego, Work,

Meetups are Techfestival’s co-created events: Hosted and curated by organizers from diverse tech communities – open to all curious minds!

NB: Capacities are limited. Please RSVP to register, and arrive in good time to secure your spot!

Most people spend nearly ⅓ of their lives in the workplace and yet, workplace happiness is often overlooked in the face of a focus on profit, bureaucracy, and tight rules. In the tech world, an increasing number of people are starting to work in startups or on their own, moving away from traditional corporate mindsets.

In this Meetup, we ask whether it is possible to find a “magic potion” that combines creativity, a sense of ownership and real happiness in the workplace while working for a “big” company – or is such feelings of happiness and creativity only possible in a free-spirited startup environment?
