ISNED cares about well-being in general and how to apply it to corporate environments.

This is not just by happiness quotes or measuring the happiness status but involves all corporate processes to increase happiness at work. As a by-product happy employees increase productivity as well but in the first place it is about the individual person and its well-being.
