Purpose is firmly on the corporate agenda. There can be no higher purpose for a company than contributing to human wellbeing. This book offers an invaluable look at what this means in practice, and shows how the science of happiness, if wisely adopted, can be an inspirational force for a new generation of leaders. Dame Polly Courtice, Director of the University of Cambridge Institute for Sustainability. It's good to see such a direct challenge to the stale world of Corporate Social Responsibility. The Wellbeing Purpose is well-researched, well-written, and well-judged, and I suspect that more companies are already re-thinking their obligations in terms of their ultimate social purpose, and their true responsibilities for both staff and employees. Jonathon Porritt, Founder Director, Forum for the Future.
