ANI  |  Bengaluru (Karnataka)[India] 

Straight Drive venture founded by Trivedy hosted the second in the series of global happy workplace conclaves in Bengaluru at Centric, MG Road 4.30 pm onwards.

The maiden event was held in and will be rolled out in and by end of the year.

The event will witness a galaxy of eminent speakers including a keynote address by Harish Bijoor, Brand Guru and Founder, Harish Bijoor Consults Inc.; Bikram Walia, Director, HR, Amazon India; Sujit Patil, Head of Corporate Communications, Godrej Industries; Leza Parker, from Singapore; and Sangeeta Chacko, Head - Corporate Communications, Percept Media to name a few.

They will present powerful, practical and personal mantras to achieve a 'happy and high-performance work' state.

HyWe was incepted in December 2017 following Mukund's personal experience grappling with toxic work environment at the highest level. His post recounting his harrowing experience went viral with 30 lakh followers from across the globe joining the conversation.

"HyWe currently has 1000 followers and is expected to grow to 1 million followers by end of year. HyWe will become a world movement for happy workplace through a three-pronged strategy - providing legal and psychiatric aid to survivors; suggesting policy level changes and guidelines to the government and offering companies solutions and means to improve diagnostics," said

"People do not openly talk about workplace toxicity. A recent survey by and states nearly half the employees in suffer from stress. Proportion of workers at high risk of suicide due to unmanaged stress has grown from 2-4% in 2014 of all councelling cases to 8 % in 2018. I hope HyWe events will achieve what Padman did for menstrual hygiene. Encourage constructive dialogue on workplace toxicity and stress," he added.

HyWe is currently partnering with senior consultants, popular research agencies and academic institutions to design a scientific framework to measure happiness quotient at workplace.
