Is there a need for International Men’s Day? This may come as a surprise for some, but most of us know that men’s health is as critical as women’s. But the reality is that behind the macho façade, men need as much care and nurturing like the rest of us. Every man plays multiple roles such as caring father, loving husband, adorable brother, happy boyfriends. Most importantly, they are sensitive human beings though they may not wear their emotions on their sleeves. Men are from Mars and Women from Venus is history Indian...

5 Hallmarks of a Happy Workplace

Happiness and health are like two sides of a circle; inherently linked yet decidedly independent. As millennial work environments move from erstwhile work-like-a-dog-until-you-collapse establishments to setups deep-seated in wellness and wellbeing, it is apparent that there’s more to corporate contentment than sky-high salaries and princely promotions. But how much does happiness really matter to the success of a business, you may wonder. More than you think. Happy employees tend to have a more favorable disposition. They are also invaluable fountains of innovation, creativity, productivity, and dedication. And as a bonus, they are likely to stay with you long-term. It...
