Delivering happiness?

A bit corporate (possibly), but the article that goes with the piece is interesting for the fact that it links a higher purpose as part of the workplace.

Here's the quote from the article:

"A study published last year in Psychological Science suggests that having a sense of purpose can literally add years to your life. This raises an interesting question: if employees feel that their work has purpose, might that add years to the life of their organization?"
