I am always on the hunt for videos and papers that illustrate the benefits of happier workers and give best practices on how to do it.
In Vishen Lakhiani‘s video ‘Why Happiness is the New Productivity (The Story of Mindvalley)‘ https://youtu.be/T8ZFU4FoNvY, he gives some great background on what creates happiness at work including some nice commentary on the state of Flow. He also provides examples from his company MindValley where they have put into place some of the same “awesomeness” that Happywork aspires to deliver to our customers.
Vishen reveals how they created a gratitude website for employees, have a Friday Awesomeness Report, a dog as the Director of Public Relations, guests that come in to attend company meetings, and taking 10% off the top of the profits of the month and re-distribute to employees, and…wait for it…daily corporate group senior team guided meditations! They even have a “sweet sugar love machine” to help all 50 employees to be able to reward, recognize and appreciating each other. There are a number of other best practices he reveals.Everything Vishen and MindValley have going on is SO AMAZING!! I endeavor to attend their Awesomefest some day…mmmmmmmm. Who’s with me?
