Happywork Purpose: 

working smarter with the science of happiness 

We follow a science-based, metric-driven approach to happiness that maximizes results. This is not fluffy stuff; it’s bottom line focused. When our approach is layered in with sound professional and organizational fundamentals, things take off like a rocket!

Happywork is a work-in-progress holacracy or teal organization that exists for our purpose; we are self-managed, flat, process-minimalist, transparent and conscientious.

Travis Shumaker

Happywork LLC was founded by Travis Shumaker on June 18, 2013.  The genesis was a video from Nancy Etcoff about happiness and its surprises.  It caused a massive epiphany as there was little evidence that colleagues in HR or leaders in business take the science of happiness into account.

Happywork focuses on consulting for happier leaders and workers who will in turn Travis Shumakerdeliver higher engagement and key performance indicators.  Over 15 years of HR senior leadership provides Travis with a broad spectrum of successes that empower his approach.  Services are also offered for learning and development, talent building, workplace wellbeing, recruiting and HR back office operations.

Travis is a Practitioner member of Happywork as the Principal Mentor Consultant.  He is an authorized practitioner of the Happiness Works survey for North America. You can reach Travis at happyworktravis@gmail.com.
