Workplace Happiness is Big Business: Happiness leads to Success

One of my mentors, Nic Marks, has such a good Ted talk from May this year.  He nails it when describing how we are wired to think that success will deliver happiness…but it is the other way around!  Happiness actually drives success!  This message is so true to the core of what we are doing at Happywork.

Workplace happiness delivers:

  • 54% better staff retention rates
  • 30% better productivity
  • 3X times more creativity

It’s Official: I’m a Happiness Works Practitioner

What a great day indeed.  Nic Marks and the team at Happiness Works have been great to work with and the survey and tools are SO AWESOME!  The user interface is cutting edge, the science behind it from over 10 years of use is rock solid, and users getting their own results compared to the national average is revolutionary!  I am so pumped to try it with my team and learn how I can use it to help others.

Happywork Starts!

Happywork synonyms may well include: aspiration, engagement, collaboration, creativity, flexibility, agility, energy, persistence, resilience, breakthrough, innovation, achievement, esteem and celebration.  Making things better just feels good.  Making things better is also a large part of bottom line results.  While some approaches to organizational success might focus in other areas, nothing can beat happywork.  It becomes bedrock in the culture.  You can see success about 10 minutes after you engage.  People look you in the eye, smile warmly, and say hello.  That’s one way you know you have happywork.  This type of happywork culture is very strongly linked to bottom line results – such as 30% higher productivity, 54% better staff retention, and 3X more creativity and innovation.
