Why should you become a
Chief Happiness Officer?

There is growing evidence that when your employees are happy, your organization thrive.  

Please consider just a few key statistics.
One study found that happy employees are up to 20% more productive than unhappy employees. Furthermore, when it comes to salespeople, happiness has an even greater impact,
 raising sales by 37%.

So happy employees are good news for organizations: The stock prices of Fortune’s “100 Best Companies to Work for" rose 14% per year from 1998 to 2005, while companies not on the list only reported a 6% increase.

In addition, happier companies have an easier time attracting and retaining talent.  


That is why companies should not consider happiness a frivolity. It is a key part of building a successful and sustainable organisation.
