The International Day of Happiness is here

– times are tough, how can you make your employees happier today?


The United Nations declared March 20th the International Day of Happiness.

The aim is to create a happier world for people everywhere.

Most adults worldwide spend more time (awake!) at work than anywhere else.

So if you’re unhappy at work, you’re unhappy for a huge portion of your day. That’s quite a depressive thought, right?

For professional fulfilment, for people to feel happy and proud when they retire, workplaces worldwide need to start talking about how we can improve at work.

How can we get more people to wake up in the morning and feel good about going to work?

What role can you, and your company play?

What is the International Day of Happiness?

Real change will require us all to work together in the workplace.

We, as a society, cannot afford to have this much human talent go to waste and see company profits drop because of the quality of workplaces, worldwide.

In most cases, this will also have a negative impact on the quality of people’s lives.

And this is what the international day of happiness is all about. To advance the global happiness movement we need more managers to step up and get talking about mental wellbeing at work, and how we can create more workplace happiness.

What makes us feel fine, great or OK when we are at work?

What separates good from great companies is that they act on the feedback they get from employees.

And improve together!

And that all starts with leaders who are interested in actively listening.

So that’s our tip for the International Day Of Happiness. Carve out some time in your busy calendar to simply listen to your employees :)
