Create happy and great workplaces

Imagine a workplace where people are energized and motivated by being in control of the work they do. Imagine they are trusted and given freedom, within clear guidelines, to decide how to achieve their results. Imagine they are able to get the life balance they want. Imagine they are valued according to the work they do, rather than the number of hours they spend at their desk.

Wouldn’t you want to work there? Wouldn’t it also be the place that would enable you to work at your best and most productive?

This website is all about creating a movement to turn every workplace into happy and great workplaces.

The Happy Manifesto, written by Henry Stewart, the founder of Happy,  is the definitive guide for anyone who wants to transform productivity, loyalty and innovation within their organizations. Learn how to create happy workplaces by reading this book and also by using the advice and guidance this website aims to provide you.
