Many workplaces now realize that happy employees are great for the bottom line and are trying to act accordingly, but they keep making one fundamental mistake: They try to make their employees happier by doing things for them. But as we know from positive psychology we are actually happier when we get to do things for others. That’s a crucial insight but how exactly can your workplace apply it? Club Need is a fantastic new concept started by Calvin Johnson that helps organizations find ways to do good in the world by matching them with specific volunteering or charity opportunities.

Yoga Classes And Stress Trainings Do NOTHING For Employees! Here’s Why – And What Companies Should Do Instead.

A fascinating brand new study by William Fleming shows that sending employees off to yoga classes, mindfulness lessons or stress management trainings has NO positive effects. In some cases it actually backfires and makes things worse. That’s a shame because companies keep focusing on these individual-level interventions in their attempts to make employees less stressed and more happy and motivated at work. Which is not only a waste of time and money but also distracts companies from doing things that actually do work. In this video I talk to Dr. Louise Lambert about the study. We cover: What ..read more

Louise updated everyone on the latest research on happiness at work and Maja talked about the amazing culture at Vega It.

Free Online Talk: Why Perks Don’t Work
The Chief Happiness Officer Blog
by Alexander

How do you create a happy workplace? For too many workplaces, the answer to that question begins and ends with perks. The list of possible perks that I have seen workplaces offer is nearly endless with things like gyms, massages, snacks, team events, nap pods, pizza parties, team building events, discount deals and yoga classes. These things can cost a lot of money and take a lot of time to organize so it really is a shame that they do not work. At all! In fact, when companies get them wrong, they often backfire and make employees less happy and motivated. In this free online talk I will talk ..read more

Yikes!

Yikes! Check out this comment on one of my videos: I just had a psychotic adult babyman scream directly into my face because I refused to give him a discount on an item that was already marked 75% off. I asked Karen to leave the store and of course he refused and asked to speak to the manager (even though I am a manager), so I called security and went on a break to cool down. Anyway, I was sitting in my car and I see this imbecile leaving with his prize. The strange thing was that the security person was walking with him and then shook his hand before they parted ways. In the end Karen got w ..read more
