Happiness in

Human Resources

HR is a catalyst for your organisation and the driver of one of its most important assets – the culture that underpins sales, customer service and leadership teams that excel. We give your HR teams the tools to fulfil that role.


HR is a constantly evolving business function, gone are the days where HR is viewed as an administrative support function. The modern human resource department sits central to the overall company strategy and is tasked with the critical role of enabling a happy, engaged workplace.

Successful organizations are becoming more adaptive, resilient, quick to change direction and customer-centred. The most successful HR experts put their employee’s wellbeing and happiness at the centre of their decisions. They are a strategic partner, an employee sponsor, advocate and a change mentor.

This workshop is built to engage your HR team, helping them to develop the skillset and understanding required to deliver these demanding responsibilities, taking ownership of corporate culture development.


Probably more than any other business function, HR understands the importance and value of creating a happy, positive and engaged workforce. Here are just a few of the places where HR can have an impact, but owning organisational culture:

  • Unhappy employees are costing on average $20.5 billion a year in the UAE in lost productivity
  • The average cost of unhappiness is $4,300 per person across a business, annually
  • Companies with happier employees outperform their competition by 20%
  • Happier employees take 10 times less sick leave
