Chief Happiness Officers

There are over 1,000 of them listed on LinkedIn’s website according to an article in The Independent.

Execs with the sole focus of making and keeping employees happy.

We’re beginning to learn that the way we feel at work is more important than all the perks some companies offer.

Some companies spend what costs out to be over $10,000 a person in physical perks but words are more effective.

Praise and reward over finding fault.

Flexibility to find balance between work and personal life.

The way you talk to people turns out to be more important than any other perk or consideration.

The British reformer John Ruskin had it right over 150 years ago:

“In order that people may be happy at work, these three things are needed: they must be fit for it, they must not do too much of it, and they must have a sense of success in it.”

There can also be a Chief Happiness Officer at home to make sure the family not only has the best you can afford but can feel valued in a way that has nothing to do with money.
