The Good News -
With the foregoing in mind it is recommended you carry out our HappyMeter within your business / organisation / personally. A cumulative report with recommendations will be issued to an identified stakeholder within the business once all those taking part in the HappyMeter have completed the online questionnaire. Personal HappyMeter results are confidential and will NEVER be shared with anyone.
Within the business / organisations, the HappyMeter will measure (amongst other key areas) individual and collective levels in relation to:
Values – whether individuals’ values are lived and whether the businesses values compliment / are in conflict with personal values;
Personal and group happiness levels;
Elements of the culture relating to happiness;
Energy levels and ability to focus;
Effectiveness & productivity;
Elements relating to individuals personal power, potential, and self mastery being nurtured, lived, and promoted;
Energy levels of individuals and the affect of said levels;
Happiness in relation to unwarranted absenteeism;
Happiness levels in relation to illness.
Negative responses and outcomes to the foregoing (as revealed in the HappyMeter results) will negatively impact productivity, health, focus, creativity, satisfaction, effectiveness, commitment, motivation, energy, happiness and confidence levels, and self belief, and MUCH more! With this in mind it is essential you carry out the HappyMeter within your business.
