National Happiness Awards

The awards were launched last year by international learning and development company Laughology willbe held at the Chartered Institute of Professional Development (CIPD).

Workplace happiness is a serious business, and happiness as a commercial concept has gained much traction in recent years. Laughology has been a pioneer in the field and is a market leader in delivering innovative training solutions across the private and public sector.

The National Happiness Awards aim to recognise the serious business of happiness, rather than workplace jokers.

Judges will be looking for examples of positive programmes and actions which promote engagement and support.

“No one can be happy all the time and at Laughology we help organisations creating environments for realistic happiness. This means giving people the skills needed to face challenges positively, t be resilient and to solve problems. The National Happiness Awards are designed to honour the people and places which are making real differences through positive actions and happiness. We know that happier people are healthier and more productive and increasingly businesses are understanding this, which can only be a good thing.”
