We are monitoring the current Coronavirus outbreak very closely. Here is our current policy, regarding our training centre, our online learning programmes and what to do if you are not able to attend.

Hi, we are Happy

We are leading a movement to create happy, empowered and productive workplaces.

How can we help you and your people to find joy in at least 80% of your work?

More about Happy

We are currently running a range of interactive online programmes alongside a select programme of classroom sessions — so we can accommodate all learning styles and requirements.

For those who feel comfortable coming to Happy's training centre in London, we have re-introduced a limited range of classroom training sessions for Excel Level 1, Excel Level 2 and Excel Level 3.

We have made our training centre COVID safe with a range of measures including:

  • Temperature check and sanitise on arrival are compulsory for all (staff and learners)
  • We ask all to check in using the Track + Trace app on arrival (staff and learners)
  • Visor masks are provided for learners and staff, and we request that they be worn at all times
  • Gloves will also be available (optional)
  • Hand sanitiser is available in the training room, the café area and bathrooms
  • Social distancing in rooms, hallway and café area
  • No sharing of booklets and stationery
  • All furniture and door handles are sanitised twice a day, as well as any furniture moved between tables
  • We operate a clean air conditioning system with no recirculation of air throughout the building

However, we continue to run a programme of online interactive sessions, both short 90-minute and full-days of learning, for those who currently prefer to learn at home.

For the latest government guidance, please visit the gov.uk website.

We will continue to monitor the situation and will advise all clients if the situation changes. We may have to change our classroom sessions to an online session held on the same day, due to government guidance or the number of bookings we receive.

If you have any questions or concerns, our friendly team are available Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm. You can leave a message on 020 7375 7300 or email us at hello@happy.co.uk.
