They will interview leadership gurus about their ideas and leaders of organisations who have used The Happy Manifesto principles to create happy workplaces. Guests include Tom Peters on the importance of empathy in leaders, Helen Sanderson MBE on creating people-centric workplaces, and Cathy Busani of Happy on playing to your strengths at work.

It is aimed at senior leaders and managers who want to transform their workplace, with a focus on giving real examples that people can takeaway and implement at their organisation.

“We are looking for real stories and examples that people can apply in their own workplace. We will be exploring the ways Happy’s clients have implemented the ideas of The Happy Manifesto, as well as others who believe in these ideas,” says Henry Stewart.

The first episode will launch on 12th January, alongside a launch party on 12th January at 17:00 UK time (held on Zoom). Following episodes will be released fortnightly.

“My mission is to create a world where a happy workplace is the norm and not the exception. There are too many organisations out there which are frustrating to work in, and lead to stress and even poor mental health. This podcast is about helping to make that possible – to spread real stories and ideas about how you can create a happy workplace.”

“I didn’t believe that you could have a happy workplace until I experienced it first-hand,” says Maureen Egbe. “Realising that it doesn’t have to be that hard was a game changer for me. I believe it’s time to shake things up to bring Joy everywhere including the workplace. With The Happy Manifesto Podcast, we hope to shine a light on ideas and strategies from experts who have successfully applied them. I’m committed to helping create happy and productive workplaces for everyone.”
