Discover how to create happy workplace – and improve productivity and staff well-being, reduce staff sickness and increase revenue.

The benefits of a great workplace are widespread. Motivated and energised employees lead to better staff well-being, lower staff turnover, less sick leave and easier recruitment. Which all leads to an increase in the revenue towards your fantastic cause.

The Happy Manifesto by Henry Stewart has helped CEOs, Directors and Managers of hundreds of charities and non-profits to improve their workplace culture to one of high trust and autonomy, with a no blame culture and teams that play to their strengths. In the book, you will read real-life examples from Happy and other organisations who have implemented these ideas and how it has benefited them.

"Imagine a workplace where people are energized and motivated by being in control of the work they do. Imagine they are trusted and given freedom, within clear guidelines, to decide how to achieve their results. Imagine they are able to get the life balance they want. Imagine they are valued and held accountable for the work that they do, rather than the time they spend at their desk. Wouldn’t you want to work there?"

Henry Stewart, Author of the Happy Manifesto and CEO of Happy
