Rasponsible happiness pays off.


Bottom line numbers show, that happy leaders are more successful, happy employees perform much better.

The Responsible Happiness Improvement Program is designed to measure and improve job contentment, employee engagement, employee well-being and happiness, by a group of happy mindset tools. Guiding employees step by step through these levels of happiness development, their performance increases and so the financial numbers of the company improve.

NHS Employers & O.C. Tanner Global Recognition Study (2008) reveals that the operating income of companies with engaged employees is 19% higher than the average. For companies without engagement the operating income is 30% lower. This represents an approximate 49% difference between companies with unengaged and with engaged employees.

According to Towers Watson’s Global Workforce Study (2012), companies with sustainable engagement (who apply employee well-being elements) have an operating margin that is almost twice that of companies with high engagement alone and almost three times that of companies with low engagement.

Engagement and well-being depend on happy mindset.Happiness Consulting’s experience is, that focusing on the development of happy mindset highly increases engagement and well-being, especially when awareness intelligence elements are added as well.

Happiness Consulting performs a happiness assessment in order to understand the organisation’s and its leaders’ unique characteristics in detail. The results allow us to point out the qualities of the organisation on many HR KPI levels. The strategy of happiness improvement exactly covers the assessment strategy: they work hand-in-hand. Happiness Consulting can improve the domains that are measured. Using these assessment results as a basis, Black Belt Consultants consult with the leaders about the preferred direction of happiness improvement, after which a Tailor-made Happy Mindset Training is created that is fitting the exact needs.



Assessment questions that improve happy mindset


Questions have a direct impact on the nervous system and on our way of thinking: they modify perceptions, moods and expectations. Therefore, Happiness Consulting asks questions with a positive and wider focus, which turns the mindset towards happiness. Already this special happiness assessment opens up happiness perspectives and itself improves happy mindset.


Our questionnaires are based on qualified questionnaires on a quantative and qualitative basis. They are the result of a fruitful work of our services development team with experts in Positive Psychology MBA, Behavioural Psychology (PhD) and Statistical Science (PhD). They are also fine-tuned by the experience of Happiness Consulting’s trainers and consultants. The questionnaires are internally validated.


Happiness Consulting offers a stand-alone happiness assessment, or an assessment-based consultancy about happiness improvement factors.

Together with the team leaders, we identify the characteristics of a team and identify what profile person would fit into the team and perform the job tasks the best. We create the recruitment announcement, select the best candidates, and perform a profile test to select the best of the best. We help with the interview and later with the ensuing job placement process. We help defining the job KPIs, and together we develop and agree in a training and learning plan.

2. Responsible Happiness Improvement Program

Happiness Consulting focuses on providing a Responsible Happiness Improvement Program to improve the happy mindset & awareness intelligence within the organization.



Before a Tailor-made Responsible Happiness Training is created, a Happiness Assessment is performed with sufficient number of stakeholders.

Based on the analysis Clients are consulted to set the strategic weights of the Tailor-made Responsible Happiness Training domains and sub-domains.

In order to support the smooth merger of happiness improvement into the organisation’s development strategy, Clients are provided with evidence-based and well-prepared presentation material helping his/her explanation of the happiness strategy to colleagues or leaders. Upon the Client’s wish, a Black Belt consultant attends the crucial leadership meeting as a backup support or presenter.

After proceeding the Responsible Happiness Improvement Program, periodic surveys are performed to track the development and to apply further trainings if needed. Clients with high assessment scores may apply for a Happiness Certification.

3. Organisational development, BPR

Our Clients are seeking more than the world-class HR assessments, processes and human quality improvement programs. They aim to build a high-trust and engaged workplace culture from an all-encompassing holistic view; therefore they want to deeply implement happiness at their organisation.


Applying the best Talents, and having them learn and internalize how to be happy is a key step, which needs the supportive culture and structure of the system. If the KPIs are built up, e.g. around bonuses, it will only support the outer motivation of the employees instead of supporting the happiness improvement process which has the intention to raise intrinsic motivation and inner engagement. The unfolding of a happy company culture depends on the company’s system that enables it; always remembering that happy employees perform better. The experiential statement of ‘happiness and human qualities at its best performance’ shall penetrate the system from the Vision & Mission statement to all the elements of Execution & Support.
