What if?


What if?


        

What if, in our busy lives, our common work habits  dramatically slow our productivity and minimize our physical ability to: think, make decisions, be creative, take action, and use our talent?

What if, our high-stress state was contagious to others, quickly spreading to everyone around us via physical signals and even a stress-smell we release?

What if, companies who adopted science-based happiness habits dramatically improved KPIs, increasing everything from profits to productivity to team health?  Welcome to reality.

Happiness is like oxygen -
we physically need it, especially at work.

Google, Apple, and other global successes have a reputation for their fun and quirky office cultures. Thanks to hard science from reputable institutions like Harvard, we now can measure how happiness at work physically affects team members, benefiting everything from health to performance to profits.

 

our mission

To empower big, save-the-world ideas.

Happiness at work is a superhighway to human potential and the big ideas of the future.  Surprisingly, with a few little changes to our work day, we strengthen hidden happiness muscles that completely transform how we perform and feel on a daily basis.  What's better: it's contagious!  Every team has a collective level of happiness.  This means that the overall tone of a company can change as teams dedicate themselves to happiness at work.

our method

We learn-by-playing

Our secret sauce is "learning-by-playing" happiness strategies that produce immediate and long-term results.  We elevate learning-by-doing to the next level to what we call "learning-by-playing".  With this approach, the experience goes beyond team building and speedily unites teams.  Our method offers
highly-effective and practical techniques that easily become daily routines and are especially useful under pressure.  


We help companies find & keep the best possible team

A study analyzing the engagement level of 50,000 employees performed by The Corporate Leadership Council found that when employees are happy and engaged, companies:

  • will increase profits 3X faster than their competitors.
  • are 87% less likely to leave the company for another job.

Companies invest substantial time and money in hiring the right team.  However, science finds how team members feel on a daily basis determines how much of their precious talent they apply to their job.  With only 13% of employees being happy and engaged at work, the majority of companies have significant untapped talent resources as well as profit potential.

Job candidates, especially millennials, choose culture over compensation.  Make Work Fun programs inspire current team members' loyalty and attracts the best future talent by demonstrating the company's commitment to well-being and growth.
