HappyMeter


Why focus on happy employees, a happy culture, and completing the HappyMeter made available to you below?


A growing body of research is demonstrating that as we become happier, the quality of our lives improves

dramatically and in general we become better people.  As we become happier we become more compassionate,

more creative, more energetic, more financially successful, more emotionally and physically healthy, and

more effective and productive in the work place.


Businesses and organisations’ (hence forth referred to as “business” /  “businesses”) that have a happy culture and

happy employees, a happy way of being, enjoy all the foregoing as well as reduced stress levels and reduced

absenteeism, and therefore less medical claims. In individuals there is greater commitment, confidence,

self-belief, motivation, contributions in general, and more of an inclination towards achieving their and the

businesses/ organisations’ full potential. Research shows that anywhere between forty to sixty percent of the

population is unhappy at any given point in time, equating to a large percentage of the population / of your

mployees either not enjoying, or enjoying less of all the foregoing. This alone is a powerful case for being happy and

or bringing about a positive, happy culture within your business, and therefore measuring the levels of happiness in

your business.


To enable the completion of the HappyMeter within your business, you must first register as a client of ifacts. To register and complete the HappyMeter / have others complete the HappyMeter, contact me and we’ll arrange it.

Once one of you have signed up, a representative from IFacts will contact you to arrange payment (inform the person how many HappyMeters' you require and therefore will be paying for), where after ifacts activates your username and password. You'll then receive an email providing you with your username and password, and explaining that you will be able to login after activation. There is an option once you have logged in, to e-mail the HappyMeter to designated e-mail addresses (the individuals you wish to complete the HappyMeter, and have paid for).


The Good News - Research shows overwhelmingly that individuals and groups can be ‘taught’ to be happy within a couple of weeks. That is, participants’ happiness levels increase through happiness training, such as through attending The Happiness Now workshop. The Happiness Now workshop (details available here) has proven its worth by tracking participants’ happiness levels as well as how ‘good or bad’ they felt over the eight week workshop. That is, those who’ve attended the Happiness Now workshop show a steady increase in their happiness levels and how good they felt, week after week while attending The Happiness Now workshop. Furthermore, the shifts are sustained due to workshop attendees shifting into a ‘state’ of Being happy. In addition to this, workshop attendees tend to have improved heart rate functioning, or heart rhythm coherence, improved cognitive functioning, and improved body chemistry (all contributing to improved emotional, mental, and physical health and wellbeing).


With the foregoing in mind it is recommended you carry out our HappyMeter within your business / organisation / personally. A cumulative report with recommendations will be issued to an identified stakeholder within the business once all those taking part in the HappyMeter have completed the online questionnaire. Personal HappyMeter results are confidential and will NEVER be shared with anyone.

Within the business / organisations, the HappyMeter will measure (amongst other key areas) individual and collective levels in relation to:

 Values – whether individuals’ values are lived and whether the businesses values compliment / are in conflict with personal values;

 Personal and group happiness levels;

 Elements of the culture relating to happiness;

 Energy levels and ability to focus;

 Effectiveness & productivity;

 Elements relating to individuals personal power, potential, and self mastery being nurtured, lived, and promoted;

 Energy levels of individuals and the affect of said levels;

 Motivation levels;

 Job satisfaction;

 Commitment;

 Happiness levels;

 Happiness in relation to unwarranted absenteeism;

 Happiness levels in relation to illness.


Negative responses and outcomes to the foregoing (as revealed in the HappyMeter results) will negatively impact productivity, health, focus, creativity, satisfaction, effectiveness, commitment, motivation, energy, happiness and confidence levels, and self belief, and MUCH more! With this in mind it is essential you carry out the HappyMeter within your business.
