Episode 13 Samantha & Your questions / by Samantha Clarke

How do I successfully implement a happiness strategy?

In my newsletters I often include sme of the top questions I’m asked that month by clients. However one lovely reader pointed out recently that they would love to know the answers to some of the questions posed as they are struggling with similar. So it will be business as usual with interviews with myself and one other but randomly sprinkled with some Q&A sessions with yours truly!

So first question is...

I’m not sure I know the best ways to keep our employees engaged and I think it’s time to think about a happiness strategy. My founders are not very aware of happiness consultancy – I’m not sure whether they will buy into the idea,  I need to show them how this is going to help the the company in the long run and I guess the bottom line. I believe we can afford more nights out and other perks but it all seems like costs I’m not sure we can wholly afford right now..

Can you help?
