Only 2% of people say they work just to pay the bills. Being happy at work is important for 90% of us. Yet over half of us are unhappy at work.
People who are happy at work tend to enjoy life more and have better health, stronger relationships and a greater sense of purpose.
Happiness has a huge positive impact - evidence shows that happier staff are more productive, creative and committed.
The Action for Happiness sessions are brilliant. I joined the first one as a real sceptic thinking it may be all fluffy nonsense, but they are fantastic and definitely helping to change my mindset. Thank you for organising them.

How it Works
Investing in employee wellbeing brings multiple benefits. From improved mental health, resilience and coping skills for individuals to increased levels of job satisfaction, staff retention and productivity across the organisation.
When people are happier at work they are better at collaborating, problem-solving and taking care of the people around them. That means their team and their clients, but the tools we teach ripple out beyond that and support people to grow in all aspects of their lives.

The value of Vanessa's presentation went beyond the sphere of professional and provided valuable insights into managing our own well-being and those around us. A message for the present and the future.
I haven’t enjoyed any “training” for years at the research councils in the way I have this course- and I’ll have been at the research councils 34 years at the end of January so that’s saying something!
I think the sessions are really good and have told many friends and family about it and various exercises from it.
Vanessa brings a real vibrant energy that helps engage the audience, and she uses a variety of tools to keep the sessions interesting and interactive. The feedback from the SCOR team was excellent and we would happily recommend Action for Happiness to others. Vanessa is a real pleasure to work with.
