Happiness Edge is our speaking and workshop arm.
We undertake speaking assignments for various groups, such as schools, colleges, communities, and companies.
Our workshops provide a design for growing employee engagement, raising workplace happiness, and increasing intrinsic motivation.
Our workshops are called Happiness Edge.
The goals of Happiness Edge are:
- Increasing the intrinsic motivation and engagement of the workforce.
- Strengthening a culture of innovation, creativity, and cooperation.
- Inculcating ‘ownership’—a feeling that workers are an integral part of the organization.
- Achieving higher sales and productivity, while reducing attrition and sick-leaves.
Our workshops incorporate the latest scientific, research-based ideas about how to bring out the optimal best in people by raising their happiness.
So, whether we are developing leaders to positively influence those around them, or working with the corporate staff to invest in a new vision for personal development, our workshops make authentic differences to the effectiveness and positivity of the participants.
Our approach is designed to make people in organizations more effective by rehumanizing interactions inside out.
- We help people gain a better understanding of learn what actually drives them to behave the way they do and how they can create their new experiences based on that.
- We help remove the roadblocks preventing them from tapping into their natural psychological strengths.
- We help people understand the unique value of their contribution to the organization and to the society at large.
Happier workers coming out of our workshops nurture an elevated sense of ownership, and they feel that they are an integral part of the organization.
We help people become the best versions of themselves.

Losses Due To Unhappiness At Work
These have been found after several scientific studies:
- Businesses can lose up to 50% of their profit to stress and unhappiness. – Employee Stress – The True Cost
- One-fourth (26%) of employees view their jobs as the number one stressor in their lives. – Northwestern National Life
- Three-fourths of employees believe the worker has more on-the-job stress than a generation ago. – Princeton Survey Research Associates
- Problems at work are more strongly associated with health complaints than with any other life stressors – more than even financial/family problems. – St. Paul Fire and Marine Insurance Co.
- 50% of All U.S. Employees Are Not Happy: Nearly one in three workers is seriously considering leaving his/her organization at any time. This constitutes a 50% increase from 2005. – Mercer Study, New York: One in two US employees looking to leave. Gallup, in its 2013 Global Workplace study spanning 142 countries, found that only 13% of the workforce are engaged and happy in their jobs, representing a cost of $500 billion annually – in the US alone.
- Lost Opportunity of Innovation: The lost opportunity does not only concern lost work time due to sick days, demotivation, or fluctuation rates. The real loss occurs when we realize that motivation can increase innovation capacity by about 50% within an organization. – Gallup Study, Engagement Index Germany 2012
- Health care expenditures are nearly 50% greater for workers who report high levels of stress. Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine
- 91% of managers say that their roles don’t allow them to be at their best80% of all employees say their jobs don’t fully engage them
Gallup’s latest report says that the percentage of U.S. employees engaged in their jobs averaged 31.5% in May 2015. This reading is on par with 31.7% recorded in January, March, and April, but is the lowest monthly average for 2015.
Why Happiness Before Success?
The traditional model of success is just wrong. While we are used to thinking that once we were successful—at work, at home, at life—then we would be happy; but, in fact, the opposite is true. Happiness comes before success!
Happy people are more successful. Happy people are more likely to ace job interviews, and secure better jobs. They are evaluated more positively by superiors on a job, show higher performance and productivity, and handle managerial position jobs better. In a job, a happy person is more likely to succeed better. They are also less likely to show disruptive behavior and work burnout. Furthermore, service divisions with happy leaders are more likely to garner high customer ratings.
