The notion of well-being and fulfilment within a company is inherent to the smooth running of work and to the establishment of a certain cohesion within the group, particularly for teams working in a cooperative framework. Once you have succeeded in creating the desire to produce and a positive dynamic among employees, you end up boosting productivity by emphasizing the pleasure of working and creating. What about the role of a Happiness Officer? Is he or she really capable of making professionals as happy as they are motivated?
Developing the skills of his professionals
It goes without saying that happiness and fulfilment are the keys to success in all sectors without exception. It follows that the more we invest in this, the more the alienating aspect of work will be diminished. In this sense, work can take on another form and manifest itself as a passion, a kind of activity that is carried out with love and where one tends to give the best of oneself by aspiring to increasingly effective results. By offering its employees definite prospects for development, it will be able to increase competitiveness and profitability. Today, however, the role of the manager is very decisive, inasmuch as he or she must invest, with the intention of bringing well-being to his or her employees. Indeed, without this, he will never be able to aspire to the success of his projects. In this sense, he will need the services of a Happiness Officer.
Role of a Happiness Officer
In recent decades, psychologists have only spoken of the infernal spiral of burnout due to a great overload of work and an increased accumulation of stress. The consequences are so disastrous that they take on quite dangerous forms such as eating disorders and suicidal thoughts. In order to avoid such a drift, it is necessary to provide solutions in the professional context that will bring well-being and serenity to employees. The Happiness Officer is a specialist empowered to create a certain well-being and inclined to increase motivation and individual and collective performance. Convinced of the effectiveness of this solution, large companies and multinationals have adopted it in their quest for HR, communication strategy, motivation and productivity.
It is thus incumbent on a Happiness Officer to carry out rather complex missions such as the implementation of a positive work culture by improving relationships and by emphasizing intrinsic human values for the smooth running of an activity or a project. He can also act when necessary on strategic elements such as schedules, new work technologies, coaching, motivation processes, team cohesion… But one of his main missions consists essentially in organizing fun activities through creativity workshops and competitions within the group as well as happy hours.
