OUR VALUES

The Happiness Index passionately believes in your FREEDOM TO BE HUMAN.

We believe it will ultimately lead to greater happiness.

We don’t want our values to simply be displayed on the wall of our office. We want our people and customers alike to embody them and carry them into their everyday work tasks and relationships. We recognise that this means something different for everyone but for us it translates to the following values:

CONVICTION

Trusting everyone to deliver and empowering people to make decisions in all areas of their work. This also means candidly admitting mistakes and holding ourselves (and others) accountable. We offer guidance and support to help each other learn.

REVOLUTION

As an organisation we embrace change and innovation in all aspects of our work. We encourage people to experiment and make mistakes sometimes. Our team is curious and likes seeking out new methods. We are always challenging boundaries where we can.

COLLABORATION

Building relationships by listening and empathising is key. Focusing on delivering great results for colleagues and customers, we collaborate and embrace feedback at all levels. We like being, (and working with!), decent human beings. After all – we are all human aren’t we?!

In short, we strive to work hard, have fun, and be nice!
