Why I joined The Happiness Index, by Roma Varma

Roma Varma | 15th April 2016

When you hear the words ‘The Happiness Index’, you can’t help but be intrigued. That’s exactly how I felt when I heard there were opportunities available within the company, and it was this curiosity that got me here writing this article today.

I had a few job offers, so why did I choose The Happiness Index? I’m part of a generation that cares about happiness above most other things so I made a list of what I liked about the company and role:

  • I care about people’s happiness. I seem like one of the few rare people in London who smiles at passers-by in the hope that I may have just made their day a little bit better.
  • You know your job is going to be easier when the product is the best in the market – it sells itself!
  • I’m not techy at all, but the product is simple enough that I actually understand how it works.
  • I love talking and finding out about people, so being able to meet and talk to new people every day is exciting!
  • The company values mention integrity and being a good person, what’s not to love about that!
  • I know the concept works because of personal experience.
  • The office is AMAZING!
  • We’re based in London, which in my opinion is the best place to be!

Hopefully the story of my experience will help you to understand the reason why the concept of staff happiness excites me and why I want to help other companies to achieve this…

I worked for a company that had an employee feedback system in place and I can honestly say that it was one of my favourite places to work. You were listened to and as a result everyone in the company was happy and therefore more productive.

On the contrary, I worked for another company where I was pretty miserable and there was a high staff turnover which could have been prevented had they utilised the benefits of a tool like this.

Everyone wants to be happy, you spend the majority of your time at work, so the concept of The Happiness Index makes sense! If as a company you can improve employee happiness, then why wouldn’t you? 🙂
