BONUS: Beyond Profit, How Happy Office Is Redefining Success in the Workplace, with Maartje Jansen and Fennande van der Meulen

Maartje and Fennande’s journey into the realm of happiness at work began with a blend of personal insight and professional evolution.

A conversation with a neighbor about the  innovative step of hiring the Netherlands’ first Chief Happiness Officer, led them to the realization that prioritizing worker happiness is not just beneficial but essential for business success.

This revelation was the cornerstone for founding Happy Office, the consultancy they work for.

Both had always valued engagement and purpose in their work, but now they were seeing the business world through a new lens: one that focuses on harnessing the full potential of employees, beyond just profit generation.

Their early skepticism from academic circles about influencing work culture was overturned by practical experiences.

The Four Pillars of Workplace Happiness

They define happiness at work simply by saying: “it’s when you find yourself whistling on the way to and from work!”

They use four ideas to help describe how to achieve that outcome, the four Ps of Purpose, People, Progress, and Positivity.

These pillars serve as the foundation for creating a work environment where employees feel energized rather than drained.

At the core of their definition lies the basic human needs for meaningful relationships and contributions, suggesting that true happiness at work is about finding the right balance that fulfills these needs.
