NORFOLK NETWORK WEBINAR
Tracking happiness through Covid-19
In turbulent times, happiness might feel like a stretch. However staying positive and measuring the impact of unprecedented change in the way we work is essential for survival.
Nic shared the business case for happiness. Drawing on his work with business leaders, teams and individuals during this pandemic, Nic explained why higher levels of happiness leads to creativity, innovation and resilience and therefore, positive change.
As a statistician and trained therapist, Nic has over 25 years experience of leading pioneering research projects in wellbeing. These include
– The Happy Planet Index (HPI), a metric to show that good lives don’t have to cost the earth. Using this index, Nic consulted various governments on how to think about wellbeing and presented the findings at TEDGlobal in 2010.
– The ‘Five Ways to Wellbeing’, a project commissioned by the UK Government. The findings were picked up globally by public health authorities.
- The ‘National Accounts of Wellbeing’, a study of wellbeing over 23 European countries. Nobel prize-winner Daniel Kahneman called it “state of the art wellbeing measurement”.
