Happy Planet Index

Last week I wrote about the 5 ways to wellbeing as described by the NEF.

While I felt it was a good start on creating well being, I wanted to find out more. This is how I stumbled across a TED talk by a researcher of the NEF. In this talk, Nic Marks talks about quantifying an organisations outcome. Not in terms of GDP or revenue, but in terms of happiness. Right now, the Happy planet Index focusses on nations, but when you define your company as a micro-society, it applies to you as well. Embedded below is the TED-talk, followed by the link to the study. Enjoy!
