Happiness at Work Matters. When we achieve greater job satisfaction it has a huge impact on the productivity of our workers. The Happy Melly Business Network brings together videos, podcast, blogs, work life balance tips, and other valuable resources for entrepreneurs, managers and individuals who want to inspire happiness in their organization. So hopefully “I love my job” will become the new normal.
Happy Working Resource Hub
Happy Melly is a collection of people hands-on resources to help you learn how to be happy at work and to empower you to help others achieve job satisfaction. The Happy Melly blog is where our Funders, Supporters and an occasional guest sound off on this topic. It’s filled with work-life balance tips, small business resources, how to motivate employees and find out what makes people happy, and how social entrepreneurship is allowing people finally to say “I Love My Job!”
In his article, The Network Effect, Jurgen Appelo discussed how Happy Melly was going through a series of experiments to improve the value of our members network. We have some amazing engagement and interaction through our Happy Melly Slack Channel, with members sharing experiments and experiences in worker happiness and employee engagement. You can find some of them curated in under Happy Melly Experiments and also by visiting our Happy Melly supporters’ profile pages and there are many more on the way.
Our latest initiative, Happy Melly Coffee is an awesome collaboration bringing together Happy Melly members and other like-minded people in a series of video discussions, which aim to cover some of the most frequently asked and – for the most part – unanswered questions on various topics, such as remote working, agile and change management and employee engagement.
The Happy Melly Coffee sessions are the first in a series of collaborative projects that are aimed at improving the value and overall Network Effect for our global worker happiness supporters.
The idea for our Happy Melly Coffee sessions came after Jurgen was asked for the 100th time, “Do we still need managers?”. In Jurgen’s opinion this was just one of many questions that in his humble opinion were the ‘wrong’ questions. He wrote about ‘wrong questions’ in his article, Many people ask the wrong questions. With so many wrong questions continually asked, we decided it was time to create a platform through which people could ask the ‘right’ questions and through open and collaborative discussion we could hopefully come up with some great answers.
Happy Melly Members get the opportunity to put forward any question they would like to have answered. Members add their question they want to discuss to ourHappy Melly Coffee Trello Boardand everyone gets to vote for the question they want to discuss. However anybody can join the on-air discussion!
How to inspire self-organization amongst teams

How can we create or increase urgency for change in companies that are still mainly managed, but not led?
