As a partner and leading distributor for Happiness Works in Canada, Karelab now has access to the firm's Happiness at Work Survey. This gives Karelab a valuable new tool to evaluate organizations on the happiness and engagement of their employees. The Survey can be offered to businesses on an ad-hoc basis or can be integrated into a comprehensive program of employee recognition and engagement.

The Happiness at Works Survey is based on robust scientific research from around the world and is a proven way to measure the level of satisfaction of an organization's employees. It gives Karelab another way to identifiy clients' needs and help them deal with the challenges they face. The compiled survey results are available instantly and can be shared with management and individuals to help redefine the strategy and orientation in the organization if necessary.

Businesses now have easy access to the widely-respected survey which can also be tailored to add specific questions to align with company objectives.

The survey is also available at no charge on the Karelab web site for the general public and for those curious about their personal level of happiness at work. Respecting the confidentiality of each person who answers the survey, the results are then sent to the individual concerned and include a global index of happiness that compares personal results with worldwide benchmarks.

"Use of the Happiness Works survey fits perfectly with our approach at Karelab. It helps us adapt our strategies and programs to suit the needs of our clients and deal with the real problems they face," said chief executive officer Marc-Andre Lanciault. "Each organization is unique and this adds something significant to our toolbox that will help us put in place the kind of measures that can have a real impact on employee engagement, and ultimately on performance and profitability."

It's important to us that our partners are at the top of their game with the know-how and drive to kick-start a truly impactful program of positive change.
