Aristotle had it right when he said “Happiness is the meaning and the purpose of life, the whole aim and end of human existence.”
With a vision to create a happy work environment, SP Jain’s Dubai Campus declared 2016 as the Year of Happiness. Following the principles of Positive Psychology and the Science of Happiness, SP Jain led year-long initiatives to facilitate employee well-being and happiness. In 2017, SP Jain has decided to take this initiative forward to reach out to the community and launch the first of its kind Happiness Centre of Excellence in Dubai, UAE.
The SP Jain Happiness Centre of Excellence is a re-imagining of how individuals can best work and live together using core principles from the latest research findings from the Science of Happiness. The concept of income based well-being is limited in the sense that it neglects overall well-being and happiness. The science of happiness embodies the notion that a developed society is one where its citizens have overall satisfaction with their lives.
The vision that economic growth of a nation should translate into the well-being of its citizens has been the single most driving factor that saw the launch of the Happiness Initiative by the Government of UAE and the appointment of Her Excellency Ohoud Al Roumi as the Minister of Happiness.
SP Jain’s goal towards making 2017 a year of Excellence begins with the launch of the Happiness Centre of Excellence.
