WHAT I like best about working for The Happy Co. are my coworkers. I can depend on my team to assist me in the time of need. I also like the versatility of being able to do a variety of tasks as well as being able to work virtually. I also like the fact that I can be creative in all aspects of my responsibilities.

SOCIAL MEDIA WHAT MAKES YOUR COMPANY ONE OF THE BEST PLACES TO WORK IN

DIRECT SELLING?

We’re one of the best places to work in direct selling because happy is who we are. Our team is a big part of everything we do at The Happy Co. They also help us foster an environment where teamwork exists in all areas.

HOW DOES YOUR COMPANY BRING THE SAME REDCARPET TREATMENT TO YOUR EMPLOYEES THAT YOU GIVE TO YOUR DISTRIBUTORS? We regularly highlight our employees and applaud the many contributions they make to our team. Employee spotlight, team “virtual” lunches and other tokens of appreciation are all big parts of our culture—even in a virtual environment.

HOW WOULD YOU DEFINE YOUR COMPANY, AND WHAT ARE THE KEYWORDS THAT DESCRIBE YOUR CULTURE? The Happy Co. is as much about the “Happy” as we are about the Co.—connection, community, collaboration and more. We focus on a happy environment where our team thrives and feels supported to provide the best experience for our Brand Partners.

WHAT IS YOUR TOP PRIORITY WHEN IT COMES TO MAINTAINING A GREAT WORK ENVIRONMENT? Our top priority is our people. We want them to feel appreciated, supported and able to continue to do the great work they do every day for our distributors.

HOW DOES YOUR COMPANY SUPPORT TEAM MEMBERS IN THEIR PERSONAL AND PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT? We support our team members by offering professional development opportunities, flexible work options and paid time off.

WHAT IS SOMETHING THAT HELPED YOUR COMPANY PIVOT AND SHOW RESILIENCE IN 2020? The entire team of employees was forced to pivot in April 2020 by converting our physical convention (originally planned at the Gaylord Texan) into a digital convention. They rose to the occasion and came together as a brilliant team to make it happen! All of this was done from the comfort of their own homes. n
