Carat Australia Gets Happy And Celebrates International Day of Happiness
Carat Australia took part today in celebrating the UN International Day of Happiness to create a happier and more connected workplace. Day of Happiness was created by the United Nations to spread happiness, inspire solidarity and promote well-being.
Carat’s Happiness Day events were inspired by celebrating the little joys in life that can sometimes bring the greatest pleasure; whether it is a smile or a group hug.
Carat’s 408 strong team in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth arrived at work to be greeted with giant HAPPY balloons, happiness coffee cards and the team curated happy music playlist streamed via Spotify.
Each team member was given a lucky happiness number with random draws throughout the day; rewarding people with massages, manicures, champagne, cocktails, flowers and cupcakes.
Messages and tips to boost happiness were also shared via the LED screens in each office encouraging the team to plan a holiday; eat their lunch in a park; put down their mobile phone; and tell a colleague how much they appreciate them (or even better, more than one!).
During the day, the team were encouraged to share what makes them happiest on Twitter and all messages were written and attached to balloons and released into the air as a symbol of solidarity.
Adriana Colaneri, National Head of Marketing & Values said “At Carat, our greatest asset is our people and we are committed to improving their happiness and well-being and ultimately creating a great place to work. This initiative is also aligned with our Carat values and beliefs; pioneering, collaborative, responsible, ambitious and agile. We want to be catalysts for change and supporting International Day of Happiness is a way to achieve this.”
