Dr. Tal Ben-Shahar | World-Renowned Expert

One of the world's leading experts in the science of happiness!
Tal taught two of the most popular courses in Harvard University's history: Positive Psychology and The Psychology of Leadership. His books have been translated into over 30 languages and have appeared on best-seller lists around the world. Tal's work bridges Eastern and Western traditions, ancient wisdom, and modern technology, science, and art.

"Happiness at work was a nice to have. Now, it is a must-have. Companies need to evolve into a happiness and wellbeing culture to increase productivity. Employees are looking for psychologically safe workplaces where they can flourish and feel connected through purpose and meaningful relationships with the environment, others, and the self. People want to learn and grow as indicators of success, and happy places allow this kind of KPIs. Happiness is, most and foremost, a culture, a way of relating and living. Adding value is another permanent goal in every business. Happiness can increase levels of trust and profitability."

"Happiness brings an excellent reputation to attract more talent and enhances clients' credibility in how the company is managing the human resource. Employees feel pride and a sense of belonging to the company. The HR department can evaluate how committed the people in the organization are and what can be done to allow people to connect from a deeper level than just the payment. HR people will see the path to walk with the people to increase loyalty to the business. There are many hidden costs with resignation: people leave the organization with the know-how, and managers have to begin each time again, although they have processes documented because there is some learning that is inherent to the person, his values, and his contributions."

Yuval Kutz | HSA President & Co-founder

Happiness Studies Academy offers online multilingual educational programs from a Certificate in Happiness Studies to a fully accredited master's degree. HSA hosts a global support network made up of thousands of professionals from 90 countries.

"SPIRE is a scientific-based happiness model focused on human beings' more basic and natural aspects. Therefore, it is an objective happiness that fits every environment and culture.

The SPIRE model has dramatically impacted people with no previous approach to happiness and people with a long time teaching happiness. It can be taught at different levels of depth and fitted to diverse audiences and various needs."
