Why Happiness at Work Matters


At Affinity Workforce, we understand the significance of happiness in our daily lives, including the time we spend at work. After all, a happy workforce not only leads to a more enjoyable workplace but also positively impacts our lives outside of the office. We firmly believe that prioritizing happiness at work should be a fundamental goal for every organization, regardless of its size or location.


That’s why we’re thrilled to announce the International Happiness at Work Week, taking place from September 25th to 29th in 2023. During this special week, we’re going all out to celebrate and promote happiness at work. Here’s a glimpse of what you can expect in our offices across the UK…
