Increase Happiness at Work for Yourself, Your Team, and the Organization

With this online Woohoo Certified Happiness at Work training, you have all the relevant knowledge and tools to work as a happiness at work expert within your organization or with your clients. After completing this training, you will understand how to enhance your own job satisfaction, how to work with happiness at work in a team, and how to ‘implement’ happiness at work in an organization.

How does the Online Happiness at Work Academy by Woohoo Unlimited work?

This online training consists of 8 modules. A new module becomes available every week. You can work through the module at your own pace and have a year from the start to complete everything. The modules include videos and individual assignments. Various working methods are covered during the lessons, methods that you can use both online and offline. In the learning environment, you will also find cheat sheets, additional reading tips, and background information, as well as extra interviews with various experts where they share their stories or give a glimpse into their organization. By engaging in conversations with them, we bring multiple perspectives to light, giving you as a participant a broad view of happiness at work. Additionally, you will hear how other organizations have tackled the topic. What worked, what didn’t, and why? A step-by-step guide on how we work with our clients, plus the slide deck from a one-hour workshop, is included in the training. So, you can get started right away after completing the training. Plus, you gain access to our community of Happiness at Work Experts, where you can exchange experiences and ideas. You wil have access to all the modules and be part of the Woohoo Community for a full year.

The training is individual, and you complete the assignments at your convenience. We advise you to approach the assignments with attention. Anyone can read a book. Knowledge can be acquired anywhere, but applying it has value.


Together with Others

Of course, there are more people taking this training and those who have already completed it. Because you can learn a lot from other participants, we recommend connecting with them via the community so that you can also collaborate.


Intensive guidance

You will receive intensive guidance for four months from one of the trainers. Every two weeks, there is an hour available to ask all your questions, test ideas, and discuss your plan.


From Inspiration to Action

We believe it’s essential that you learn a lot during the Happiness at Work Academy, but most importantly, that you put it into practice. Therefore, a crucial part of the training is creating a plan for what you will do with what you have learned. It can be a plan for yourself, your team, or the organization. Make it as concrete as possible. Insight and inspiration are enjoyable, but action is better, as we always say. In the Community you can discuss your plans with your peers as well.
