Our Purpose

To elevate wellbeing at scale and connect a global community dedicated to fostering positive change.

Our Mission

Rooted in science, WOHASU® is dedicated to developing and delivering programs, services and experiences aimed at increasing individual, organizational and community happiness and wellbeing. In addition to our programs, we deliver on our mission by building communities that support sustainable change through awareness, connection, and experience

Our Story

We created WOHASU® as a social enterprise in 2016 to serve as a comprehensive platform to bring awareness about the benefits behind the science of happiness and wellbeing. We strive to educate individuals, businesses and civic leaders about the importance of learning and implementing data-driven tools and policies that can make people, organizations and communities happier.

Beginning with the first World Happiness Summit® (WOHASU®) in 2017, we have been delivering on our mission to spread the ripples of happiness to a global audience, and cultivate a community committed to co-creating a happier, healthier and more sustainable world.

We are both honored and humbled by WOHASU’s success. A variety of impacts can be seen directly from the outcomes of our programming, and indirectly through the new services, programs, events, businesses and foundations created by those who attended the Summit, fostering new ventures arising from the learnings and network acquired through the WOHASU community.

Wellbeing research and practices have many proven advantages that help optimize our personal and professional lives. Through the World Happiness Summit® and WOHASU® ecosystem we connect a global audience to foster community.

Become an active participant of your life. Instead of letting life happen to you, show up to your life. We invite you to join the WOHASU® movement.

I choose happiness.

Our Goals

  • Create and support positive systemic change.
  • Provide a framework and tools for mattering at work, and how fairness, diversity and inclusion improve overall organizational wellbeing.
  • Values surfacing between employees and organizations for alignment that creates positive work culture, and between organizations and customers for alignment that fosters purpose-driven brand identity, and increased customer satisfaction and engagement.

What do we mean by Happiness?

Happiness is a process, achieved by practicing actions that become habits over time. The science behind wellbeing provides the framework to increase positive emotions, improve health, rewire mindsets and enhance traditional business outcomes.

The Happiness Paradox

Research finds that directly pursuing happiness makes us less happy, so we need to invest in improving elements of life that help us become happier and healthier. Central to the WOHASU mission is to promote an evidence-based approach to cultivate happier individuals, organizations, communities and societies. We promote several frameworks created by leading experts to show you how.

Why now?

The global health crisis has heightened the need to provide solutions for the increased sense of loneliness, anxiety and angst. We can no longer accept the costs stemming from ignoring emotional and mental wellbeing. We have the tools, trainings and programs to elevate individual happiness, improve wellbeing in education, and foster positive organizations and communities.

Why us?

Happiness and wellbeing are key drivers of health and success—that’s why we collaborate with leading experts, practitioners and organizations to offer varied programs, services and experiences aligned to meet your needs and goals. We take a detailed approach to provide you with solutions to thrive. We offer a community to foster connection and support sustainable results.
