Government ‘to measure happiness’
If the tone of the posts in relation to the government’s recent announcement that they would be measuring happiness on a national level are to be believed, they are clearly being mislead by the journalistic dictum of ‘titles inverted commas’. Mental well-being in the workplace – which is essentially what this study is tied to – is a serious issue that costs the UK government and business over £28 billion each year. I applaud a move to ‘measure’ happiness. The government already knows there is a problem and until you know its scope you cannot begin to devise a solution.
