The feeling of happiness helps people get the best out of themselves. Our method is built around three main branches and 28 underlying happiness predictors, which provide insight into happiness. The CHAP® Happiness Report explains 84% of the differences in happiness between people. We work from a scientific basis, use validated instruments and translate these via online tests into personal Happiness Reports on a personal and management level, with applications in the workplace.
