Be a Happy Business with Xero: win a £300 Apple voucher

Xero LogoA happy business is a beautiful thing, and that's why Xero – beautiful accounting software for small business – has launched the Business of Happiness project.

According to happiness expert and Business of Happiness ambassador Dr Robert Holden, being happy can help make your business more successful. And when you're happy, it brings out the best in you. It helps you to think more clearly and perform better.

So how do you make your business a happy one? Maybe it's having the latest technology or flexible work hours. Or perhaps it's having the freedom to be creative or having friendships with those you work with.




Xero's Business of Happiness project is all about defining what makes a happy business, championing those who are doing it well and supporting those who need a helping hand.

So what makes a happy business?

Xero teamed up with some trail-blazing entrepreneurs and a renowned psychologist to get to the bottom of the serious business of happiness. Along the way, they identified five top tips to help you build a happier business:

  • Have a vision that defines your future goals. And work towards it.
  • Build strong team relationships by nurturing a sense of community.
  • Help your employees to strike a balance between work and free time.
  • Support the personal and professional development of employees.
  • Give employees the opportunities and tools to be creative in their work.
