Leger Workplace Happiness Index

Why use the workplace happiness index (WHI)?

From a purely altruistic point of view, to raise the level of happiness of the people around you. From a business point of view, to increase your employees’ productivity, improve staff retention, attract top talent, and consequently, improve your company’s performance. It’s a win-win situation.

A revolutionary concept in the business world

Numerous studies have reached the same conclusions: workplace happiness is profitable, productive, and contagious, while its opposite acts as dead weight. Can a company afford to have unhappy employees these days? The answer is obvious.

New information

The data generated by the WHI differs from that of other forms of consultation and can lead to unexpected insights. Among other things, it enables you to compare your group’s results with the results of all Quebecers according to age and sex. We believe that by straying from the beaten path and asking real questions, we will get real answers.

Key Features


The WHI is completely confidential and anonymous, and it protects the integrity of participants’ answers. Confidentiality is a key element of the system which assists with improving the participation rate. 

Flexible and customized

The WHI system is designed to ensure greater autonomy. Companies can customize consultation start and end dates, the number of participants, and segmentation of participants according to their organizational structure. Specific questions can also be added.

Quick and simple

The configuration, computerization, and automation of the WHI’s processes make it simple to use, thereby allowing participants to complete it quickly and obtain immediate results.


The WHI provides results that are completely different from other existing forms of consultation. It gives a true picture of the state of your organization’s employees, based on a large number of criteria, including the 24 factors that influence overall happiness and the five factors that influence workplace happiness.


The WHI demonstrates employers’ sincere desire to improve their employees’ well-being. In addition, by providing personalized and confidential results to each participant, the WHI motivates them to complete the assessment, which ensures a high participation rate.


Advances in technology have made it possible to offer previously expensive services at a lower cost. Thanks to its cost efficiency, the WHI makes consultation systems accessible while offering more.



Automation of the processes by no means implies the absence of oversight. In consultation with human resources specialists, the WHI provides assistance and advice throughout the consultation process to ensure it is a success.


One of the main characteristics of the WHI is its ability to provide benchmarking results as well as comparisons with national results. These comparisons allow the company to better assess its own performance and to make more informed decisions.

More specifically, the WHI enables you to:

  • Accurately assess the level of happiness of employees (overall and by specific groups)
  • Understand it, compare it, and improve it
  • To determine the performance of this same group, but according to the six factors of happiness at work and the eight influential dimensions
  • Compare your results with national averages
  • Assess the group’s performance, but this time according to the five factors of workplace happiness
  • Compare the results with those of other companies in the same field
  • Identify the strengths and weaknesses of the organization
  • Implement a new management tool
  • Inform and support managers in their work
  • And provide solutions to improve your organization’s performance
