This blog post is a make-believe advertisement for a make-believe company looking to hire new employees. I was inspired to write it after listening to the TED Talk “The happy secret to better work,” given by Shawn Achor. The purpose of this post is to demonstrate an exaggerated version of an advertisement inspiring people to choose a job that will make them happy, and therefore successful.
Stop. Drop. BE HAPPY.
Are you tired of being unhappy in your work environment? Are you so overloaded with work that you feel like you aren’t even enjoying life? Do you need a change in your career path?
Then join our team. Our company’s motto is Stop. Drop. BE HAPPY. We believe our employees need to be happy in order to be successful in the workplace. We pride ourselves in maintaining a positive, enthusiastic, and healthy work environment. Our employees come first because we know happy employees make for happy customers.
When you become a member of our team, you’ll gain access to our state-of-the-art fitness facility, child care center, company café (with foods made from all-natural, organic ingredients), and complimentary coffee bar during the work day. Not only that, but you will have the opportunity to participate in non-work-related activities and sports teams, which will help you establish friendships with fellow employees.
Beyond that, we celebrate employees birthdays every month and recognize most valuable employees regularly. We also have a kindness committee that surprises employees with random acts of kindness. Our goal is to establish an atmosphere that will motivate employees to work diligently, but have fun and enjoy what they are doing at the same time. Our belief is that the happier our employees are in their positions, the more successful they will be, and the more successful our company will be.
So stop what you’re doing right now, drop that huge stack of papers, and come be happy with us…because who says hard work can’t be enjoyable too?
