What does it look like to be a Happiness Manager at Semetis? | Articles

My name is Alisson and I am the Happiness Manager at Semetis. 

Wait. What’s that, again? 


There is no real definition for “Happiness Manager” as it is a dynamic and evolving role that follows the company culture and the business needs

At Semetis, my function is axed on 4 pillars: 

  • Human Resources,
  • Prevention Security and Wellbeing at work,
  • Events,
  • Office Management.


I work in duo with Louise, our Office Manager. She is our star when it comes to Events and Office Management while my main focus is Human Resources and Wellbeing. 

As Happiness Manager I live the Semetis’ values and transmit it to the newbies.

I am the person of contact for all Human Resources’ requests and I am responsible for the Prevention, Security and Wellbeing at work. In other terms, providing HR day-to-day support, helping the Management in shaping the ‘Human Ressources future’ of Semetis, making sure that the office is a safe place, maintaining a correct work-life balance - and of course - showing the example. 

What is extremely important to me is to be as close as possible to the Semetissians in order to understand what they need and as a consequence take appropriate actions. It can be very simple actions like inserting nut distributors in the office to power up our brains, but also put in place the “work from abroad” concept, for instance.


A strong culture

At Semetis, we believe that spending time together is crucial to engage our employees and build a strong culture. That's why we have built our own “event team” and “impact team” of which I have been the lead for quite a while. Those teams are constantly reflecting on how we can bring people together, by doing sporty or impactful activities, organizing team competitions, celebrating birthdays or promotions, etc.

So, what does it take to become a Happiness Manager in my experience? 

It’s not so much about the diploma, but much more about the soft skills: being a listener, understanding your people, and above all, being unifying.
