CHO refers to “Chief Happiness Officer.” The founder, Dr. Amen Lee believes that every one of us is born with the underlying nature of happiness. However, due to our personal and environmental factors, we are incapable of unshackling our happiness. Therefore, Dr. Lee hopes to promote the Chief Happiness Officer Movement in Hong Kong, so that everyone can “Be my own CHO”.
Co-founder, Ms. Mary Suen said that the establishment of the CHO platform is to reform business models with the value of “design happiness” ,it is designed to let “people” release happiness in an innovative technique. Ms. Sun believes that having a happy mentality encourages us to embrace new ideas, appreciate things from different perspectives, expand our horizons, and welcome unlimited business opportunities. Another co-founder, Ms. Sophia Sung, also hopes that CHO can advocate their philosophy arising from the corporate culture and inspire the virtues of happiness into the hearts of every employee. Therefore, happiness can infuse new energy into the company, drive corporate transformation, and thus, help the company bypass the predicament.
The award successfully concluded with the support of the co-organizers, the HSUHK and the School of Business of the HSUHK, the supporting organizations, D.E.C.T Production, the Hong Kong Association for Customer Service Excellence, the Hong Kong Cosmetics Industry Association, and the media partner CTgoodjobs.
