The National Media Council (NMC) in Ajman marked International Day of Happiness, which falls on 20th March each year, and got endorsed by the United Nations to achieve happiness and welfare for all peoples worldwide.
The NMC staff exchanged flowers among themselves and distributed some to clients and strategic partners. The step was aimed at making employees and customers happy and educating the public to adopt happiness as a way of life.
Sheikha Al Ansari, director of NMC office in Ajman, said, "This initiative aims to boost the status of Emiratis on world happiness index." She noted that making employees happy strengthens excellence, upgrades performance and enhances delivery of better services to the public and partners as well.
The International Day of Happiness is an official UN day that recognises the pursuit of happiness as a fundamental human goal and the need for a more inclusive, equitable and balanced approach to economic growth that promotes sustainable development, poverty eradication, happiness and the well-being of all peoples.
