Best work trip ever?

Smart Dubai is proving just how committed it is to the happiness of its employees: the government initiative is sending 31 employees from various government departments to the Disney Training Institute in Orlando, Florida.

The employees, dubbed the ‘Hapiness Champions’, will take part in the Disney Institute’s customer service training course. It comes as part of Smart Dubai’s efforts to achieve the goals of its ‘Happiness Agenda’ and to further promote training and education.
