The PlayIndex & PlayQuotient The PlayIndex is a website that will allow users to input details anonymously about their company, their level of happiness at work, if they are having fun, ways in which they feel that improvements can be made to their work life. They will also have the opportunity to input their moods at various hours of their day at work, so they can document their emotional states through their work-days. Work life: Under the microscope The PlayQuotient is a composite score that is made up of employee evaluation of different work life-related criteria.
