Employees Happier At Work . . . For Reasons Other Than Money

More than half of American workers are happy with their jobs—a first since 2005. Perhaps it’s because GDP growth is up to 3% or they’ve finally gotten rid of the post-recession jitters. Or perhaps, there are other factors at play.
    • Job security is on the rise—over 52% of respondents don’t fear being laid off. That’s up from 46% in 2011.
    • Wage satisfaction is growing as well—41% say they are happy with their pay, up from 36% in 2011.
But that’s not the only thing that’s got Bill from accounting taking shots off his tax forms:
    • People at work are the most important—61% of people are happy socially.
    • Supervisors are on the comeup—57% of people are happy with their supervisors.
    • Interest in work is causing a buzz—58% are happy with what they do.
So even though employees are happy with tangible categories like performance reviews, bonus plans, and promotion policies, it is the work environment that is most satisfying.
