Many of us probably don’t associate “happiness” with “work.”
But maybe we should: Studies suggest that happy people are actually more productive and successful, and less likely to leave their jobs.
This quiz measures how happy you are when you’re on the clock. It’s based on research that has identified key factors to happiness at work.
For the first 20 items below, please select the response that best indicates how much you agree with each statement. There are no right or wrong answers, so please respond as honestly as possible. If you are an independent contractor, when you see “organization,” bring to mind people in your profession—that is, people who do the same kind of work as you. When you see “colleague,” bring to mind people who you interact with during work, such as clients, vendors, or peers in your field.
The final six questions will help our research team see how people’s levels of happiness at work relate to factors like gender, age, and profession.
When you're done, you'll get your happiness-at-work score, along with ideas for cultivating more happiness at work.
