Check out Lydia Dishman's article on FastCompany. Dishman's references the recent work of CareerBliss, where it released its findings on the 50 Happiest Companies in America.
Who are the top 5 happiest companies? Check it:
And what is it they have in common? Read the article. First of all, because reading is fun (and good for you). Getting spoon-fed the results all the time gives us mushy brains and hey, how can we be happy if our brains are mushy.
But if you read the article, you'll also find out the 5 Rules of Happy Employees. That's right. There's only 5. And when these 5 cylinders are banging, you might be happy even if your brain is mushy.
Here's the bonus.....read it & you just might discover that you currently work for one of the other 45 companies on the list. Or not.

SPENT ON THE JOB, IT'S ABOUT FEELINGS
THAT COME FROM IMPROVEMENT,
OR LACK THEREOF.
