Happiness prevails in European jobs - 2 November 2009

Apart from a salary, happiness is one of the most asked questions when it concerns jobs. The European Working Conditions Observatory give this nice chart with one overruling conclusion: most Europeans are pretty happy in their jobs. 

Lithuania is doing worst with only 66 percent of the people being happy at their work, followed by Turkey with 67 percent. But in most European countries the percentage of employees being happy is well over the 70 percent. 


Women tend to be slightly happier (or are they easier content?) in most European countries with the exception of both Lithuania and Turkey again, where women seem to be even slightly unhappier than men. 

Best place for women to work is Switzerland, where slight more than 90 percent claims to be happy in their work.  Now, why would that be?
