“For the second time in three years, Google ranks as the happiest place to work, a new study finds.”
CareerBliss compiled its rankings by getting employee evaluations on 10 key factors that affect happiness: work/life balance, one’s relationship with his or her boss and co-workers, work environment, job resources, compensation, growth opportunities, company culture, company reputation, daily tasks, and job control over the work performed on a daily basis. The data were then compared from last year’s to determine the companies with the greatest gains in employee happiness.
These rankings are suspect. CareerBliss uses the study to lure people to its recruiting site. They don’t report same size.
Some of the variables are suspect, too. Compensation is not a determinant of happiness once you’re over the $75K/year threshhold.
Sccop.it needs a caution tag.
