Industries With The Happiest Employees

Some people love their careers so much, they’re the living example of that saying that if you love your job, you’ll never have to work a day in your life. Since most of us will spend a huge chunk of our lives working, it’s got to be better to be logging all those hours at a job you enjoy. And new research reveals which fields have the happiest and most unhappy workers.

  • To find out, Reboot Online surveyed over 25-hundred professionals from 29 different industries, asking them about seven factors of their work: positive impact on others, career prospects, employee empowerment, work relationships, positive impact on mental health, salary and work culture.
  • Their responses were used to come up with an overall happiness score for each field.
  • And based on all that, the industry with the happiest workers is science and pharmaceuticals, which gets a 91.93 overall happiness score.
  • On the flip side, the industry with the most unhappy workers is energy and utilities, with less than 10% of them being happy with their career.
