To find out where some of the happiest employees in the U.S. live, workplace insights platform kununu.com created a list of the top cities with the happiest and unhappiest workers. To come up with the rankings, kununu examined over 87,000 employee reviews conducted in the last 12 months for companies in the 50 most popular U.S. cities. Then, the site ranked each city on a scale of 1-5, with five being the most satisfied, based on company culture, teamwork, autonomy and support from management.
"Since we spend one third of our lives working, it is important to understand the drivers that shape our levels of happiness," Johannes Prüller, Director Global Communications at kununu, said in a statement. "There are always several factors that contribute to overall workplace satisfaction. Our data highlights the overall temperature of the workforce within a city and suggests that the location you are based can have a significant impact on how you perceive happiness."
