Canadians are a proud and happy bunch.
A recent study by Robert Half of employees in North America, Europe and Australia shows that Canada has one of the top rankings for job happiness.
The results of their study are published in a new report: It’s Time We All Work Happy: The Secrets of the Happiest Companies and Employees. It shows the top driving forces behind each country’s happiness at work, and for Canada, it’s pride in one’s organization, feeling appreciated and being treated with fairness and respect.
“Happy employees are at the heart of successful organizations; they’re engaged, motivated and ultimately support a more innovative, productive work environment,” said Greg Scileppi, president of Robert Half, International Staffing Operations in a release. “Managers can improve happiness levels in their companies by frequently recognizing staff contributions, and making sure employees understand how their roles fit in with overall company goals.”
The report also showed the United States, Germany and the Netherlands have the happiest employees among the countries included in the research. Canada came in fifth on the list.
