Workplace happiness varies between sectors

Employee satisfaction levels with benefits varies considerably between industry sectors, according to research on The role of reward in happiness in the workplace from Employee Benefits and YouGov. Almost half (48%) of staff in the pharmaceuticals sector are fairly satisfied with their benefits, compared with under a third (28%) in the hospitality and recreation sector. However, the survey also reveals that 17% of employees in the hospitality and recreation sector are very dissatisfied with their benefits, compared with just 5% of those in pharmaceuticals.
