The Secret To Being Happy At Work? Flowers, Not Money



City & Guilds, a technical and vocational education organization in the United Kingdom has released its annual Career Happiness Index.

It surveyed 2200 workers to find out what British people consider as the most important factors contributing to happiness at work.

The happiest professions were florists and gardeners (87% of them agreeing they were happy), hairdressers and beauticians (79%), followed by plumbers and water workers (76%), and marketers and PR people (a close 75%).

Last on the list? Bankers of course (44%).

“While 61% of those surveyed say being adequately financially rewarded is very important,” said the poll, “having money isn’t necessarily the key to contentment.”
