Happiest Highest Paying Jobs in 2018

Posted March 16, 2018

What are the happiest highest paying jobs in America? To find out, our team at CareerBliss evaluated thousands of independent company reviews by employees, analyzing the key factors that impact workplace happiness and cross-referenced them with jobs that have an average salary of $75,000 or more.

So what jobs made the list of happiest highest paying in 2018? To find out, watch our video below!

The CareerBliss data used to find the happiest highest paying jobs evaluates key factors that affect work happiness including one’s relationship with their boss and co-workers, their work environment, job resources, compensation, growth opportunities, company culture, company reputation, daily tasks, and job control over work performed daily.

“Once workers have their basic needs met by their income, incremental dollars do not necessarily mean incremental happiness. Many factors beyond money drive career happiness for workers who make above $75,000 a year. Workplace culture and having control over your work environment are two key themes in the data this year,” says Heidi Golledge, Cofounder and Chief Happiness Officer of CareerBliss.

“Although Marketing Managers were not the highest paid career on our list, they had the highest BlissScore,” continues Golledge. “Money does not always buy happiness; factors such as company culture and your role at work have a lot of impact on how you feel about your career and therefore your happiness.”
