Movers and Shakers
Voted Happiest Company in America in 2014, Pfizer dropped steeply from their No. 1 position, not even making the top 50 for 2015. Moving up the list was Google, climbing from a ranking of No. 21 last year to No. 6 this year. In a surprising fall, Apple ranked No. 14 last year but dropped to No. 50 for 2015.
“It is important to see how workplaces are constantly evolving and changing. Creating happiness at work is a very fluid process, building and adapting to a changing workforce, while accounting for the key factors that create happier environments,” says Golledge.
CareerBliss Adviser Bradley Brummel, who has a Ph.D. in workplace psychology, adds, “Not only do these industries pay well, but employees in STEM-related companies are happier in these jobs overall. This may reflect the positive features in the type of jobs these companies offer, but it also might reflect the fact that employees with these skills have lots of choices of whom to work for. This means the companies have to keep them happy to keep them at the company.”
How CareerBliss Determines the Top 50
To figure out who this year's happiest companies are, CareerBliss analyzed thousands of employee-submitted reviews submitted to CareerBliss.com between 2013 and 2014. These reviews ask employees to rank their employer based on a set of unique metrics, calculated to give an overview of key happiness factors at work including: work-life balance, relationship with boss and co-workers, work environment, job resources, compensation, growth opportunities, company culture, company reputation, daily tasks, and job control over daily work. The data also shows how much the employee values each factor.
Each review is then given an average score indicating where the company places, out of a maximum score of five. Reviews from thousands of companies were tabulated to find the CareerBliss Happiest Companies in America in 2015.
