Happiness, Reward and Work Life Balance

Earlier this month I had some comments published on employment happiness, relating to my comments last week on reward:

“Whilst it’s interesting to see which professions pay the most money, it could be a fruitless goal for those setting out on their career path as there is far more to work than money alone. Much as we want to have a strong standard of living, for many employees a work life balance is far more of a priority. 
Employee reviews on our website show that on average they reported a work life balance satisfaction rating of 3.2 out of five. This has steadily declined from 3.5 in 2009 which isn’t the direction we’d like to see it move in.  
Working 24/7 in high pressured environments is highly rewarding on many levels for some people - but it’s not a one size fits all solution for all. Our research has shown that jobs such as a web developer, commercial manager and a research assistant are rated the highest for work life balance. These jobs might not offer the highest salaries but if it leads to happiness at work it’s priceless.”
