This list was compiled through analysis of “more than 36,000 employee reviews between November 2011-November 2012.” This is very interesting considering the fact that Memphis’ positivity has increased even more since then.
This is how the rankings were established:
Employees all over the country were asked to evaluate 10 factors that affect workplace happiness. Those include one’s relationship with the boss and co-workers, work environment, job resources, compensation, growth opportunities, company culture, company reputation, daily tasks, and control over the work done does on a daily basis. They evaluated each factor on a five-point scale and also indicated how important it was to their overall happiness. The numbers were combined to find an overall rating of employee happiness for each respondent, and then they were sorted by location to find the 10 happiest cities for employees.
With Memphis being the 4th happiest city to work in, these are our the compiled scores:
- Overall score: 3.99
