Does Your Work Place Make you Happy?

What are you willing to sacrifice for good money, a great team, a cool office, the perfect location?

It is a question that most people are faced with at least once in their lifetimes and the answer can change dramatically from one year to the next.

For some people, stability makes them happy and they will sacrifice on other factors because of this. Knowing where the toilets are, working with the same team and progressing gradually through the same company makes them feel happy and fulfilled in their work place. They will sacrifice career progression and even a bigger salary to hold onto this. In this ever changing world, however, a job for life is getting rarer by the day and this precious stability could be taken away overnight.

Maybe your company announces a merger, changes office location or even something simple happens like your team leader leaves and is replaced by an ogre.  Then what? 

Working close to home is at the top of other people’s lists. They relish leaving the office at five pm and being home by five fifteen. They may even be living the dream and going home for lunch every day.

Lunch break in the parkTo live this dream, however, sacrifices will have been made. Maybe your boss doesn’t appreciate you, your desk faces the wall and the toilets constantly smell of bleach but who cares? You get out in the fresh air every lunchtime with your dog, you prepare and eat your favourite sandwich in your own kitchen and you are home in time for a tennis lesson before dinner.
