San Antonio’s Young Professionals Are the Happiest in Texas

Your resident blogger here just so happens to be one of those happy young professionals!

What is it that makes young professionals so content in their careers? A fat paycheck? Nope.

In fact, generous pay has little or nothing to do with that keeps the young workforce in one place.

“Salary has the least impact on happiness for this group,” Golledge says. “As professionals begin their careers, they seek a company culture that embraces their individual work style. Our data consistently shows that the work environment, co-workers, and the way one works have the biggest affect on overall happiness.”

She adds that companies are beginning to embrace the idea of employee happiness and starting to realize how important it is for their business. “Knowing where to open up their next branch to attract young professionals and happy workers is key to their success For readers and folks who want to improve their careers, it is important to know where the opportunity to have a happier future lies,” Golledge says. “Understanding where their peers have found happiness and what types of factors impact their happiness is a valuable resource when deciding where to take their next career step.”
