Being happy at work means comprehensively relishing what you do and adoring where you work. The employees feeling happy and motivated in working bring out positive results. They are focused in achieving the organizational and personal goals. Happy employees play a major role in success of any organization. The employees who understand well the organizational code of conduct, culture, policies and procedures are happier than who do not. Happy employees are productive, committed and creative for the organization whereas the unhappy ones may be poor in productivity, commitment and creativity. However, not many studies on employee happiness were known in the past. The subject of happiness at the workplace needs to be suitably theorized so that valuable research on it could be directed. This study will further look in depth at the happiness at the workplace. The research paper is focused on determining what makes employees happy at work. For this purpose; various views of different authors were studied to pick major factors of happiness at workplace. It was concluded that Happiness at Workplace is “the combination of positive feelings that an individual have about organizational culture, work involvement, incomes, team bonding following the complete responsibility of his job profile. It is when the use of creativity in work being independent. (Vivek Sharma, Sonam Jain. Happiness at the Workplace: A Conceptual Recapitulation. Asian Journal of Management. 2018; 9(3):1090-1095.)” Designing a questionnaire based upon those combining factors, a survey was conducted on 200 employees of various sectors and organizations. The idea was to derive what determines the happiness at workplace.
