Happiness seems to be one of those words that can only be de-fined in general terms like love It is easy to know when people are not happy but determining happiness is a little harder People often say that they feel happy or that something makes them happy Greet-ing cards are filled with one-liners defining happiness saying things like Happiness is and then going on to compare it to a kiss from a child or a puppy dog If achieving happiness was really that trite then no one would have much trouble achieving happiness Happiness at work is really a more completed recipe where many personal ingredi-ents are needed to make it turn out as people hoped The ingredients or factors that determine happiness on the job are universal in that all workers need a combination of these to be happy The determinants of happiness could be money a feeling of se-curity and feelings of making a contribution or being involved Work-ers may need validation or appreciation a sense of belonging feelings of accomplishment or achievement or respect or power Jobs that provide these determinants or values in the quantities that the individ-ual needs are good jobs in that the worker is going to be happy Jobs that provide most of these determinants may still be unhappy jobs be-cause the job may be missing that one value that a specific individual needs the most Two different people see the same job differently be-cause the values of the individual are the most important determinants of whether or not the job is a happy one In finding happiness at work there is a large but limited set of values or factors the key is determining how much of each value is needed The individual is the only one who can make the determina-tion of how much of each value is needed What makes one person happy at work is not the same combination for the next person
