Workers at Bloomberg, Netflix and Google are among happiest in the US

Blind, an anonymous professional network with more than 3.2 million work-email verified users, has announced the results of a survey that identifies what the firm claims are the top fifteen companies with the happiest workers in the US. The survey of more than 10,000 Blind users claims to provide insight into the link between employee happiness and personal growth.

Nearly 68 percent of the overall workforce are satisfied with the growth opportunities at their current employer while only 51 percent of all workers claimed to be happy at their workplace.

“Overall, Blind found that employees who felt they had significant growth were also the happiest and, as self-reported employee growth declined, so did happiness. Nearly 80 percent of employees who reported they had significant personal growth also reported they were happy in their current role,” notes Kyum Kim, Blind co-founder.

“However, among employees who reported they had only moderate growth, only slightly more than half said they are happy. Happiness drops notably again among employees who reported they had no growth, with only 16 percent saying they are happy in their role”

Breaking down the survey results further, by company, Blind was able to rank the companies in several different categories. As attracting and retaining talent is becoming increasingly difficult for companies of all sizes, Blind’s survey identifies one key to employee happiness, personal growth.
