If you’re like most managers, you’re probably wondering what makes an employee happy. After all, isn’t that what we’re supposed to aim for? The short answer is yes, but it’s not easy to achieve.

Happiness is a complex state of mind that can be affected by a variety of factors, both internal and external. In this article, we’ll explore what people who enjoy their work are doing that people who dislike their work aren’t doing. From setting proper work/life boundaries to actually working more hours, there are several signs that indicate your employees are happy and thriving in their roles.

Here are 18 things happy employees are doing that people who dislike their work are not doing:

  • Set Healthy Work/Life Boundaries
  • Believe in Yourself
  • Learning and Growing With Challenges
  • Have a Grateful Attitude
  • Influencing Others
  • Know Your Value
  • It’s All About Purpose
  • Remember to Be Grateful
  • Lean into Strengths and Preferences
  • Align Values With Your Work Purpose
  • Have Other Interests Outside of Work
  • Keep Up to Date With Industry News
  • Use Your Job to Improve Career Development
  • Work to Your Greatest Potential and Give Maximum Effort
  • Communicate With the People in the Office
  • Passionate People Pursue Challenging and Meaningful Work
  • Refuse to Cave to the Institutional Machine.
  • People Who Enjoy Work Tend to Work Long Hours

My take:

Know Your Value

Short term? My best advice for career shifters is to deal with this transition by taking a mental break first…then internalize, realize, and visualize. Try to identify your relevance in terms of value to a prospective employer, internalize on what your passions are and some transferable skills and accomplishments to relay to hiring managers, a solid resume and some email communication templates (or cover letter), and a lot of patience and willpower.

A good rule of thumb for the job hunter seeking a new role in a new industry is to identify your transferable skills and portray those first on your LinkedIn profile and resume. Reverse engineer your career path from your ideal job’s description and see what you have and what needs up-skilling.

Think the long game. Have a vision of your dream job. Think of your job drivers. What’s important to you? Time, money, benefits, etc. Each is different for each person. What motivates you? What’s your passion?
