About the Index

The Happiness at Work Index launched in early 2007 as a quarterly survey of UK office workers. Here we track happiness at work over time based upon a series of standard questions. In addition, each quarter we ask questions around various aspects of working life. Summaries of these are available in the left column.

Percentage of respondents who are happy at work:
