Sources of happiness and unhappiness in the workplace: A combined perspective

Abstract

Perspectives on the sources of happiness and unhappiness (sometimes viewed as "well-being") may be distinguished in terms of their primary emphasis -either on features in the environment or on people's thoughts and feelings. This paper will separately cover environmental features and within-person mental processes. In a third section, we will present a combined perspective, exposing how happiness may be understood as a function of both job and personal characteristics. Finally, avenues for future research are suggested, emphasising the need to distinguish conceptually and empirically between different forms of happiness and unhappiness, given that each one has its own partly distinct sources and consequences.
