We have talked about workplace happiness and the findings of the Richmond Research Panel.
It is perhaps interesting to look at how different departments perceive workplace happiness over the last 12 months, particularly since many of them are talking about the same organisations.
Less happy are Logistics, then IT and particularly Human Resources. 58% of HR people feel happiness has reduced over the last 12 months.
Communications Directors feel it's about the same.
Finance Directors and Marketing Directors are happier, which is interesting because these two groups usually have opposing opinions.
Surprisingly perhaps, Retail executives are happier still, despite the reported difficulties on the high street.
Happiest of all are our PIMS customers from financial services.
Those potentially closest to the problems of the financial crisis appear to have improved most in terms of happiness over the last 12 months.
We leave you to speculate on the reasons, as ever details of our research are available from David Clark
