Stuck in a rut? Unhappy in your career? Not progressing the way you thought you would? Not sure what you want to do with your career?
A fascinating piece of research has revealed that, if you’re happy in your career, you actually earn more money. It’s not the high salary that makes you happy. It’s the reverse that is actually true.
Referring to a study by economist, Professor Satya Paul, this research shows that if you are fulfilled in your career, despite working less hours, you can expect a higher salary.
Processing data from the household, income and labour dynamics survey (HILDA) Professor Paul has reasoned that happiness in your career directly leads to you earning more – not the other way round. This is a thought-provoking and counter-intuitive concept.
Career Analysts has always worked with its clients to analyse their interests, motivations and skills so they choose a career path that makes them truly happy. When you are happy in your job, and therefore motivated, you are far more likely to be successful.
The study seems to agree with this, as Professor Paul infers that happier people work more efficiently and increase earnings for themselves AND their employers.
