Miami tops 2019 list of happiest US cities for workers

January 17, 2019 / Riia O'Donnell

Miami is the happiest city to work in for 2019, according to data complied by kununu. After gathering data from more than 85,000 workplaces reviewed between 2017 and 2018, Miami earned a happiness score of 3.99 out of five. Los Angeles, California; Raleigh, North Carolina; Louisville, Kentucky and Omaha, Nebraska, rounded out the top five. Workers were asked to provide rankings based on how happy they were with their employers; how co-workers interacted and worked together; if leadership set realistic expectations and if they involved employees in the decision making process; how much they were trusted to work independently; and how they ranked company culture overall. In a press email to HR Dive, kununu said it hoped to reveal if geographical location impacted career happiness, leading it to investigate employee contentment based on four factors: culture, teamwork, autonomy and managerial support.
