Instahappy, a UK-based company on psychological research, recently conducted a study on the happiness quotient in corporate and business India using ‘The Happiness Test’. According to the research, the happiest jobs in India are in the Hospitality and Events sector. The test results gauged the overall sentiments of individuals and corporations in present times and compared how happy people were in five different professions.
The scoreboard suggested people in Events and Hospitality were the happiest with a score of 6.4, people in Travel and Tourism came next with 5.6, Industry and Manufacturing was not far behind with a score of 5.3 on The Happiness Test. The unhappiest profession was Banking and Finance, with a score of 4.8.
Rashida Mustafa, Founder & Director, Instahappy said, “It’s an intriguing relationship. We might think that it’s not fair that people who have a chance to wear smart clothes and be in the best environments, with food, music, and celebrations, should be happier than those stuck behind numbers all day, but consider it in a different light. The ultimate psychological development is the ability to put your game face on, smile, and be nice to people. This is something folks in Events and Hospitality have to do all the time. If that, in turn, gives a lift to your life, we should think that there’s a lesson to learn here.”
“As we become more aware about happiness, we may use completely different criteria to guide us. Never forget the relationship between happiness and health; or in fact, even, positivity and money. The impact of the pandemic on our mental health has been staggering because some of the main opportunities people had to be joyful have been curtailed. By destructuring the industry that brought us joyfulness, and ensuring that we do not miss out on finding similar opportunities in our new life, we may yet survive the effects of the changed environment,” she added.
Instahappy’s Happiness Test is available to companies and corporations that want to check their emotional status (www.instahappy.co.uk). The company suggests that being in the flow allows you to perform better and that measuring and consolidating the happiness of the C-suite, managers and staff will give that edge to a company to bounce back on its feet. "Identifying departments that work well and measuring their happiness against their performance is the way clever companies will work in the future," stated Mustafa.
