The latest World Happiness Report makes it official: Northern Europe is home of the happiest people in the world. According to the study, the reason for this can be found in a positive basic attitude, a well-functioning social system and relatively low differences in income. Overall, the people in Norway and Denmark have fewer worries. However, it is first and foremost the small everyday pleasures that set them apart as happier than the rest of the world.
The latest World Happiness Report has been published yearly since 2012 in cooperation with the United Nations. It was started by Professor Jeffrey Sachs from the New York Columbia University and different expert colleagues. It contains a ranking of a total of 155 countries and is announced every year on the International Day of Happiness on March 20.
This year’s ranking is headed by Norway, Denmark, Iceland and Switzerland.

Happiness at the Workplace
The current edition of the report also deals with happiness at the workplace. In fact, a positive basic attitude depends decisively on whether or not people are in employment. And also company culture, work environment, and a good work-life balance, as well as a fair remuneration have a lasting positive effect on the happiness and satisfaction of the employees. And all of these factors ultimately contribute significantly to efficiency and productivity.
