Enterprises TV Relays the Happiest Cities for Employees

Where do the happiest employees live? Maybe in states where there are no income taxes? Maybe in cities where there is less traffic? Enterprises TV relays where the happiest cities are for employees.

Frankly, we were a bit surprised to learn that five of the top ten are in California, where there is a high income tax. Several of the cities have major traffic issues: Los Angeles, Miami, San Diego, Boston, and Washington, D.C. But these cities also have excellent public transportation. There are plenty of things to do which are affordable from inside the cities to weekend excursions outside of the city. Housing can be expensive in most of the these cities, but employees tend to be generally happy all around.

Here are the top ten happiest cities for employees:
  1. Los Angeles
  2. Miami
  3. San Diego
  4. Providence, RI
  5. San Francisco
  6. New Orleans
  7. Washington, D.C.
  8. Boston
  9. Riverside, CA
  10. San Jose, CA

Many reports focusing on employee satisfaction often produce results which point to careers where people are helping other people. Flexible schedules, work from home days, good compensation and benefits, as well as a healthy paid time off allowance all factor in how happy someone is to work with their employer. On the same level, if that employee has a hellish commute and is not satisfied in their job or career, then it really does not make any difference where they live. Enterprises TV asks: are you a happy employee in one of these metro areas? Why or why not?
