Which jobs provide the greatest happiness and satisfaction in Hong Kong? Apparently, not the ones that pay the most. You would never have guessed, but those who provide training in various skills to corporate and NGO staff are rated, or rate themselves, as the happiest. Eighty-four per cent describe themselves as happy and satisfied, at least according to a happiness-index survey of 20 fields of work by City & Guilds, a consultant in international vocational education and training. I don't know about you, but this looks a bit biased to me, coming from City & Guilds, which employs plenty of trainers. Next happiest are social workers and lawyers, both at 78 per cent, followed by doctors (75 per cent) and insurance agents (74 per cent). The overall happiness rating among the 900 people surveyed was 63 per cent. Tour guides (66 per cent) and beauticians (63 per cent) are happier than civil servants (60 per cent) and media hacks. At 58 per cent, we hacks rank in the bottom fifth, tied with pharmacists and just ahead of accountants (56 per cent), hairdressers (51 per cent) and health care workers (42 per cent). The most unhappy workers in Hong Kong? Cooks and chefs. This presumably excludes executive chefs who speak with a French accent. The survey finds feeling 'underpaid' and 'unchallenged' to be the key reasons for unhappiness on the job.
