Money Can't Buy You Love—Or Workplace Happiness

What do we value most in the workplace? Money? Benefits? Turns out it is neither.

According to The Detroit Free Press Top Workplaces survey of nearly 2,500 employees in Southeast Michigan, workers are more concerned with the direction their employers are headed and the way their organizations operate. How about that—strong values and ethics reign supreme over dollars and cents.

Further, employees want to feel they have a stake in the direction of their company; that what they have to say matters. On the other hand, being micromanaged and employer intimidation tactics are among top gripes.

The survey noted PricewaterhouseCoopers and Google among the region’s best places to have a job.
