Abstract: Human resources with high levels of happiness will impact organizational productivity and performance. Employees spend most of their day working in the organization, so it is obvious that working environment is a significant factor that affects employees’ emotional and job performance. The findings of this study showed that working environment highly contributed to the employees’ happiness with a min value of 3.010. Subsequent findings indicated that the quietest working environment influenced workers to produce high quality work. Although the findings showed that the respondents were satisfied with their current working environment, some respondents still expected further improvements in terms of facilities such as healthy food at the cafeteria and extended nursery services from infants to four-year-olds.
Keywords: Employees’ happiness, workstation, healthy food, organizational performance.
