The Philips Work/Life Survey examined key factors of Americans’ job happiness, with a particular focus on their ability to bring personal interests to their workplace career as a way to create more job satisfaction, achieve greater shared success with their employers, and improve overall well-being.

Meaning is one of the five essential elements of employee engagement. What surprises me most about Philip’s survey results is the apparent willingness by participants to actually take a pay deduction in exchange for a more meaningful job. Do you agree with the findings? Are you like one of the 43% who said they would be willing to take a pay decrease of 25% or more in exchange for greater meaning? Enjoy the infographic below (source: Philips), then share your thoughts with us in the comments. Is meaning at work really more important than a bigger paycheck?
