CareerBliss, a leading online career community helping people find joy and success at every step in their careers, recently announced the 50 Happiest Companies in America for 2012. Based on more than 100,000 independent employee-generated reviews, the unique list offers insight into what drives employee happiness.

Ranking first overall is hotelier Hilton. Nordstrom, one of America’s most established retailers, claimed the No. 4 spot. CareerBliss’ 50 Happiest Companies in America awards offer distinctive insight into which companies are leading the way in work-life balance, job security and the key factors that foster employee happiness.

CareerBliss data evaluates the key factors that affect work happiness, including: work-life balance, one’s relationship with their boss and co-workers, work environment, job resources, compensation, growth opportunities, company culture, company reputation, daily tasks and job control over the work that they do on a daily basis. The data accounts for how an employee values each factor. Each review is given an average score indicating where the company places between one and five.

Heidi Golledge, Chief Happiness Officer and co-founder of CareerBliss, says, “We are proud to honor the top companies in America who clearly understand that, even in a tough economy, their employees are integral to their success. The companies on our list each have a strong emphasis on keeping their employees happy, as evidenced by their incredibly positive reviews in all facets of employee happiness including work life balance and career growth.
