Abstract

The article aims to: 1) assess young people’s general perception of happiness at work; 2) identify their most important features of happiness at work; 3) highlight the impact of demographic factors on expectations. The results of the study revealed that the most important features of happiness for young people in Lithuania are as follows: communication with colleagues, independence in achieving one’s goals and matching the organizational activities with the employees’ values; whereas demographic factors do not affect the expectations of happiness at work.
