For accountants, a meaningful connection with colleagues brings them more happiness than loving their work

For accountants, a meaningful connection with colleagues brings them more happiness than loving their work

The top 8 professions in terms of number of responses to my happiness at work survey were:

– Accounting
– Financial Services
– Hospital & Health Care
– HR
– IT
– Management Consulting
– Oil & Energy
– Pharmaceuticals

When looking at the responses to the question what does being happy in your career mean..the most popular response for all bar one of the professions was – loving what you do.

…the only profession which had a different #1 response to loving what you do was accounting. Their #1 response was…meaningful connection with colleagues.

Why do you think this is the case? Is it because of the subject matter of accounting (no disrespect intended)? If so, can we infer that certain subject matters are just difficult to be passionate about?
