Is job satisfaction the same as being happy at work?

I was attending Happiness at Work conference a few weeks ago. Right at the beginning we talked about Daniel Kahneman’s teachings, the author of Thinking Fast and Slow and a Nobel Prize Winner. Alexander Kjerulf, founder of Woohoo Inc., who was delivering the course made a distinction about job satisfaction versus being happy at work. I think it is important to know the difference since many organizations I see are struggling with that. Job satisfaction comes from things like compensation, bonuses, office space, table tennis corner, free snacks, gym and all the perks we see at many offices. When leaders see the morale is low or people leave, these are the first things they provide. Sounds fun
