Perhaps surprising to some, happiness is not necessarily based on salary, but on finding true value and meaning in day-to-day work. Other perks that keep employees happy at their small business jobs include respect and gratitude from employers and seeing the fruits of their labor firsthand.

But a great work environment only goes so far. Seventy-two percent of survey respondents said that an improvement in benefits offerings would make them a happier employee, suggesting that there are real, concrete ways that small businesses can improve employee satisfaction.
