This exploratory research aimed to analyze the relationship between perceived happiness promotion, work skills, life skills, health behaviors and employee happiness in private companies, and compared employee happiness among company sizes. The two-stage random sampling was obtained from the company employees participating in the healthy organization promotion program of the Thai Garment Industry Development Foundation 2016. This was conducted at the first step in the sampling companies and the second using systematic random sampling. The total was nine companies, comprised of 407 employees. Data were collected using a self-administered questionnaire and a happinometer. Data were analyzed by descriptive statistics, Pearson’s product moment correlation, and one-way ANOVA.
The results showed that characteristics of the subjects including age, income, perceived happiness promotion, work skills, life skills, and health behaviors were significantly and positively correlated with employee happiness. A multiple comparison found that the employees’ happiness levels significantly differed among company sizes such as medium size versus very large size and large size versus very large size (p <0.05). Thus, the application to the program, process, and evaluation design should also consider these factors.
