Happy workers, according to CareerBliss.com via Forbes. Stranger yet, I find it interesting that Dayton, Ohio, Knoxville, Honolulu, Memphis and Pittsburgh share the same list but it makes sense because satisfaction is often based on the people you are surrounded by and not the geographic location.

On the other hand, if you want to whistle while you work you might want to avoid Boulder, Reno, Wichita, Fresno and across the Mississippi in Little Rock.

Not sure about the article but about the only thing they have in common is being in TN.

Well, that's probably true but I just thought it was very interesting that both cities have very happy workers. That has to count for something since we spend so much time at work. And for the record, Memphis and Knoxville probably don't have a lot in common with Honolulu, either!

We're both churchy towns with large state universities.

True, but the have different landscapes, weather, culture and demographics.I looked at Memphis and kept on driving East. Knoxville is MUCH better.

West and East Tennessee are different cultures, different people, different environments, different land types, everything is different.

All the way back to 1860, the state has been divided this way, and its still the same way today.

Taking the list at face value would provide the most likely acurate measure. The somewhat mountainous terrain of Little Rock and the very mountainous landscape of Boulder, CO don't seem to have equated to contentment or daily happiness, in fact we all know the sad reports of several disaffected citizens in mountainous Colorado in recent years. Memphis' "geographic location" and hot summers have produced consistent friendliness and hospitality according to visitors to the city, so the workers who interacted with those visitors must be pretty happy or at least very good at not bringing problems to work with them. My wife and I both work in the Hospitality Industry in Memphis for separate large organizations which employ a cross section of the citizenry, and we find good attitudes and team players which are above the national norm. If Knoxville ranks near Memphis in this category, congratulations!
