Happiness is often equated with a form of mood or emotion and is often confused with the word satisfaction. The Psychologists attribute happiness as positive emotions in psychology. The happiness is the outcome of workplace practices or policies. The present study was conducted with the objective of testing the level and influence of intrinsic, extrinsic and work life issues of happiness on faculty with three years experience drawn from STEM branches in a private Institute of Higher Education. The happiness factors were categorized into intrinsic factors with items associated with self-esteem, self-actualization which derives happiness to the individual from inner self, extrinsic factors with items as compensation, work environment, health and work-life issues with connected with flexibility, adjustment and counseling between work and family which derive happiness to the individual at the work place. The three factors of happiness i.e. intrinsic, extrinsic and work-life issues were analyzed with profile and employment factors by applying mean analysis and ANOVA statistical techniques. The age as a factor of happiness at the work place is a significant factor. The work-life issues are important during the early period of employment. The choice of faculty as a profession is due to flexibility.
