In their upcoming book, Wellbeing: The Five Essential Elements (Available May 4, 2010), Rath and Harter (2010) offer this interesting piece of information about career and its impact on our well-being.
It’s quite astonishing that people recover faster from the death of a spouse than from prolonged unemployment.
Although career well-being is discussed, it is just one of five elements covered.
The Five Essential Elements
- Career Wellbeing
- Social Wellbeing
- Financial Wellbeing
- Physical Wellbeing
- Community Wellbeing
This is one book I’m really looking forward to reading.
