Here’s a look at the top 20 happiest companies in America to work for in 2015

Workers at the pharmaceutical giant Johnson & Johnson really love their jobs, some businesses just know how to make their employees happy.

So it’s unsurprising that the largest publicly traded health care company  was voted the happiest company in America to work for in 2015 by its own employees, according to an annual survey from job site CareerBliss.

Semiconductor designer Broadcom took second place, followed by oil and gas giant Chevron.

Employees were asked to rate their employers on several happiness factors, including office environment, work-life balance, company culture, compensation, opportunities for professional development, and job resources.

“Each year, CareerBliss evaluates the companies dedicated to creating happier work environments,” says Heidi Golledge, cofounder of CareerBliss. “As we evaluate the factors that impact happiness such as growth opportunity and company culture, it is also important to understand what type of industries are creating happier work environments overall. This year we saw a surge of STEM-related companies rank in the top 10.”
