The empirical happiness research is an interdisciplinary field of study. The definition of "happiness" is not clearly interpreted in science. There are numerous approaches to defining happiness and its success factors for private and professional life. Value based happiness concepts become more important in scientific research. In particular, selected universities in the USA are intensively involved in empirical happiness research. Due to the shortage of skilled workers and the change in values of the younger generations, companies in the IT industry in particular rely on the results of scientific happiness studies in order to sustainably increase employer attractiveness. Here, the corporate culture and an authentic leadership plays a prominent role. In practice, however, there is often an inadequate leadership culture characterized by overburdening, ignorance, greed, power and / or narcissism.
