Resumen


El bienestar subjetivo es un indicador de la felicidad y de la calidad de vida de los individuos. Refleja la experiencia de los seres humanos de acuerdo a condiciones de vida como buenas relaciones sociales, prosperidad económica y salud. Las personas felices tienden a ser más saludables, mejores ciudadanos y empleados más productivos. En esta investigación se aborda la teoría y los diversos estudios que analizan diferentes determinantes de la felicidad. Se toma como terreno de campo al Grupo Difare, una cadena de retail farmacéutico en Ecuador. Se realizó una encuesta que permitió determinar el nivel de bienestar subjetivo y de otros nueve indicadores: 1) bienestar psicológico, 2) felicidad laboral, 3) espiritualidad, 4) salud, 5) apoyo social, 6) afectos positivos, 7) bienestar material, 8) balance trabajo-vida y 9) acceso a educación, cultura y recreación. Se evidencia, como resultado, qué dominios afectan más la felicidad de los trabajadores y se sugiere en cuáles se debería trabajar más.
