SANCHEZ-VAZQUEZ, Juan Francisco  y  SANCHEZ-ORDONEZ, Raquel. "Happiness Management»: Review of scientific literature in the framework of happiness at work. Retos [online]. 2019, vol.9, n.18, pp.259-271. ISSN 1390-8618.

The changes in the world of work and organizations and their impact on people's lives have raised a new way of approaching the relationship between work and happiness. A bibliometric study is carried out of the works on the economy of happiness that have been published in Spanish between 2000 and 2018. To do so, the EDS-Multidisciplinary search engine (EBSCO Discovery Service) is used, selecting 95 publications that deal with this subject. As a result of the study we find a greater production of theoretical approaches on the subject as opposed to empirical research. In the latter, the works are fundamentally analyzed from the economic and psychological perspective. The clearly growing trend of scientific production on happiness and work has two important aspects: On the one hand, the very time of great changes, which makes emerge continuously new explanatory and prescriptive paradigms; and, on the other hand, this increase coincides with the end of the economic crisis. Overcoming and leaving behind the preoccupations of this great imbalance of the world economic system has once again focused the interest on making companies more productive and humane, preserving occupational health and improving personal development. In this sense, the urgent need for a multidisciplinary approach to this area from empirical research that contributes to improving relations between the world of work and the subjective well-being of people is highlighted.
