Topic sentences: What makes a happy employee? What makes an employee happy?
Topic should be included in the post as well as the title. Cagey, moderator.


I have seen both questions and I wonder if there is a difference between them.
Is the first one more colloquial than the second one?

Thanks

    I view them differently:

    What makes an employee happy? is a short-term thing, e.g. a day off, a bonus, pizza at the end of a difficult day.

    What makes a happy employee? is a long-term thing, e.g. what makes the person happy nearly every day. It's about overall job satisfaction.

    Let me try!

    What makes a "happy employee"?

    "What makes a CONSTANT happy employee?" How to keep them happy? What keeps them happy? Why? Because I don't want him/her to lose happiness.


    What makes an employee happy?

    "What makes an employee TO BE happy". How can you make a happy employee? Why? Because he/she is sad.


    Kind of funny! Peace!
