By downloading this eBook, you will understand:
As well as in their day-to-day tasks, staff satisfaction is closely linked to how an employee feels about a company’s style of management and organisational culture – the traits that define the business such as internal communication, staff development policies, and recognition of employee performance.
For satisfaction at work, employees need a direction and a sense of purpose that keeps them going. Therefore, leaders must be clear about their strategy and goals to help employees feel connected, valued and fulfilled.
A well-designed, well-timed employee satisfaction survey can reap rewards for your business in the long term, maintaining a workforce that can be trusted to deliver. Surveys shouldn’t just be saved for times of hardship.
One way to generate high employee satisfaction is to focus directly on those areas that matter most to employees – and regularly review them to ensure they remain relevant.
To be an ‘employer of choice’ in the future, employers cannot merely offer competitive rewards, development opportunities, and healthy company culture. They’ll need to provide a consistently positive employee experience as well.
