Many believe that the main role of an HR leader is to hire new employees, record employee grievances, and implement company-wide initiatives focused on corporate culture, but people management is about so much more than that!
People leaders can impact the overall financial success of the company if their employees are engaged. But how do you know for sure that your people are happy?
Here are 3 ways to measure job satisfaction in the workplace:
1) Capacity – Are your employees equipped with the right tools and resources to do their job?
2) Connection – Are they treated with fairness and respect by their team leaders?
3) Communication – Do your employees receive regular feedback from their supervisors?
And the best way to track these elements of job satisfaction? Survey and speak with your employees one-on-one, on a regular basis. The goal is make sure that they are motivated, challenged, and ultimately happy at work.
Keeping your finger on the pulse of employee engagement will result in lower employee turnover, increased productivity, and more profitability for your business.
According to the Gallup business journal, “concentrating on employee engagement can help companies withstand, and possibly even thrive, in tough economic times.” This is huge.
To put it simply: happy employees = happy bottom line.
Companies with engaged employees experience 22% more profitability and 21% more productivity. – Susan Sorenson, Gallup.com
