Our partners at BambooHR created an infographic outlining what employees really want. According to Bamboo HR, “Employees must be valued and respected at work while maintaining a healthy work-life balance or they won’t stay at a job. As long as employees’ pressing needs—empowerment, flexibility in the workplace and fair wages—are met, they’re more willing to tolerate lesser annoyances.”
So, how do you make sure your workforce is engaged and satisfied? Let’s revisit some tips and tricks for keeping your employees happy, whether during times of organizational change or just in their day-to-day work.
- To keep employees happy and motivated, make positive reinforcement a part of your leadership best practices. Additionally, give thanks and recognize employees on a job well done—this empowers employees and gives them the recognition they crave.
- Make sure both your remote and on-site teams are engaged and feel as though their voices are heard. Here are some ideas to create a successful virtual team and help fix a dysfunctional team.
- If your company is in the midst of a major change, stay on top of the rumor mill through transparent communication and make your employees part of the change process.
