Are You Satisfied at Work?


Robby

The issue of “job satisfaction” is a curious one. On the one hand, jobs are supposed to be something you do to make money to support the rest of your life. Enjoying what you do doesn’t seem all that important. But on the other hand, what if you do like your job? What impact might that have on your productivity, your happiness overall, and society in general?

According to the website Glassdoor, Indianapolis is doing okay, but not great. On a five point scale, the “Work-Life Balance Rating” is 3.1. Our “Job Satisfaction Rating” is 3.2.

A piece from Cleverism makes sixteen recommendations for improving employee satisfaction, all of which sound relevant to life here in Central Indiana. A couple of interesting ones include:

#1 Company’s Financial Stability

Studies have shown that people become more stressed out by things that are unknown to them. If your employees have no idea about your financial bottom-line or are worried about your company going under, be there to reassure them by always keeping your finances more or less transparent.

#10 Relationship with Supervisor

The relationship of an employer with his or her supervisor is very important for an employee’s job satisfaction. This is the person they have to please day in and day out and if their working relationship is one of strain, fear, or contempt, expect a resignation in the very near future.

So make sure that supervisors, while keeping control and authority, are not dread inducing.

#14 Skills Development

By offering your employees development of their skills through education and training, you create motivation and make them more innovative and productive.

Whether you work in a big company or a small one, asking “am I satisfied” is always a good question. If you are, figure out why. And if you aren’t, that could be a sign you need to make some changes.

Good luck, and enjoy!
