Job satisfaction and engagement rely on a number of factors. In a tough economy – or even in a boom - disengaged and dissatisfied employees will pursue other opportunities. Fostering an environment that treats all employees equally, as well as one that encourages personal growth, can be an effective means of earning trust from employees and increasing their satisfaction with their jobs. And if employees are satisfied, their performance improves.
Terms like “professional development” and “coaching” are often bandied about, but very few companies help employees master their duties and responsibilities in their current positions. Recent research reported that one-half of organisations have difficulty recruiting highly skilled employees, yet few invest in their existing staff. Companies are even less likely to invest in their lower skilled staff, many of whom are the frontline of the business.
Employees are more likely to feel engaged in their jobs when they feel that their employer is invested in growing their careers!
