Quality employees are what make successful companies, which is why smart employers pay attention to employee satisfaction. However, they may still be missing the mark.
According to recent CareerBuilder research, more than half of workers say they consider their current position a job and not a long-term career. Similarly, 39 percent say they are under-employed, and the same number aspire to be in a leadership position, but aren’t there yet.
What does this mean for you?
Maintaining employee satisfaction is always going to be one of the trickiest challenges facing HR professionals. Like anyone, employees’ wants and needs are fluid and difficult to anticipate.
The most important tool employers have in keeping their employees happy is communication. Simply starting the conversation with your workers about their career goals and prospects can have a great effect on their morale and their commitment to the organization.
