Survey reveals optimistic findings regarding employee satisfaction
Tuesday, 13 September 2011 16:00
A total of 78 percent of surveyed workers reported feeling inspired to perform at optimal levels on the job, while another 76 percent said they feel pride for their company.
Researchers noted that organizations that are concerned with helping their workers feel more attached to their positions are likely to end up with stronger employee performance and, in turn, a better bottom line than companies that don't make efforts to engage and retain staff.
"If an organization is going to be able to compete and be profitable in this economy, companies need to look out for those indispensible employees first. These top notch people are too valuable to lose, so knowing the warning signs that they may leave and what to do about it is critical," said Eileen Habelow, Ph.D., Randstad's senior vice president of organizational development.
While the human resources company's findings were largely positive, study authors noted that about 29 percent of even the most engaged workers admitted they would consider changing companies within the next six months.
Employee wellness programs may help staffers feel more appreciated and valued by a company. Moreover, initiatives that include resources for stress management have been shown to ease workplace anxiety and improve employee performance.
