Employee Satisfaction

Employee satisfaction is a measure of how content workers are with their job and working environment. Keeping morale high among the workers can be of tremendous benefit to any company. Pleased workers will be more likely to produce more, take fewer days off, and stay loyal to the company. In contrast, if an employee is not satisfied with his or her working conditions or job, he/she might not perform in accordance to what is expected from him/her.

Although there is numerous ways to measure employee satisfaction, many companies prefer to conduct surveys and or face-to-face meetings with employees to gain information. Surveys are often anonymous, allowing workers more freedom to be honest without fear of retaliation. On the other hand, interviews with company management can feel intimidating, but if done correctly it can let the worker know that their voice has been heard and their concerns will be addressed. Surveys and meetings can truly get to the center of the data surrounding employee satisfaction, and can be great tools to identify specific problems leading to lowered morale.

Experts believe that one of the best ways to maintain employee satisfaction is to make workers feel like part of a family or team. Holding office events, such as parties or group outings, can help build close bonds among workers. Many companies also participate in team-building retreats that are designed to strengthen the working relationship of the employees in a non-work related setting. Raises and bonuses can also affect employee satisfaction, and should be given when possible. Whether it’s through office events or a bonus, employee satisfaction is an important factor to the company’s overall performance.
