It’s been said that money isn’t everything and as it turns out it isn’t even one the best ways to keep employees happy.
Many studies have shown that employees with high job satisfaction are more engaged, more loyal and more productive.
Here’s a list of 5 of the best ways to keep employees happy, satisfied and more productive.
1. Encourage a Healthy Work/Life Balance
Create an environment where employees feel connected to, and involved with the organization. Create positive work experiences that compliment a full and balanced life.
2. Recognize and Reward Employees
Tell your employees they did a good job when they do a good job, it’s a simple as that. Show appreciation with something as small as tickets to a movie or a gift card for coffee or to a restaurant.
3. Help Employees be Healthier
Statistics show that healthy employees take fewer sick days and cost less in healthcare. They are also generally more productive. There are four main areas employers should focus on: stress management, physical exercise, nutrition, and health benefits. Some inexpensive ways to get started might include providing healthy snacks in your break room or sharing the cost of gym memberships for your employees.
4. Ask Employees What They Think
Doing an employee satisfaction survey is a good way to find out how your employees are feeling and what they might be thinking. Insights from employees can often lead to higher job satisfaction, increased productivity and more positive and creative work environments.
5. Stay Connected
Taking an employee out to lunch or having a department dinner or even a one on one conversation at the end of the day goes a long way to strengthen the bond between a manager and an employee and lets them know they matter.
