Are Your Managers Working to Improve Employee Satisfaction?
Managers Can Help Build Strong Employee Satisfaction
If you have a disengaged workforce, your employee satisfaction rates are likely low. How can you improve satisfaction among employees and motivate them effectively?
A recent Gallup survey showed that 70 percent of employees say they are disengaged at work. There is a good chance the majority of your workforce is similar and doing just enough to keep their jobs. It’s time to help your managers learn how to motivate employees to be more productive and set goals to improve employee satisfaction rates.
The following are mistakes many managers make that negatively affect employee satisfaction rates, and productivity:
- They don’t recognize accomplishments
- They come up with rules that are counterproductive
- They aren’t consistent in hiring practices
- They promote the wrong people
- Poor performance is tolerated
- They don’t keep promises
Conversely, managers have the following workplace practices are achieving more productivity out of their teams:
- They are strong, yet not harsh or overpowering
- They are humble and transparent
- They lead by example
- They recognize that each member needs to be treated in a specific way
- They openly communicate and listen
You don’t need to micromanage your managers to get them on the right track. However, you do need to rely on more than the traditional resume and interview process to make the right choices in who you hire, who your managers hire, how teams are built, and who should be promoted.
