A growing number of businesses are shifting to prioritize the well-being and satisfaction of their employees – and there is a fast-growing industry of firms selling products related to employee well-being. However, does investing in employee satisfaction lead to higher productivity and tangible benefits to a business’s bottom line? Studies seem to show that the answer is “yes!”

There is a powerful correlation between employee satisfaction and retention, which makes sense! Happy employees will communicate that to customers, too, which supports customer loyalty. 

You may be thinking about shifting your business focus to re-prioritize the happiness and satisfaction of your employees, and I’ve got some great ideas to share with you to help you do just that. 

What Are Some Top Tips I Can Use To Help Me Focus On Employee Happiness And Satisfaction?

Here are a few top tips to use to help you focus on employee well-being:

  • Get the right people in the right seats. Leaders who align employees’ unique skills with the proper role help them transform a job into an art. Your employees will find satisfaction in the types of work unique to them. If your employees like what they’re doing, they’ll put in more effort, and this means they’ll be more likely to succeed and be satisfied. 
  • Let the “whys” be known. If every employee understands how their position contributes to your organization’s excellent vision and purpose, no job will seem unimportant.
  • Like the one you (work) with. Business leaders can’t manage every interpersonal relationship in the office, but they CAN influence who joins the team. Being mindful about new hires and how they will interact with your existing team sets the stage for better employee relationships.
  • Give the gift of a challenge. Conquering new challenges brings a more profound, lasting satisfaction than a reward gained without struggle. Organizations can foster this sense of satisfaction by focusing less on perks and by charting a path for their workforce to achieve their personal and professional goals, instead.
