A recent article on The Guardian covered proactive steps employers can take to improve the happiness of their employees. If you’ve ever worked at a job where you were miserable, and then switched to one where you were happy, you know what a huge difference workplace satisfaction can make on your productivity, motivation, and the overall quality of your life in and out of the office.
“More often than not what people really want is the ability to change things for the better, to spend more time with their families or doing the things they really love, to feel like they’re appreciated and rewarded appropriately. It’s straight-forward stuff, so why are so many companies so bad at it? We all know that if you pay peanuts you get monkeys, but if you start treating staff like robots you’re going to get an organisation that very quickly short-circuits.”
–Harriet Minter, writing for The Guardian
The above quote from Ms. Minter’s article is spot-on. When agencies stop treating their people like human beings with interests (both inside and outside the workplace), opinions and financial needs, the effectiveness of the entire company is compromised.
