Who’s Responsible for Employee Satisfaction – HR?
Human resource professionals know that employee satisfaction is important to the success of the company where they work. This means they will need to play a major role in the happiness of their employees. Not only will happy employees improve the culture of the office, but also the bottom line of the business. In today’s post, we will discuss the best ways for HR administrators to improve employee happiness.
Offer a Positive Work Environment
A positive work environment is not only key to the happiness of employees, but also the success of the company as a whole. If your workplace is not positive, you cannot expect your employees to be happy when they show up for work each day.
Encourage Employee Engagement
Employee satisfaction leans heavily on whether or not employees are engaged in what they are doing. If their work is boring or tedious, they might not meet deadlines or perform to the best of their abilities. Your employees need to feel they are helping the company succeed and that they are part of something bigger than just their individual jobs.
Recognize Hard Work
HR administrators who want to increase employee happiness should recognize hard work. Your employees might be working a ton of overtime, meeting tough deadlines and submitting stellar work, but no one knows about it because your company does not recognize the work. If you want your employees to be happy, recognize their hard work with an award or by simply mentioning what they did at the next department meeting.
Encourage and Provide Training
Workers do not want to remain stuck in the same job for years. They want to develop new skills and advance in their careers. Companies that offer training programs, or help pay for employees to go back to school, will see an increased level of satisfaction and happiness from their employees.
Strong Orientation Program
Companies need to begin thinking about employee happiness from the minute they step through the door on their first day of the job. This can be done by offering a strong orientation program for your new employees. This will help them learn about the company and ensure they are happy from day one.The bottom line here is that employee satisfaction and happiness are important to the success of the company. These tasks are also placed on the HR administrators at the company. They need to develop policies and programs that make employees happy while on the job.
