This url was “tweeted” to me today and I thought it was worth sharing.  It’s from a great blogger: Gretchen Rubin.

She’s written a list of questions employees should ask themselves when considering their own job satisfaction.  If you’re a manager who wants to create a happier and more productive work environment, you might want to consider if your employees can answer “yes” to the following questions:

1. Do I know what is expected of me at work?

2. Do I have the materials and equipment I need to do my work right?

3. At work, do I have the opportunity to do what I do best every day?

4. In the last seven days, have I received recognition or praise for doing good work?

5. Does my supervisor, or someone at work, seem to care about me as a person?

6. Is there someone at work who encourages my development?

7. At work, do my opinions seem to count?

8. Does the mission/purpose of my company make me feel like my work is important?

9. Are my co-workers committed to doing quality work?

10. Do I have a best friend at work?

11. In the last six months, have I talked with someone about my progress?

12. This last year, have I had opportunities at work to learn and grow?

Can you say YES to all of these questions?
