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?
