Do you lead a productive and inspired team? Do you promote a fun workplace where employee satisfaction is a key focus? According to new research, Australian employees give their workplace happiness a rating of 68 out of 100, yet only 62% of the workforce are engaged in their jobs.
To create an engaged and inspired workforce it is important to understand the many factors that contribute to workplace happiness. The top factors influencing workplace happiness include cultivating an environment where employees are treated fairly and with respect, building a sense of empowerment and showing appreciation for a job well done, and offering a competitive salary package.
Staff engagement is not a one-size-fits all approach, and to lead a happy team you will need to actively seek out what makes each one of your staff members tick individually.
