Company leaders are beginning to recognise that celebrating employees’ accomplishments and valuing their feedback are essential in managing and supporting engaged and productive staff, maintaining morale and motivation, and reducing the risk of burnout. However, there remains a significant percentage of employees who still feel undervalued and unheard in their workplace.
According to new research from WorkForce Software, as many as 75% of employees feel that they would choose to work for an employer who regularly asked for feedback over those who did not. Plus, the study shows that discrepancies between employers’ and employees’ workplace experience ratings are closing, but the time is now for employers to turn this awareness into action.
“As the workplace continues to evolve, it’s imperative that employees and employers grow closer in meeting expectations when it comes to the workplace experience. Understanding your employees’ needs and addressing them in a way that supports business requirements will result in a more productive and motivated workforce and will help retain and recruit top talent across all levels and job roles,” said Mike Morini, CEO of WorkForce Software. “A company’s greatest asset is the employees, so ensuring you are on the same page as they are and working towards a common goal is extremely important in today’s competitive market.”
