It is of no secret that people by their "default" nature do not really incline towards the job they perform on a day-to-day basis. Over the years there have been many studies/ researches done on the topic to understand what causes the phenomenon in such a large scale. After all, more than 85% of the people actively reported that they do not like their job at all. The ultimate effect of all that “unsatisfactory” work experience of the staff? Poor quality of product/ services that your company provides which ultimately means Low Revenue.
So, what is the reason for such a staggering percentage of “unhappy” employees? There must a common link that binds all the business organizations together that ultimately leads to most of their employees/ Staffs being unsatisfactory, right? The most obvious reason that one can think of is due to “boring” workplace environment. However, if we assume that all the workplace in every business company is boring, then that would be illogical.
The simple matter of the fact is that people do not quit their job or underperform because they find their workplace boring or unmotivated. Yes, it is one of THE reasons, but it is not the only reason why staffs quit their job.
Did you know that approximately 96.7% of the people working for a certain business organization aka employees do not express their unhappiness or dissatisfaction towards their company? And according to multiple studies, this nature of “hesitation” is the leading cause of employees quitting their job or underperforming in many cases. So, what is the most logical solution? Well, the most appropriate and effective way of tackling this problem is to give your employees a voice or a mechanism which allows constant engagement between them and the higher officials through which they can express their workplace experience aka Staff Engagement Survey.
You can never underestimate the efficiency of giving your staffs a voice. Some people remain skeptical of implementing such a technique in the workplace just because it is apparently "too much" to deal with. That's rather a stupidity, isn't it? if you are dedicated to improving your product or the services that your company provides, keeping intact with your staff's workplace satisfaction should be your utmost priority, and staff engagement survey provides the most appropriate and effective solution.
Gathering data from your employees in the form of feedbacks can finally encourage them to express their respective opinions. Now, that does not necessarily mean you will have to entirely change the work culture in your office by implementing every single change that they voice. After all, some people tend to have a rather "ideal" workplace scenario which would be otherwise impossible to implement. But, those are all the little things that you and the management team can filter out once the feedback data comes in.
In any case, by implementing an online feedback system from your staffs, you will be able to get a much clearer and detailed idea of what your employees expect from their workplace. This helps you get to the root of what causes the dip in their performance level and, thus your company’s revenue as well.
Keeping engaged with your staffs using the appropriate feedback system can indeed elevate and enhance the final performance outcome or work performance. Studies have also shown that constant engagement with the employees can produce much more significant and positive results as high as up to 3-times more work efficiency in the workplace. The logic is rather simple, really. No one wants to walk to into an office and suffer for 30 days and withdraw their salary on the first day of the new month (and repeat that over and over again).
Whereas, an engaged staff with a clear perspective of what they need to achieve and management that cares for them? Is that too hard to understand?
