How to Gauge Employee Satisfaction


Posted by Insightlink on 10/16/13

If you are a new business owner, you may not realize the importance of keeping your employees satisfied. You may be under the impression that, given the uncertain economic times, any employee will be happy just to have a job in the first place.

Yes, employees will be happy to have a job – but that does not mean that they will be happy with their job. It is quite common for workers to be unhappy with their jobs. They stay, not out of loyalty, but out of a need for a paycheck. When the chance for something even slightly better comes along, they take it, leaving you in a lurch. That is why you must make sure that you regularly evaluate the happiness and satisfaction of your employees. You can do this through a number of methods. You can talk to your workers at monthly meetings, but you may not get honest answers. Your workers may fear losing their jobs if they complain to you.

You can put out a suggestion box for workers to leave their suggestions and comments about the workplace. Again, you may not get honest answers, because they may fear that someone will recognize their handwriting or see them putting a suggestion in the box.

The best way to gauge the happiness of your employees is with an employee attitude survey. Here at Insightlink Communications, we specialize in creating surveys specifically for finding out how happy or unhappy workers are with their jobs.
