The Top 10 Motivators of U.S. Employees
In a 10-part series, Robert Gray, President of Insightlink Communications, answers this question based on results from Insightlink’s Survey of the American Workplace. Through this annual survey, completed by thousands of U.S. employees, Insightlink has identified the 10 most critical influences on job satisfaction and can also show how well most companies are performing on these same factors. In this series, Robert will summarize each of these drivers and give practical direction on what action really needs to be taken.
It may sound obvious but the single most important motivator of job satisfaction is to enjoy the work that you do. U.S. organizations are doing okay on this measure – about seven-in-ten employees agree that they find their work enjoyable, although only one-in-four agree strongly about this.
“I love working with people. I take great pride and satisfaction in the work we accomplish. It seems to be of value and help to our clients. I feel part of something 'bigger' and 'greater' and love being a part of that.”
“The people I work with are all very supportive and have great attitudes, which in turn makes me feel good and reciprocate the same. My job allows me to do more than just the same thing on a daily basis, so I am never bored. I love the flexible work schedule because sometimes life happens and it is great to work with understanding people.”
Recommended Action Steps
Because this is such a key factor, there is room for improving the level of enjoyment in most companies and here are some suggestions to accomplish that:
