With many companies still operating under tight budgets, developing new employees remains a crucial aspect of the recruiting process. Identifying what employees value the most when it comes to job satisfaction can therefore be critical.
In a new survey of a wide range of professionals and managers conducted by staffing services company, employees said that a strong work-life balance and opportunities for growth and learning on the job were two of the most important factors in keeping them happy.
The ability to accomplish specific goals, a camaraderie with one's co-workers and a good working relationship with the boss were also high on the list, the study found.
"Professional priorities change over time," Robert Hosking, executive director of the company, said in a release. "Because there's no one-size-fits-all formula for encouraging job satisfaction, supervisors should get to know their team members individually to better understand what motivates and inspires each of them."
Workers holding jobs in Arizona and across the country can maintain a good work-life balance by managing their boundaries, according to a recent Boston Globe article. This means taking time to schedule activities that are important to you every day, and making sure that you are able to do these things.
