  1. Great tips! I would like to build on that and say that it is also highly important to give employees a sense of trust and ownership in their work. While benefits are an important aspect of job satisfaction, I’ve noticed that many employees feel happier when they are able to make relevant decisions regarding their day-to-day tasks. Furthermore, leaders/managers should make an effort to be as open as possible towards any problems that may arise among their staff.

    Communication is key. If you let your employees know that you want to know how they feel, then they will speak up.

  3. Employees are happy if they have the freedom and the benefits. It also helps to do regular surveys to know what they want.

  4. Wow, look at those stats. Didn’t expect that compensation would only be a percent higher than communication. This only means that employees are not always after the money.

    Interesting to see that communication is ranked so high by employees. Internal social media activities should be a perfect tool for communication throughout the organization.

  6. Very interesting set of results! Happy employees are so critical to a thriving business!
    I agree with Thea’s comment that ownership of their work and participation in decision-making are extremely important.
    Other “happiness factors” revolve around personal and professional growth. Providing both interesting work challenges and appropriate training and support for the task can clearly contribute to more employee satisfaction. This could be another field of action for business leaders who want to keep their employees happy.
