If you're a manager or supervisor, it's your job to make sure your staff not only gets the work done, but finds fulfillment in their jobs. If you don't, you'll spend a lot more time than necessary in the hiring and training cycle because unfulfilled employees don't tend to stick around.
While keeping employees happy may sometimes seem like mission impossible, following a few guidelines will help most of your employees feel good about the time they spend at work. This week's Fulfillment Tips offers four simple ways to give employees more reasons to stay on the job than to leave it.
If you're an employee, let management know what you want. Start with this list, then customize it for your specific needs. You spend a lot of time at work - you deserve to be fulfilled by it.
