To be appreciated and valued by your company can manifest itself in a variety of different ways, dependent on the needs of the employee and the type of company.
Monetary incentives and rewards such a pay raises or promotions, may incite a feeling of value in the employee. Others may feel valued by being offered flexible hours or by simply being told that they are doing a great job from their manager or team.
Regardless of its form, the unparalleled benefits for a companies’ productivity, culture, creativity, and innovation, as a result of them valuing their employees, is both enormous and undeniable.
Company benefits from employees feeling valued:
Employee recognition increases individual productivity: If an employee is recognised for their work, they’ll be more invested in their work, and more likely to put in the extra effort. A happy employee is a productive employee!
Recognition increases team productivity: Positive reinforcement helps employees gain confidence, and as a result, a more positive work environment is created.
Breeds more loyal employees: When employees feel valued and recognised for their hard work, you’ll see more loyal company employees as a result.
Keeping this in mind, we wondered if Australian companies are actually doing enough to make their employees feel valued. So, in true LiveHire fashion, we took it to the Australian workers and asked the following question:
Do you feel valued by your company for the work you do?
46% of Australian workers responded “Yes“,
With 54% of workers responding “No“, not feeling valued by their company for the work they do. [tweetthis remove_twitter_handles=”true” remove_hidden_hashtags=”true”]54% of workers do not feel valued by their company for the work they do @LiveHireme[/tweetthis]
Knowing what we know about the enormous benefits to an organisation as a whole, it’s a wonder that more companies aren’t doing more to show their employees that they value them.
Is it times for companies to start appreciating their staff more?
