Do You Hate Your Job?

workCan’t get excited about going to work in the morning?

Don’t like the atmosphere at work?

Prefer not to be with your co-workers?

Do you even like your job?

If you answered, NO, you join more than half of all workers who say they just can’t get excited about their jobs!

So what is going here?

Employers have tried offering incentives to help people like their jobs more. While perks certainly don’t add to job dissatisfaction, the experts say getting people to like their jobs takes more than adding a few toys and privileges. Turns out that perks are not that associated with job satisfaction. People enjoy the perks, but don’t stay at a job long term just for the fun.

Instead, it’s the fundamentals of the work environment that matter:

Getting a pay raise.

Having works tasks that are stimulating.

Having a boss who isn’t a jerk!

Being able to voice your opinion.

Being rewarded for working together.

Having flexible work hours.

Rewarding productivity.

Basically, job satisfaction comes down to collaborative management styles, teamwork, and rewarding people who work well with a variety of people and perform well.

So if you are a company that thinks adding perks is a substitute for a healthy work environment, think again. Forget the toys and rethink your policies and and training. A healthy work culture is what people want to go to everyday!
