    Harder working employees? 

    Our staff are probably one of our most valuable business assets that we have but then also, one of the most expensive. So it’s not surprising that in these challenging times businesses have reacted by cutting these costs, to preserve themselves.

    Some have gone on a culling spree, laying off staff whilst others have cut staff pay. There have even been those who’ve fired staff and cut the pay of their remaining staff. I’ve not heard of any that have raised their staff salaries as part of this mix, in an effort to make them work harder, become more productive for the business.

    An interesting article by Ray Fisman, professor at the Columbia Business School, ‘Raises don’t make employees work harder’ looks at, if pay rises increase staff productivity, but I’m interested in what your experience is, how do you leverage your most expensive asset, especially in these times?

    Unhappy at work – but have no plans to change job 

    A recent survey, conducted by Accenture of 3,400 employees across 29 countries showed the startling amount of dissatisfaction employee’s feel at work.

    Although a feeling of underpay was one of the factors causing this unhappiness there were a myriad of other factors which had nothing to do with money and which could be alleviated if only we started to communicate better with our employees, made them feel valued, showed them a future of where the Company is going and how they are an integral part of that vision. Connection and Motivation!

    The survey found that whilst 43% of women and 42% of men of all respondents were unsatisfied with their current jobs, 70% of women and 69% of men would remain with their current employers doing their existing jobs.  The question that plays about in my mind is; How effective are these employee if this is the way that they are feeling?

    How do you know that your employees are not feeling this way? What can you do? please comment. What are your thoughts?
