Insights on What Employees Want From You

July 22, 2008 – 2:08 pm

Hey Sobel, this one is for you!  ;-)

I’m not sure who gave me the following items that have been taped to my monitor for the past 2 years nor who orginally wrote it but nevertheless, major props to both. 

If you have employees the following may seem simplistic to you. If that is the case, then I challenge you to ask your staff if you are actually doing these things.  Easy to do is also easy to not do. 

Insights on what employees want from you:

-To know where the company is headed and why

-to know their roles, responsibilities and what is expected of them

-to know how they will be evaluated and rewarded

-to utilize their talents in the best way possible

-to feel appreciated and valued - that their work and ideas matter

-to be coached - challenged, motivated and held accountable

-to have the right tools, training and authority to do their jobs

-to contribute in a meaningful way to the company and to its mission

-to grow and develop - to reach their potential

-to have an emotionally connected, competent manager/leader of character support their success

Good luck!
