In a 2008 SHRM Satisfaction Survey Report, employees identified job security, benefits, compensation/pay, feeling safe, and communication as the five most important aspects of their job satisfaction.
It’s interesting to note that this is the first time in years that job security ranked No. 1. In reality, there’s only one form of job security: doing a positive job, in a positive manner, where there is positive cash flow.
Wise employees will identify precisely what constitutes excellent performance, what types of attitudes are expected, and “open up” the books. To learn about the benefits of open book management, read Jack Stack’s book, The Great Game of Business.
