It’s Not All About the Money Afterall

What really makes employees happy at Work!

There is no doubt that employees expect to be able to pay their bills and maybe have some extra cash on the side. But with the implications of the current financial crisis, many of us have started re-examining our requirements when it comes to choosing a new company or job. While a fat paycheck might be tempting to take on a new job offer, everyday tasks and the company mission and culture can also be major factors in whether you will be content in your position or not.
When talking about employee job satisfaction, a number of relatively universal factors arise that are actually based on very basic psychological needs.... Read More ...

Workplace Competition

Hold your Own in a Competitive Office Jungle!

Employers want the most that they can get from their employees. They are always looking for ways to keep their employees innovative and hardworking with incentives be it monetary, acknowledgment or something else that only the best worker can earn.

If an employee is too relaxed while on the job, he or she will only do the bare minimum and turn in mediocre results. While the word competition means different things to different people, the very nature of the word implies that there will be winners and losers.... Read More ...

What your Boss Won’t Tell you!

The boss-employee story has two sides. While one side is all about the bitter experiences caused by our bosses, the other side clearly shows that employees are not the only ones having a hard time dealing with their bosses. Bosses too get sick of their employees at times; they not only have to stay on top of what their staff is doing, but they also have to deal with all kinds of employees.

Yes we acknowledge the fact that there are bad bosses out there, but despite being bad or unfair; bosses have to stay on top of things and keep an eye on what is going on in the workplace.... Read More ...
