What Employers Can Give Employees

Study after study shows the breakdown between what employers perceive their employees want (generally pay and benefits) and what employees actually want. What’s particularly fascinating is what employees REALLY want are not budget-busters, but better management.

This article in the Christian Science Monitor identifies seven things employees want most. None of them cost a dime – but may need a strong manager to focus on providing:

1. Appreciation
2. Respect
3. Trust
4. Individual Growth
5. A Good Boss
6. Compatible Co-Workers
7. A Sense of Purpose

Time for a honest reality check: are your employees getting this from you?
