172: Happy Employees Value THIS More Than ANYTHING

Do you think signing bigger paychecks will give you more happy employees? It might, but only for about seven percent of them. In this episode, we talk about what makes employees happy – what motivates them to go the extra mile. And it’s got little to do with money and some of the other things you probably expect. From a study written in 2014, here are nine top motivators and the percentage of employees who listed each as their first choice: Camaraderie, peer motivation: 20% Intrinsic desire to do a good job: 17% Feeling encouraged/recognized: 13% Having a real impact: 10% Growing professionally: 8% Meeting client/customer needs: 8% Money and benefits: 7% Positive supervisor and senior management: 4% Belief in the company or product: 4% Looking at this list, we figured out one theme that ties almost half of the bullets together. If you want happy employees, you need to understand the insight we discuss on the podcast. It will increase your employee satisfaction and your bottom line. B
