Mission Accomplished – Employees Satisfied

According to this Society for Human Resource Management (SRHM) report titled, Employee Job Satisfaction and Engagement, employee satisfaction is at it’s highest in 10 years. In addition, their measure of engagement shows the workforce is moderately engaged. I guess the mission of this blog/podcast is complete. Sure the number can always be improved. However, I would say I can shut this down…

Maybe not yet. I’ve started reading the 68 page report to figure out how and what they’re measuring. And I would love to hear from someone at SHRM and Gallup to compare their seemingly disparate outcomes on employee engagement. I’m sure there’s more to come. Please take a look at the reports and let’s work through this together.

One thing that stood out to me: “Compensation has increased in importance. Sixty-three percent of respondents cited it as a contributor to satisfaction, the highest level since 2006.

Here’s the Huffington post article, “Apparently No One Hates Their Job Anymore” that inspired this post.


3 Bits of Inspired and Intentional News

Here’s my first video that I’m promoting. 3 items of news that I found regarding Inspired and Intentional business.

The first is from Huffington Post’s new section called Purpose + Profit. It’s underwritten by PWC, Price Waterhouse Coopers, which is nice and bringing some big names to the movement.

The second is from a LinkedIn story called “.State of HR: Why You Should Fill Your Payroll with Purpose-Driven People” by Aaron Hurst, CEO of Imperative. A study was conducted regarding types of employees, they came up with 3 and I talk about them briefly.

The last one is about Mindy Hall, PhD. I heard her speak to Jeff Brown on the Read to Lead podcast (I keep calling it the Lead to Read cast.) and I want to bring attention to her and her book, Leading with Intention.

Which of these stories resonates with your situation and why?
