According to a survey undertaken by a leading recruitment specialist among people who had left a job in the last 12 months, the main reason cited was lack of career growth opportunities.
Along with assisting employees with their work/life balance and offering competitive salaries, providing a transparent and clear career path can go a long way for employers who want to hold onto talented individuals.
Following a survey of training consultants, White and Mackenzie-Davey (2003) published the findings of a study to examine what makes employees feel valued by their employer. White and Mackenzie-Davey (2003) define feeling valued as a “positive response arising from confirmation of an individual’s possession of qualities on which worth or desirability depends.”
How to Feel Valued at Work
There are 2 sides to feeling valued at work.
- Recognition and acknowledgement that an individual’s qualities, including attitude or work ethic, and skills, are valued by the company
- Structures that help define our experience of the workplace, such as a clear path for career progression and employee prospects
A valued employee is a happy one. And a happy employee is a loyal one.
