According to research on employee satisfaction, good employees seek these intangible benefits from their job:
- A positive work environment every day,
- Feeling valued as an employee,
- Having resources to do the job well,
- Feeling part of the team,
- Up-to-date tools and equipment,
- Challenging work,
- Employer stability, and
- A close commute.
Rewarding employees for a job well done, conducting staff meetings to enhance communication, or offering creative benefits such as flex time and tuition reimbursement are some ways to foster a positive work environment. In addition, close attention to work flow, efficiency, and other components of practice operation can minimize stress in the workplace.
If you need to address employee satisfaction issues in your practice, TMA Practice Consulting can help through a business office assessment, on-site training for staff, or development of a policies and procedures manual. Each of these services will be customized to the unique aspects of your practice.
