Employee Surveys Provide Valuable Information to Help You Succeed
Opening a new business involves many tedious tasks. You have to acquire the financing to fund your new endeavor. You have to acquire a physical location for your business. You have to make sure you follow all the rules and regulations pertaining to operating a business. You also have to hire employees. Once you have all your ducks in a row, you can launch your business. Hopefully, it will be a success.
If your business is not a success, before you give up, consider the benefits of employee surveys. Surveys provide your employees with an anonymous way to tell you exactly how they feel about their job. You need to know how your employees feel, because employee satisfaction or dissatisfaction can have a great effect on the success of your business. If your employees are unhappy, they are not going to give their best to your business.
They are not going to go above and beyond. They are not going to care about your success. On the other hand, if your employees are happy, they will want nothing more than to see your business succeed; not only for you, but for them, too. Employee satisfaction and success go hand in hand.
Insightlink Communications is here to help you find out exactly how your employees feel about their jobs, about your operating procedures, about everything pertinent to your business. With clear, honest answers, you can locate the areas that need change, make the necessary changes, and start seeing your business become the success you always knew it could be.

Disengaged Employees can be Hard on Your Business
Any business owner understands the importance of keeping employees happy. Disengaged employees do not care about the success of the business. They are disengaged from it – they are not bound to it, nor do they feel a sense of loyalty to it. In other words, they come to work simply because they have to work, not because they want to be there.
Keeping your employees happy and engaged helps to ensure the overall success of your business. Happy employees are productive employees. They do not call in sick to work as often, they work harder to help the business succeed, and they feel a sense of loyalty to you, the employer.
Here at Insightlink Communications, we want to help you keep your employees happy and engaged. That is why we offer surveys that you can give your employees to gain their insight into the operation of your business. You are the owner – you may not understand what a day-to-day employee faces.

An Employee Satisfaction Survey Report Shows You Where You Need to Change
Have you ever given an employee satisfaction survey report consideration? As a business owner, you should definitely consider the benefits of such a survey.
This type of survey seeks to find out how satisfied your employees are, because the more satisfied your employees are, the better they will work for your business. It does not take a genius to figure out that if someone hates their job, they are only going to do the bare minimum to keep that job. It is just a paycheck for them, and if they can find something better, they will. A satisfaction survey tells you how happy your employees are, so you can make any changes deemed necessary.
Once you have the results of your survey, you can locate areas that need change. Just because you think that you are operating your business the right way does not make it so. There is every chance that you may need to make some changes in your operations to keep your workers happy. While these surveys can be hard to read, sometimes – no one wants to read about how unhappy their workers are – it is important that you know the truth.
Only with the truth will you finally be able to create a working environment that keeps your workers happy – and helps to ensure the success of your business.Read full post
Disengaged Employees Can Be Damaging to Your Business
Keeping your employees engaged and active in the overall operation of your business is essential to your success. It is actually pretty simple – when people care about something, they work harder to protect it. This includes businesses. Think of it like this – if you have a hobby that you love, when you work on your hobby, you give it your all. You take your time to make sure you do everything right. You take pride in it. The same holds true for businesses.
Disengaged employees can quickly lead to your downfall. They do not take pride in their jobs. In many cases, they could not care less about what happens to the business. It is just another job to them. Engaged employees, on the other hand, take pride in the business. They want to see it succeed; they care about its success. They do everything they can to ensure its success. These are the kind of employees you want operating your business.
These are the kind of employees you can count on to protect your business and help make it successful.Read full post

Not really any surprise here, but it appears that getting a cash bonus is the top choice for what employees want from their employers as a holiday perk.
Ensure Success with an Employee Satisfaction Survey
The overall satisfaction of your employees can
tell you a lot about the expected success of your business. The satisfaction of
employees and their productivity go hand in hand. If your employees are unhappy
and unsatisfied with their jobs, they are not going to work nearly as hard as
they would if they were satisfied. With an employee
satisfaction survey, you can find out how satisfied your employees are in a
private, anonymous method.
How to Show Employee Loyalty?
This may be the ultimate expression of employee committment and loyalty, although I'm not sure it's for everyone. The owner of a real estate company in New York is giving its 800 employees a unique loyalty incentive – a permanent 15% raise in exchange for getting a tattoo of the company logo. The owner got the idea when one of his employees voluntarily had the complay logo tattooed on his arm. Thinking this was "cool" Anthony Lolli decided to offer the rest of his employees a straight 15% raise if they also had the company logo tattooed on their bodies in any size (or place) that they chose. So far 40 people have taken him up on the offer. Would you?Read full post
