Matters that Affect Employee Experience

Transparent and frequent communication plays a significant role in the smooth functioning of an organisation. Other than giving employees a sense of belonging, efficient communication enhances their employee experience. 

However, according to TG Group’s online poll, only 30% of respondents are fully informed of what is going on in their company, 35% say their employers keep them fairly well informed and 30% receive limited information.  

Internal communication is crucial, and company news or messages can be relayed to employees with clarity through emails or verbal communication by team leaders. Besides, townhalls and group discussions are also efficient avenues to keep employees updated on happenings in the company.  

There are so many channels and expectations when it comes to effective employee communication. Organisations must set their internal communication according to their environment and employee needs.  

Increase Employees’ Job Satisfaction

On another note, we also did a survey on the ways organisations use to increase employee job satisfaction.  

Out of all the respondents, 57% say they respect the work and life boundaries. Besides, 22% engage in employee interaction with a personal touch and 17% states being authentic as vital.  

All three ways are tied to empathy. It is an important driver of employee outcomes such as innovation, engagement, and inclusion especially in the post-pandemic time. Managers are required to connect, identify and understand the perspectives of their team members. 

An empathetic approach helps a team leader collect employee feedback and relate to their different perspectives. With the gathered opinions, the team leader can improve the work process and environment for a better employee experience. 

A manager with a hands-on approach, respects work-life balance, and communicates well will be perceived by employees as an authentic superior. Such management style helps to increase employees’ job satisfaction.
