As long as bosses are savvy when they are on the lookout for office space to rent, they should succeed in finding premises that fall within their budgets and that suit the needs of their workers.
Highlighting the importance of this issue, Colin Day from software-as-a-service provider iCIMS recently noted that unless managers keep their personnel happy, there is a risk they will leave “for greener pastures”.
Making his comments on BusinessNewsDaily, he pointed out that productivity can also suffer when employees do not feel good in their working environments.
The expert suggested that finding the right office space should be a priority for bosses. About this, he remarked: “Businesses need to provide employees with a comfortable office environment where they can get their work finished without distraction.”
Of course, there are other issues that firms need to focus on. For example, enterprises require strong directors capable of putting the “right strategies, systems, processes and people in place”, he suggested.
In addition, they need effective managers who can “help their employees do their jobs better by removing obstacles and providing useful training”.
Another tip offered by Mr Day concerned remuneration. On this topic, he stated: “At the end of the day, employees want to feel they are earning a fair salary. Maintaining a strong compensation package keeps employees happy.”
One of the ways in which his company has attempted to boost staff morale is by introducing an internal website dubbed the iWatercooler, which is designed to enable the organisation to share information with workers. According to Mr Day, this technology helps create transparency and ensures that employees know what is really happening.
As long as bosses put enough thought towards maintaining worker satisfaction, they stand a better chance of recruiting and retaining the best personnel and consequently of achieving long-term success.
