“How do I feel about today?” is the question that I always ask myself when I wake up every morning. My thoughts are about an effective working day with my great co-workers. I am also happy to work with a boss who is a coach and mentor, rather than a dictator and executive manager. Instead of boring working shells, the workplace of my company is designed creatively with modern and young spaces. It is very difficult for employees to find a great company with “ideal jobs”.
While there is no one, perfect job out there, governments could greatly improve workers’ morale by analyzing aspects of the type of work, work environment, and job benefits that are considered ideal and making changes to laws to ensure working.
Aspects of type of work will help both employers and employee in some ways. First, by understanding the aspects of type of work, people are able to find the jobs that suit for them.
For example, people have language skills should work in jobs that need to communicate with others. With their language skills, they have good relationships with customers, co-workers, and employers that help them accomplish their targets. Second, employers should use aspects of type of work to build standards of their companies’ jobs. With these standards, employers can locate tasks for the right people and accurately assess their employees’ performance.
The working environment is a broad concept that includes all that is relevant, directly influencing the activity and development, enhancing individual’s performance.
The first factor of environment is facilities that are necessary for employees to complete work quickly, efficiently. The work area should be equipped with sufficient equipment for work. In many companies, beside of focusing on investing in high-tech equipment for doing work, employers also invests in entertainment areas such as break rooms where workers can truly relax and refresh themselves. Entertainment areas are very important for boosting productivity and keeping employees happy. The relationship between managers and employees is also an important factor affecting employees’ productivity. When employees feel respected and satisfied about themselves, they will be motivated to work. Employees should also have respect for their superiors. If both have respect for each other, there are positive working attitude in their companies.
Benefits will be one of the motivations for achieving sustainable business success. Basic benefits include a monthly salary that meets the basic needs of the employees. If the employee receives a good salary that deserves their ability in working, they will try their best to create the success of the company. The benefits also determine the long-term commitment of employees to the company. Benefits will be the most important things that employees look at when they look for jobs. Beside of a salary, employers can choose many optional benefits to offer employees, such as Health Care Insurance, Life Insurance, and Retirement Plans. Many employers of large companies on the world claimed that their success is due to their focus on building employee benefits.
Aspects of the type of work, work environment, and job benefits are very important for both employees and employers. The employers want to find qualified persons for their companies’ human resources. On the other hand, employees dream about deal jobs. They should understand these aspects for contributing together to the development of their companies.
