The Key to Employee Satisfaction & Engagement:
Personal & Professional Development
The ability for employees of all levels in an organization to grow, both personally and professionally, is a key component to employee satisfaction, engagement and retention. This is particularly true for Millennial workers, a generation that is often characterized as obsessed with self-improvement.
Employees who find an outlet for self-development within their organization report higher satisfaction. A recent case study on employee satisfaction with UBS (a Swiss bank employing 65,000 people) measured their performance in this area and found that employee satisfaction was significantly below that of high-performing organizations.
