The real reason people quit their job and look for a new one is that they feel underappreciated. In surveys by the American Psychological Association, half of all employees who said they did not feel valued at work also said they intend to look for a new job in the next year.Overall, the research showed that employees who do feel valued are more likely to have better physical and mental health and higher levels of engagement, satisfaction and motivation.The study was based on surveys of more than 1,700 full and part-time employees in the USA.More than 90 per cent of workers who reported feeling valued said they were motivated to do their best at work, and 88 per cent reported feeling engaged, the study found.That compared with just 33 per cent and 38 per cent, respectively, of those who don't feel respected in the office.According to the study, overall 21 per cent of working Americans do not feel valued by their employers.A variety of factors is to blame — those surveyed cited having fewer opportunities for involvement in workplace decision-making, being dissatisfied with the potential for growth and advancement, having few opportunities to use flexible work arrangements, and feeling they were not receiving adequate compensation and non-monetary rewards.The American Psychological Association honoured a number of businesses at its seventh annual Psychologically Healthy Workplace Awards ceremony in Washington, D.C., and 78 per cent of the employees of the winning companies said they would recommend their organisation to others as a good place to work."Successful organisations have learned that high performance and sustainable results require attention to the relationships among employee, organisation, customer and community," David Ballard, head of the APA's Psychologically Healthy Workplace Programme, said. — ANI- (Courtesy The Tribune)
The same kind of survey should be conducted on postal employees particularly INSPECTOR cadre who are leaving their job for better avenues and pay scale. Had there been justice to this discriminated cadre this would not have been the position and the department may have placed at a better position in the eyes of public. Autocracy as is the position in some circles is the other reason for leaving the department particularly by direct IPs. As far as GP issue is concerned, we have got justice from Hon’ble CAT and we will definitely get GP at par with other inspectors. For this no need to worry. We have to think for others issues.
