Increasing Job Satisfaction in 2023 Clarify your core values to create happier workers

This compact workshop introduces an exercise to clarify our hierarchy of values.

We will explore a framework which provides a powerful model to understand ways we can assess personal satisfaction and create change at an individual and organisational level.

What is job satisfaction?  “Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.” said Confucius.  Another definition is “…any combination of psychological, physiological, and environmental circumstances that cause a person to truthfully say that they are satisfied with a job.”  It sounds simple, but proves to be complicated.  Why do people leave a job? or do they leave the organisation, or a boss? We shall explore your job satisfiers and those of your team/ employees. Values play a key role.  We shall identify the sorts of conversations to have with others to clarify whether they fit (or not), what matters to them and how to achieve a match.  This discussion could save you and your organisation much heartache and money. 

This event is kindly being hosted by Evelyn Partners.
