Do you think employers ‘Really Care’ about their employees these days or is it all just about … Statistics, Time – Money, Customer Satisfaction or Something Else?

 

Everyone loves a bit of banter, some discussion, topical talk, well that’s what MWF Question Time is all about.

  1. I work for a non-profit, and as a manager, I care about the well-being of my staff. I try to keep things fun by having lunch dates, birthday celebrations, and allowing them to come in late or leave early from time to time when I sense they are overwhelmed. Giving them comp time when they work over, and letting them know that as long as their work is caught up, I really don’t care if they want to take half the day to explore Pinterest or online shop or whatever, but the higher-ups here aren’t so understanding. I think they have good intentions, but they forget that people have lives outside of work and they get caught up in statistics, and push deadlines. My agency is great about “Oh, you’re good at your job? Here’s 10 more things I expect you to do, but I’m not going to give you more time, yet I expect you to still do your regular job as well, and have all of this completed by the deadline. Oh yeah, and I’m not going to increase your pay for this extra work either.” I have had to put my foot down many times and say “Look, I’m only one person, and while I appreciate your confidence in me, what you’re asking isn’t humanly possible. I will work hard to succeed, but I refuse to allow myself to become so overwhelmed that I feel like I can’t breathe.” It’s tough, it really is.

    1. Hey Kristian, totally agree that the caring % is small unless you are in a position to acknowledge people and display that care.

      However most employers these days do forget that people are people, and are only interested in filling their pockets with more green.

  2. Some do, some absolutely don’t but my experience is that people who are happy, stay. I’m not working at the moment because I’m half heartedly looking in other states but i do work in HR. I make damn sure I thank people, acknowledge their life events, remember their birthdays, ask how they’re doing, I firmly believe smiling and being pleased to see them makes people feel better so I do. I tease and make jokes and I will stop my work to
    Listen to someone even if that means I’ll work through my lunch hour or stay late. It’s a lot easier to retain than constantly recruit so valuing employees – in my opinion – is critical to a Companies success.

    1. Totally, as an ex- manager my key to success was always acknowledging and thanking my staff. People make the world spin. One of my biggest boiling points is how employers treat their staff like shit and then still expect so much from them.

  3. In my experience so far employers don’t care about the staff just how much work they can get out of them for the lest amount of money. 😞😠
