“There are only three measures that tell you nearly everything you need to know about your organization’s overall performance: employee engagement, customer satisfaction, and cash flow. It goes without saying that no company, small or large, can win over the long run without energized employees who believe in the mission and understand how to achieve it.”
– Jack Welch, former CEO of General Electric.
Do your people see the positives in their work? For many people, balancing job demands (negatives) and job resources (positives) can be tricky. As a manager, it’s important to be aware of the job demands that your people are experiencing, and to promote the job resources/positives that improve their engagement at work.
By using the Job Demands-Resources (JD-R) Model, you can give your team members the support they need to be happy. You can reduce their stress levels, increase their motivation, and create a supportive working environment.
