Quick Tips #13: The Five Ways You Can Help Remote Employees Increase Their Job Satisfaction

Written by Injoy Global Co-Founder & COO, Jeff Baietto on June 15, 2020

When we first entered the COVID-19 remote working environment, most companies were just looking for ways to help their employees cope. But as our “new normal” drags on, businesses should now seek ways to help their remote employees do more than just survive.

In fact, they should be making every effort to help these workers grow, thrive – and even increase their satisfaction with their jobs. Employees with high levels of job satisfaction are more productive, creative, innovative – and valuable.

Here are 5 tips you can use to help your employees improve job satisfaction.

1. Encourage Them to Practice Daily Gratitude – taking time to pause, acknowledge the things that are going well – and give thanks for them - can help your employees’ short- and long-term output, career success and life.

Practicing daily gratitude has been proven to improve physical and psychological health – while lowering stress levels, heightening empathy and increasing personal fulfillment.

2. Take Up Journaling – Writing down your thoughts and emotions can have an enormously positive impact on your life. When practiced regularly, it can help you prioritize problems, clarify goals and monitor progress.

Keeping a daily journal will enable employees to reflect on their jobs, their lives – and what they want out of both. This can help them identify where they want to be – and set a course for getting there.

3. Celebrate Their Victories – Today’s go-go-go mentality often pushes us to move on immediately to our next task – almost as soon as we’ve finished the last one.

But employees really should take the time to acknowledge, examine and revel in their successes. In addition to boosting confidence and satisfaction – it will give them the opportunity to understand and appreciate what went well – so they can replicate those behaviors in the future.

4. Remind Them of the Values for Which They are Working – Positive corporate cultures are based on equally positive goals, beliefs and missions. Doing their part to achieve such lofty aspirations can give employees great personal satisfaction.

Effective cultural improvement programs work to connect employees’ daily activities to these higher goals. Making it much easier to work hard in their jobs – and take pride in the ultimate outcome.

5. Facilitate Their Relationships with Fellow Employees – Many employees draw great personal satisfaction from their relationships with their co-workers. It can give them a tremendous sense of comradery, friendship, teamwork and shared purpose.

This can be a challenge for some co-workers, however, as they usually do not interact with their fellow employees face to face. This reduces the chance they can get to know one another on a personal level.

Companies that employ a cloud-based culture improvement software like Injoy Global’s Culti-vate Culture Reinforcement Platform can help overcome this, as this software connects everyone throughout the organization, no matter where they are. This can lead to deeper personal connections, lifelong relationships – and greater job satisfaction.

The post-COVID-19 world will definitely see more remote workers than before. But if you follow these tips, you can help your employees increase their job satisfaction no matter where they are working.

We’ll get through this.
