From job portal statistics it’s clear that ads with a specified salary are viewed more often than offers without a salary. Still, most companies in CEE region prefer to keep the information about salaries secret, and candidates often find out only at the end of the job interview. The final agreed amount also depends to a large extent on the willingness of the candidate to negotiate.
A specialised survey involving HR professionals from a sample of 361 employees and conducted by Paylab in collaboration with the Profesia.sk job portal shows that optimised salaries combined with a good team and corporate culture are the most valuable aspects that influence employee satisfaction.
Have our managers the sense of humour? How do employees view present-day leaders?
Luckily, according to Paylab Data Research, the sense of humour is not what traits are contemporary managers lacking the most. Employees agree that modern leaders suffer from
an acute lack of fairness, sincerity, communicativeness and willingness.
These are traits and behaviours that employees rarely see in their bosses and
mention most often.
Work is not only about demands, expectations, and performance
Employer demands and pressure to perform are the largest contributors to stress among employees. Up to a quarter of employees reported suffering from extraordinary pressure in terms of the duties and responsibility inherent in the tasks they undertake. In terms of those in management, one third of managers reported this form of stress. Another major impediment to work involved overtime work, which was reported by up to 16 per cent of employees as a serious problem in the survey.
Fun at work is important, because we spend at least a third of our life working. A humour in the team is an extraordinaly way how to fight against stress and how to recharge energy. Lets have fun at work today. It is important not only for you, but also for your colleagues and overall employee satisfaction at work.
