This is a good list of what employees want. The challenge is figuring out the unique "want" in each of these categories for each employee.

I think one of the quickest ways for an employer to learn about their employees is through assessments on behavior, motivators and soft skills(strengths). They can also be used to benchmark a particular job to determine which attributes work well for that job.

Of course these should be complimented by the "old-fashioned" relationship building strategy of conversation! :) However, in the absence of conversation, the knowledge provided from assessments is in invaluable for team building and employee retention.

Listening is the key to this whole process. Well written article. Thank you for sharing. I especially like the quote from President Truman.


:)). Yes, this is true. As i employee, i want(of course) what's best for me. And that can mean a lot of things, because it is different from one individual to another, but i also believe that these "demands" should be accepted, only if we do our job best/better.
