If you are someone who hates to wake up every morning to go to work, you are not alone. A vast majority of employees do not feel motivated to go to work, and it's not because they don't want to. It happens because their organisation is not giving them enough reasons to love what they do. Unless it's a wrong career choice, you ought to feel motivated to go to work.
While reading this, you might wonder whether you are working with the right organisation or not. Does your organisation really care about you? Here are 5 signs to figure it out.
Job fulfilment is the basic necessity for an employee to climb the success ladder. An organisation plays an important role in ensuring that its employees derive fulfilment from their work and stay motivated all the time. If your organisation provides the right work opportunities and helps you get better at what you do, it's a sign that you are working with the right organisation. On the contrary, if your organisation doesn't spend the time to recognize your talent and assign the work accordingly, you will be left gasping for job fulfilment.
Your hard-work is appreciated
If your organisation appreciates your hard-work as much as it criticizes your mistakes, consider yourself luckier than the majority out there. If you are ready to push past the limits to meet organisational goals, you deserve a pat on your back. If you always get appreciation where it is due, and constructive feedback whenever you falter, know that you are working with an organisation you will never want to leave.
Your concerns are heard
Every employee has reasonable concerns related to work-hours, dress code, leave policy and other internal operations. A considerate organisation will listen to your concerns and will try to resolve them or at least find a middle way to sort things out. If you can recall any of those moments when you were called in to discuss an issue and came out satisfied, you should be proud of your decision to work with the company.
A good organisation treats its employees like humans and not some lifeless robots. That being said, it understands the importance of work-life balance. If you are always saddled with an overwhelming amount of work and still not getting appreciated, or your paycheck doesn't justify your performance, you'd better start looking for opportunities outside your organisation. In case your organisation faces resource crunch and asks you to push the limits, it is fairly reasonable on your part to expect compensatory leaves or monetary benefits.
Your growth is their priority
When your organisation keeps your personal growth on their priority list, it means they are not just focused on profits. They want to give you a golden opportunity to become an asset to the company and excel at career front. Not only will you get to learn new things that will benefit you as an individual but you will also get a sense of pride that you are something meaningful and valuable for your employer.
Above mentioned are some of the telltale signs of an organisation that deserves your hard-work, dedication and talent. Let us know in the comment section how you feel about your work life, and how many of these signs are exhibited by your organisation.
