CNN Money Magazine has a quick poll on their site. Each day they ask their viewers another question and then display the results. The other day they asked the question “what do you think is the most important quality in a job?” ( I have posted the results below.) It wasn’t surprising to me that the number one answer was satisfying work. (43%).
The question now is, what makes satisfying work? What are the attributes of satisfying work? For some it may be the following:
Self fulfillment, feeling of expertise and competency, recognition and respect from the people you work with, the ability to be self-directed, enjoying the challenge of being creative in your work processes, being empowered, having the training, tools and resources to do your job well.
I am sure there are many more and this is just a short list, but one well worth thinking about.
