The ‘grass is always greener’ complex can be a tricky one when it comes to our jobs. So how do we really know when the grass really, truly is greener elsewhere, or when we’re on to a pretty great thing. Check out our the biggest key indicators that show that your company is truly great or whether you could, well, quite frankly, do better.
Weighing up the pros and cons of any company we choose to invest ourselves in can be a confusing process, but the above tips should go some way in helping you decide whether you are on to a good thing or whether you can afford to look around and see what else is out there.
Commitment to Employee
The best place to start is by evaluating how invested your company is in you and your career development? Does your manager spend time talking through your work related problems and celebrating your successes with you? Does your company regularly organise training programmes and provide ways to be continuously developing your skills and qualifications? These are incredibly important points to consider when looking at the environment of your company and whether it is one that has a fruitful future of promotion and development.
Your Work Environment
Take time to look into and consider your work environment. Does your company take pride in providing a healthy and happy work environment for its employees? Do you feel as a workforce that you are encouraged to work together as a harmonious and positive team? Does your company ever organise any team-building activities or days out of the office to help ensure your team is a sociable and energetic work unit?
Proving a really fantastic work environment is something that every company should focus on.
Providing a happy and connected team dynamic is super important to make teams and staff feel motivated and part of a supportive, energetic and forward thinking company.
Another good indicator of a really healthy, strong and powerful company is the relationship between the company and its clients. Does your company keep the client at the heart of everything that it does? Does it pride itself on efficiently looking after its clients and making sure they feel looked after and valued?
Look at the client communication strategies and systems set up in your company in order to better understand just how integral and important client satisfaction is in your company. Do you offer a business messaging platform for efficient and speedy client communication or do you have dedicated teams structured purely to take care of clients and project deliverables. Think about all of these things to consider how effective and efficient your company is when it comes to growing and nurturing their business relationships.
Weighing up the pros and cons of any company we choose to invest ourselves in can be a confusing process, but the above tips should go some way in helping you decide whether you are on to a good thing or whether you can afford to look around and see what else is out there. It’s important to not make any knee-jerk, or emotional decisions when it comes to your career. So take your time to consider the above points, your individual goals and aspirations and from there consider your next steps.
