Workplace satisfaction is at a 20-year low: Stop driving employees away!

Don’t pile on mindless tasks – outsource to Maple Street to increase job satisfaction

The Credit Union Times recently reported on a study from MetLife that found job satisfaction has hit a 20-year low. No one is more dissatisfied than younger workers. These young people thrive and will stay longer when companies support their social and mental well-being and give them interesting, meaningful work to do.

However, Covid and the Great Resignation have thrown credit unions and community banks a curve ball. When employees leave, it’s harder to be sensitive to the needs of those who remain because the work still has to be done.  You end up piling on grunt work when your employees want the opposite. This is particularly true in the world of vendor management. There’s nothing like the annual dread of tracking down vendors, reviewing contracts, risk assessments, due diligence gathering and exam-prep to add more negative feelings that may already be building up. In fact, it increases job dissatisfaction in a hurry.

It’s a tough decision when you have to choose between employee contentment, customer satisfaction and the bottom line. A lot of caring leaders may choose to run out and get a costly software package to help. But guess who has to learn the software?  Guess who has to fit the time into their bursting schedule to use the software correctly and consistently? Those same dissatisfied employees, who may find the software just as meaningless. Or worse yet, they may complete the training and quit, leaving you in the lurch.
