Job Satisfaction Equals Compensation Per New SHRM Study

moneyThe Society for Human Resource Management conducted its annual survey on job satisfaction and the results may not necessarily surprise you: 96 percent of employees indicated compensation was “important” or “very important.”

This makes it the numero uno factor in overall job satisfaction. In fact, money trumped job security and opportunities to use skills/abilities. During the recession it sounds like job security and opportunities beat out pay but now that the job market’s on the uptick, money is top of mind.

Per a piece on Fortune, director of SHRM’s research center Evren Esen noted, “Incomes have grown slowly during the recession, and that undoubtedly is having an impact on workers’ priorities.” Read more

Social Network For Human Resource

The Society for Human Resource Management is launching a new social networking platform&#151as if LinkedIn weren’t enough for you guys&#151and Laurie Ruettimann over at Punk Rock HR spoke with SHRM‘s Chief E-Media and Publishing Officer Gary Rubin. These were some of her suggestions about the soon to be launched site:

  • You need to give people a reason to visit SHRM on a daily basis. Migrating content and ongoing conversations from the existing website into a new, fancy user interface isn’t going to help create a destination.
  • SHRM’s social network needs a face, and Lon O’Neil isn’t it. You can’t even get to his biography unless you are a member, which is problem #1. So much of the site is locked behind a wall, and SHRM would benefit from creating a community manager position that operates like a true community manager &#151 someone who is big enough to have a personality that drives traffic to the site but small enough to be a guide. I cited Jason Davis as a good example of a leader, a moderator, and a mediator when his community needs it.
  • I think the most important part of building a community is creating a space for important conversation and interactions that you can’t get anywhere else. Don’t try to be Facebook because even Facebook sucks at being Facebook. Focus on the purpose of the community &#151 and create a user interface that is flexible enough to adapt and grow as the community matures.
  • So is she right? Tell us what you think SHRM‘s new network should have and we’ll try to get a sit down with Gary Rubin ourselves to get your voices heard!
