Employees want to have the ‘Best Job in the World’? As a responsible HR Manager there’ no reason why we can’t make the jobs of our workforce the ‘Best in the World’. Here’s how the Human Resource department can add value and definitely can do about making people love what they do.
Making the Job Right:
The first step that must be taken by an HR Manager is to find a job that matches the employees skills, interests and values. The second is taking control of the job description, to whatever extent possible and appropriate. As organizations change, jobs can evolve. As time in the job wears on, employees who are in tune with the organization’s needs, can volunteer for tasks that align with their interests and skills, and move out of roles that are less enjoyable. In order to have the best job, employees need to excel at their job. Proactively taking initiatives and challenges, continuously learning, thinking out-of-the-box and performing with focus and commitment makes the job truly incredible.
Creating the Dream Job:
HR Managers have a huge role to play in helping individuals attain their ‘dream jobs’. An HR Manager plays a very important role in creating the best job for an employee, mainly by providing an atmosphere for learning, creating a work place that the employee likes to work in and a work environment that rewards and recognizes employee performance. It starts with a strong ‘onboarding’ process, where the HR Manager effectively shares the organisation’s vision and mission and explains its goals clearly. This ensures that a new employee feels welcome, is charged up and hits the ground running with clear direction.
Role of HR in creating the ‘Best Job’:
HR Manager create an environment which gives the employees an opportunity to give their 100 percent.
Think of ways which makes the job more exciting.
The HR Manager must recognize the employee’s true passions – concepts like knowledge or technology, job functions or skills.
HR must make a record of tasks where an employee did something best at the workplace.
HR Manager must make a note of the projects where the employee really enjoyed.
List down all the accomplishments of the employee and create a mentoring program where employees can talk to people whose advise they value, people who have worked with them, and who have watched them in action.
Finally, if an employee is already doing something he/she loves, HR Manager makes it rewarding by aligning them to the goals of the organization, contributing more than what is expected, and giving them every opportunity to learn.
