Take a good look at this list. It says employees stay when they are well paid, mentored, challenged, promoted and involved. Does your job provide any of that for you?
Tom Ziglar, CEO of Ziglar Inc. is in the business of making people successful. He says you can have it all if you change the way you approach your job.
"If you walk into work saying nobody here has control of my attitude but me, I'm going to make this positive for everybody on my team and every customer who walks through that door, you have a huge advantage," he said.
Ziglar referenced a 2015 Gallup poll indicating that up to 71 percent of the work force is disengaged.
"I call those people zombies," he said. "They get there when it's about to start. They leave right when it's over and when they go to the meeting, their whole thing is 'don't ask me anything.'"
So when you start to engage and care, you're automatically ahead and can start to truly excel.
"Are you going to do what management wants you to do or are you going to ask around and find out how I can do 10 percent, 20 percent, 30 percent more than that. What is the No. 1 person in the country in my role doing from an effort perspective?" he asked.
But wait... isn't this supposed to be a story about complaints and employers not handing out those sought after qualities? Ziglar said changing your attitude will bring the recognition you're looking for.
"When I provide outstanding customer service, not matter what the issues are, that's the spirit. Then I start to get recognized," he said.
And if you don't, then you're bound to get a tap on your shoulder about a better opportunity somewhere else, he added.
