How can you increase job satisfaction and performance?

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a lasting impact on our working lives.

While organisations and teams have had to rapidly adapt to changing circumstances, studies show that some of these changes have increased employee satisfaction in engagement, retention and productivity.

We have glimpsed the benefits of doing things differently and are now keen to make some permanent changes. SMART Work Design refers to five key themes we should consider when developing work: Stimulating, Mastery, Agency, Relational, and Tolerable Demands. Designed to create better understanding of work design, the SMART framework exists to benefit your employees and see your organisation flourish.

What can you do to help your organisation thrive in the future? Learn how to create and redesign jobs that increase satisfaction, reduce employee stress, and lead to a flourishing organisation.
