Work satisfaction and workflow

August 26, 2009

All jobs require some form of administration. Reports, spreadsheets and sales charts are just some of the papers required in most businesses.

Businesses need administration procedures to maintain order within a company. Forms need to be filled out, records must be kept, and documents must be filed.

Often, though, it is the paperwork that annoys employees and takes them away from doing their job. If employees are constantly bogged down with mundane tasks, they don’t have time to pursue the more interesting aspects of their jobs. This leads to frustration and their job satisfaction levels decrease. As their overall satisfaction levels decrease, they are less likely to give their company their best – and are more likely to become a “place holder” in the organisation.

If employees have automated processes in place, where their administration was easily captured, and they could see the whole picture of their contributions, they are more likely to be positive about their roles.

Web based workflow software can provide an online, real time snapshot of a company’s processes. If employees understand where they fit – and how important their little bit is – they will feel appreciated and know how much they contribute.
