How Job Satisfaction Affects Employee Performance
Have you wondered how job satisfaction affects employee performance?
As corporate impact expert, I have found that there’s a direct correlation between job satisfaction and employee engagement.
Let me give you an example: In one company, we improved their employee satisfaction in only six months, which sometimes is unheard of.
>>> We went from 69% to 98%.
>>> We saved $250,000 a year.
And what could those savings mean for you in dollars?
And what could the engagement mean to your organization? In a recent study, only 20.8% are engaged. We were at 90%+ after ½ a year.
And we did it with Fun Friday.
Here are some benefits we enjoyed:
- Teamwork improved
- Increased morale
- Showing an interest in one another
- Communication was better, in both talking and listening
- Collaboration in and outside of the group lifted
- Improved processes
The team began looking for things to do and helping one another. And they took an interest in what other departments did that they impacted. They were happy and satisfied at work.
Can you imagine? Your employees coming to work because they want to. Because they’re having fun? We improved personal, group, and organizational performance.

How HR can help with employee engagement results?
HR can implement a Fun Friday program. With only 15 minutes a week, groups and organizations can increase their engagement.
When I took over a team, it surprised me at the:
- high turnover rate was for their employees
- the low productivity
- a low employee engagement
We implemented Fun Friday where every Friday we took 15 minutes and we performed team-building exercises. No one was forced to join, but even the people that didn’t join increased benefits. Every 15 minutes on a Friday, we played games and just did something fun to get to know one another.
We became so good at it we could get our green belt certification through Six Sigma and then we became the team that everybody wanted to model after, even in other sites.
