5 needs in every workplace

All five of the following needs have to be met on a personal level in order to be an effective part of a working organization. Leaders that can meet these needs will see employee engagement soar.

  1. I matter. The need to feel that the organization has a worthwhile purpose. The need to understand how tasks contribute to the purpose.
  2. I belong. The need to feel a part of the tribe. The workplace values need to ring true and be shared among the foundation of the workplace culture.
  3. I’m enabled. The need for easy access to the tools, information, and processes that help get tasks accomplished. Clarify how to find help in making decisions and getting the work done.
  4. I contribute.  The need to have accomplishments recognized. It is important for teammates to appreciate and value the contributions of others.
  5. I’m respected. The need to feel appreciated and important. An organization must provide an environment of trust where information can be confidently and appropriately shared.

It’s all about communication: reinforcing values, articulating plans, and celebrating successes.
