Conflicts amongst employees cause many adverse effects, but to be dissatisfied with their employers will bring about even more severe consequences!

Now, here’s a list of what could employees possibly be unhappy about with the management:

Lack of communication. A recent poll by Harris and Interact, 91% respondents say that communication issues can hurt their relationship with their bosses. In fact, bad communication always hurt any relationship. Both employers and employees play a part in the contribution to the lack of communication issue.

Some employees tend to choose to keep their silence in order to preserve the reputation, avoid the punishment, etc. On the other hand, some employers fail to provide adequate face time to employees. Face time is necessary as it is during such meetings they can build deeper bonds. Such meetings are held to listen, give feedback and iron out issues.

Favouritism. Employers displaying favouritism is a destructive force to employees’ morale; it’s just like swallowing a bitter pill. Employees mostly see favouritism as an unfair treatment which hurt their feelings, especially when they have put in great efforts to their work. Favouritism often creates unhealthy competition amongst employees.

Little to no appreciation. Although delivering appreciation to employees can be not costly, some employers still do not practice any appreciative efforts to employees’ accomplishments. In the end, the workplace will only be filled with demoralised or disgruntled employees!

Unconcern to employees’ personal life. By showing no concern at all to employees’ personal life can lead them to feel less valued in the company. It is true that employers don’t need to engage the employees on a personal level but to a certain extent, it is important for employers to be involved in important occasions. Simply by congratulating the employees, sending condolences notes and giving a little leeway of flexibility when there are important family events could bring about more positive impacts to the employees.

Overworking employees. It is quite common for today’s workforce to work overtime to meet deadlines or to accomplish urgent tasks. However, overworking can diminish the well-being of the employee. Many health issues like insomnia, fatigue, depression and weight gain are some dangerous consequences employees could have when they overworked.

To be able to recognise signs that indicate employees’ unhappiness with the management will help HRs to be vigilant and take immediate actions before it can go all downhill. Are there any signs of the above already happening in your company? If yes, it’s time for some changes to be implemented!
