This is actually already on the minds of a lot of HR people at top companies. IMO, it is more about employee satisfaction at the company, with salary being part of the mix. Gallup did this huge survey using 12 questions to measure employee engagement. They said that if an employee answered with 5s on a scale of 1 to 5 (5 being totally agree) to all of these questions, then that was one of the best indicators to company performance. Now, they're peddling this product to a lot of companies, and in my opinion (which counts for nothing), it works.

Read the book First, Break all the Rules, which is written by, surprise! The same guy who developed and is selling the survey.


  • Do you know what is expected of you at work?
  • Do you have the materials and equipment to do your work
    right?
  • At work, do you have the opportunity to do what you do best
    every day?
  • In the last seven days, have you received recognition or praise
    for doing good work?
  • Does your supervisor, or someone at work, seem to care about
    you as a person?
  • Is there someone at work who encourages your development?
  • At work, do your opinions seem to count?
  • Does the mission/purpose of your company make you feel your
    job is important?
  • Are your associates (fellow employees) committed to doing
    quality work?
  • Do you have a best friend at work?
  • In the last six months, has someone at work talked to you
    about your progress?
  • In the last year, have you had opportunities to learn and grow?

    I'm bored.

Good for you bilbobillikins! A couple of books that helped me make the transition were - High Output Management and First, Break All the Rules. Apart from this there is a great series of podcasts where Mike and Mark talk about various challenges and have a great perspective on how to deal with typical situation that managers would face. You can find them at Manager Tools website.
