||The retention of talents has been one of the crucial topics for enterprises.|
No matter how renowned the enterprise is, its employees might choose to resign. The causes or reasons of resignation could be many, either unsatisfied with current workplace or other factors, such as leadership of supervisors, job satisfaction, the recognition of incentives or motivation and so forth. Through career transition survey and the research of related thesis, we discovered that employees’ job satisfaction was profoundly involved with leadership. In the meantime, employees’ recognition toward motivators will influence their job satisfaction as well.
From the result of questionnaire survey and analysis, we understand what motivators can motivate employees to the most and what type of leadership can make employees feel more satisfied their jobs.
