Leadership and Culture Drive Employee Satisfaction

Confirming the often reported fact that salary and benefits are not the chief drivers of employee satisfaction, a recent study by Workplace Dynamics LLC found that the prime factors, instead, were leadership and culture.

The Top 100 Places to Work survey collected data from nearly 143,000 employees at companies in the Dallas-Fort Worth area and 14 other sites. Asked to evaluate and rank their organizations on 18 points across six key areas, employees put pay and benefits at the very bottom. 

The co-founder and CEO of Workplace Dynamics noted that leaders in the Dallas area are different from top managers in the rest of the country. Doug Claffey said "senior managers in the Dallas area really understand what is happening in the organization (and so) people in Dallas feel more connected to their senior management."
