work place satisfaction

Back in the fall, at work, we filled out a questionnaire concerning work satisfaction for a third party organization called 'Great Places to Work'; our company did well, but there were some things that came out of the survey that is being acted upon.

For example, employees who have been here six years or longer rated their general satisfaction to be lower than the average shown by the other 'age breakdown' groups. Given this, a task group has been formed to group these people together to find out what irks them and to see what can be done about it.

We're a fairly small, but growing, software company, and given this, there aren't a lot of women in our company. The women that there are, however, also rated their general satisfaction to be measurably lower than what the males rated. Given this, the women have been meeting, they just went to a meeting now, to see what can be done by the company to make things better for them.

I'm curious to know what these groups are working out to see if any of what the company ends up doing for them affects all of the rest of us. I don't know if I'll end up hearing about it.

We had a meeting this morning about how our payroll reporting is changing. And how as we get busier we will have to get more organization.
