What is the current state of employee locality? Interesting work.  No one wants to do the same boring job over and over, day after day. Although any job will require some  repetitive tasks, all jobs should include at least some parts that are of high interest to employees.  Information.  Information is power and employees want to have the information they need to know to do their jobs better and  more effectively. And, more than ever, employees want to know how they are doing in their jobs and how the company is  performing overall. It is vitally important to open the channels of communication in an organization to allow employees to be  informed, ask questions, and share information and to inspire them to share the vision of the company.  Involvement.  Managers today are faced with an incredible number of opportunities and problems and, as the speed of  business continues to increase, the amount of time that they have to make decisions continues to decrease. Involving  employees in decision-making, especially when the decisions affect them directly, is both respectful and practical. Not only  do those closest to the problem typically have the best insight as to what to do, involving them in decision-making will  increase their commitment and improve the success of implementing new ideas or change. Similarly, management needs to  follow through on promises and live the values they preach.  Independence.  Few employees want their every action to be closely monitored. Most employees appreciate having the  flexibility to do their jobs as they see fit. Giving employees latitude increases the chance that they will perform as desired, as  well as bringing additional initiative, ideas, and energy to their jobs. Employees also need to be encouraged to achieve their  best potential.  Increased visibility.  Everyone appreciates getting credit when it is due. The occasions to share the successes of  employees with others are almost limitless. Giving employees new opportunities to perform, learn, and grow as a form of  recognition and thanks is highly motivating for most people.  Another important strategy for improving loyalty is to implement a systematic process of performance reviews, since effective  reviews can simultaneously increase employee morale and productivity. To achieve their primary objectives, such as
