In her latest study related to work performance, Listen, an independent market research agency specialized in marketing studies and studies related to human capital, reveals that 70% of Belgians feel performant at work.
We learn that the feeling of performance increases with age and that the region plays a major role in this perception. In fact, the survey indicates that 76% of Flemish people feel that they are performing well, whereas this is the case for only 61% of the Walloons and 59% of the people living in Brussels.
The feeling of performance comes above all from the degree of commitment and the perceived efficiency (64%). Commitment is expressed by the involvement of the worker and his mobilization for his work. Efficiency is a result of the worker’s performance and his ability to organize his work efficiently and to apply the processes. Other elements also influence work performance such as cooperation, agility, health and innovation. These are perceived differently depending on the age and seniority of the worker and the size of the company he is working in.
According to 72% of the respondents, work performance is primarily related to a personal balance and this increases with age. The older you are, the more personal well-being has a direct impact on your performance.
For about 1 in 2 respondents, the relationships with colleagues, the direct manager and the organization also play a key role in the perception of performance at work.
The survey shows that more than 1 in 2 workers feel globally good about their work. Older employees feel the best in their society. We also learn that overseeing a team has a positive influence on the well-being of a worker.
Well-being at work is influenced by commitment and the perception of individual performance. Unsurprisingly, the survey reveals that employees who consider themselves to be performant at work and who are the most committed feel the best at work.
The loyalty of workers increases with age and seniority. More than half of the workers think of working in the same company in the next 2 years, but the figures vary by age group. Among the 18-24 years old, 42% still think of working for the same employer while the percentage rises to 63% among the 45-54 years old.
