What is the key to increasing job satisfaction for salespeople? Is it simply a matter of spending more time on sales-related activities?

21% Higher Job Satisfaction for Salespeople Spending More Than 4 Hours a Day on Sales Activities

Salespeople are often known for their long hours and high-pressure work environment. But does spending more time on sales-related activities lead to higher job satisfaction? According to a study by Sales Insights Lab, the answer is yes.

Salespeople who spent four or more hours a day on sales-related activities reported a higher job satisfaction level of 3.8 out of 5. In contrast, those who spent three hours or less had an average job satisfaction level of 3.45.

It’s not just about the number of hours worked, though. The study found that the type of sales-related activity also affects job satisfaction. Salespeople who spent more time engaging with prospects and customers reported higher job satisfaction levels than those who spent more time on administrative tasks.

So what can sales teams do to boost job satisfaction? One solution is to automate time-consuming administrative tasks, allowing salespeople to focus on building relationships with prospects and customers. Another solution is to invest in training and development programs that help salespeople build their skills and confidence.
