Isn’t it rare to find a team that respects their time off as much as they respect the days at work? Over time, these are the companies that people choose to work with. It is a decision driven not by money or motive, but by that elusive parameter that so many companies try hard, and fail, to get right- satisfaction.
Sometimes, it isn’t just up to the individual to find joy in what they do. Sometimes, we need to go the extra mile and make coming to work worth their while. Gone are the days when the paycheck was enough incentive to go to work. Millennials today demand more. Here’s how to meet those expectations without burning an extra-large hole in your company cash flows.
Does the next pay raise always seem to be on the distant horizon? Here’s the thing about getting paid- if the work-for-money agreement came along too easily, there’s a good chance that you might feel let down at some point. In the course of watercooler talk, you may hear about someone else in the same position getting paid a lot more. Or perhaps, you work years at a company with no sight of a raise on the horizon, but you don’t want to have ‘the talk’ because you love the place.
There’s a great saying that goes like this- do what you love, and you’ll never have to work another day in your life. However, many of us may have a bone to pick with that advice. Sometimes, doing what we love is not an option in the circumstances we are in. Or maybe, doing what we love just doesn’t pay the bills.
