Read Millionaire Fastlane
I've Read UNSCRIPTED
- Oct 31, 2011
I had an employee tell me once she loved her job so much, she would do it for free. She was just "blessed" to get paid for doing what she loved.Thousands, if not millions, of dollars are spent every year by businesses to "culture shape" to "improve employee engagement and productivity". Yet, for me, it never seems to have any impact. More likely than not, I hear people laugh at crap like "the mood elevator" and "be here now".
I recently read something that resonated with me: the purpose of paid employment is to get paid. Everything else is secondary to that. I think more people need to realize that, and seek meaning and inclusion elsewhere.
Three months later, with the company struggling for profitability, I asked her to adjust her wage from 150% of the going market hourly rate, to 125% of the going market hourly rate.
She quit two weeks later. Took a job elsewhere for less money.
