There is a train of thought that in this life you’ve got to ‘give’ to ‘get’…
Many employees feel that they turn up, do their best, often going the ‘extra mile’ and still get treated poorly at work.
Many employers feel that they pay employees for this work. Sometimes, handsomely, sometimes not so much and their perspective is, why should employees get anything more?
In the discipline of HR there is a theory that improves worker motivation and supposedly in turn employee productivity called ‘employee engagement’. In short, it means, if employers go the extra mile to give employees a great experience of work -which can mean anything from better pay and benefits to more exciting jobs and wider trust and independence – the organisation will benefit longer term.
The benefits to the employer include; reduced labour turnover, better customer satisfaction from more motivated employees.
So is it possible to turn it on its head? As an employee to give more to in turn get more where ‘more’ might be; career development, job satisfaction, promotion, more money, flexible working?
We’d be interested to hear your views, do people really believe going the extra mile at work makes a difference – vote and leave your thoughts here, it will take less than a minute!
