No raise in 2010.
No promotion in 2010.
Damn this economy already.
Maybe I'm just feeling too secure that the MERGER will not kick me to the curb. Since fear is no longer a motivating factor....I'm looking for the more traditional options...you know...like money. In today's economy, when so many are so worse off, are you motivated simply by being employed? Is it selfish to want compensation for working harder than you ever have before when your peers are just trying to get health insurance again?
I don't want to sound like I'm de-motivated, but it does come down to some of those age-old debates. If you put in all the time and effort and the other person in the company who is 9-4ing it, doing the minimal and still goes home with the same raise as you, what is the impetus to do what you are doing?
I guess I'll have to find the motivating factor soon, because tomorrow I have to deliver the same message to three of my senior staff. All with positive reviews....all working hard....all getting no raise, no promotion.
