Employer-Employee relations

While I might still be a youngster when it comes to working in the corporate world or knowing how management and employees are supposed to interact, I still think common sense should apply. An employee is expected to perform certain tasks for pay. When asked to take on extra responsibilities the employee is within his or her rights to ask for more pay. If more pay is agreed upon, the employer is then ethically obligated to fulfill their end of the bargain. Not doing so does more than just upset the employee, it sows the seeds of mistrust and resentment.

Having an employer that follows through with what they promise typically has happier employees who would do more for the company than one where the employer constantly breaks promises.

Employees who work for a company who doesn’t value them, or treat them with respect and dignity also won’t recommend the company to others. If everyone knows that a certain business has shady practices and often abuses it’s privileges, soon that company won’t have any customers or referrals from employees.

It just makes sense to me if management makes promises to an employee, such as a raise. They should keep that promise, especially if that employee has taken on the extra responsibilities for which the raise was promised.

Lying to employees only breeds disgruntled employees. And we all know that’s not a healthy work environment.

As a note for anyone concerned, this has nothing to do with my current employer. Where I work people are treated with respect and decency. I wish every place could be this awesome.

  1. While it is a common gripe among overworked employees that they should get paid such and such more for doing extra work, I have never once in my life seen this actually happen. I’ve made this gripe in the past and even today I hear it murmured among my peers. The way the corporate world works is by initiating challenges to it’s employees and seeing how those employees sink or swim through them. It is always great to have a manager that does indeed take your position as a person seriously and take you into consideration, there is nothing in the corporate handbooks (that don’t exist) that say management should act ethically or fairly.

    You have to admit though, that the lessons you learned from the company you used to work for has allowed you to set a baseline in such a way that working in a good one feels completely fantastic. I got this same feeling when I moved down here. The company I work for down here is nothing like the one I worked for up there – even though it’s the same company.

    Hope all is well!
