Am I Valued At Work? – Is It Time To Realise My Potential?
We live in strange times at present and in my opinion, it’s not going to be back to normal for a very long time. I am sure during these strange times of Covid infestation we have all questioned many aspects of our normal life compared to the new way of life, I know I certainly have.
A few things that have crossed my mind are:
- Can I cut my own hair and save £20 a month?
- If we have another wave of the virus, is there another way of ensuring I will be financially stable?
- Do I have any unnecessary direct debits that I can cancel?
- How much money have I saved staying away from bars and clubs?
- How much money have I saved on clothes and outfits to socialise in?
By the way, after popping to see my barber, I can definitely say the £20 a month is worth it! As you will notice all the above are finance related. Mainly because unfortunately, money is what makes the world go around and it’s more important than it’s ever been.
After speaking to a close friend of mine one recent weekend he added another question to the list, that question was one I am sure many employed people have asked since being furloughed and returning to work. For my American friends and anyone else not from the UK, furlough is what the UK government have put in place which basically means you are temporarily made redundant from work with 80% pay. The 80% pay is paid to your employer by the government and it is up to your employer whether they make up the extra 20%.
Anyway, back to the question my friend added to the list. He found himself in a situation where he had to ask himself am I valued at work?
All Is Fair in Love & Business
We are all put through the same cycle in life, go to school, get a job, pay bills and die. As morbid as it sounds it’s the truth. Or is it? Have you ever wondered why school don’t teach you how to manage a mortgage, how to invest your money, how to start a business or simply how to manage finances? Basically it’s because the system wants you to get a job pay your taxes like everyone else. Now I don’t want to sound like one of those conspiracy theorists that talks about the Illuminati and the government etc, I am merely stating facts. In my opinion a lot of people forget that when you are employed, you basically are a number that makes number 1 a very healthy bank balance (if the business is successful). The black and white of how business owners think is quite simply ‘how can I use someone to make me money in the most profitable way possible’.
Am I Valued At Work? – The Honest Truth
Unfortunately there are many people out there who are just money makers, they aren’t valued, they are a pawn in the game of chess that is business. However, there are some employers out there who understand the grind, they understand the commitment some put in and the sacrifices some make. This can be rewarded in extra holiday, bonuses and pay increases. But, you must never forget, you are still there to make them money. You are still there to ensure they live the life they dream off and if you don’t, you’re gone. My friend is a mechanic and has been a mechanic at the same garage for the last 12 years. He is incredibly loyal and in those 12 years he has never had a day off sick. He turns up every day, puts a shift in and goes home.
My friend was unfortunately furloughed during lock down. At the time he was in the middle of buying a new house and few other expensive situations. Eventually he was bought back to work on full pay. However, things had changed. His boss, someone who he had a good relationship with, was money obsessed and not in a good way. He would plead poverty every day to his staff and remind them every day they were lucky to be in work and he has just about got his head above water.
What he failed to inform them as that he was having 2 large extensions on his new £1M home. My friend was paying expert tradesman hundreds of pounds a day to finish his dream home. Yet his mechanics, who help bring this income to the table, to enable him to have this work done, were made to feel like they may be out of work and that they should be grateful to be in work. As always the truth came out and it left the mechanics disgruntled. His boss mentioned he was paying a carpenter £250 a day, my friend only just earns that a week. Now, don’t get me wrong, I am sure if we all had that kind of money we would be doing the same if not similar. However, it sometimes pays to remember and value those who help put you where you are as they could be going through difficulties themselves. Sometimes spending money makes money. Or even an arm around someone to tell them they are appreciated goes a long way.
