Money- A Factor of Demotivator

How true…money is often the main ingredient in creating havoc and unrest in an otherwise peaceful working environment.

That’s why, the rule of thumb is “never reveal your salary“, not even to your closest colleague. I believe it is one of the main cause of staff turnovers.

People who really and truly love their jobs are in every single industry. And people who do great work because they love their jobs are paid at every salary level. What they have in common is a boss that gives them respect and freedom and responsibility. A boss that listens when they have something to say. Which, not coincidentally, is exactly the way the best companies treat their customers, too.

Well, unless of course, you TRULY MADLY DEEPLY love your job!

  2. Don’t sign up with your colleague, or warn her that she might need to be a full time credit card agent if she sees your salary figures!

    Well, I guess there are exceptions, that’s why it’s called the “Rule of Thumb” and not “Rule of All Fingers”.

  3. I agree with this actually. Revealing your salary will just end up in dissapointment for either party and sometimes grow to something worse. Best is, if you are happy with what you earn, just shut the trap and work. If unhappy, bring it up with management. Simple.
