Liz Ryan, contributor to Forbes share who you can know your company values you or not. We all want to be appreciated. Knowing when you are valued or not can make a great difference in your career and as Liz says in this article, you need to flex your job muscle. I highly recommend you read this article but in case you want to bookmark it for later, here are two ways to know if your company values you and one way to tell if they don’t.
Two ways to tell If your company values you:
- Your company values you if they tell you how important you are to their success — and show their appreciation through pay increases, flexibility in your work schedule or other concrete ways
- Your company values you if they give you more important assignment to fix
Your Company does not value you if:
- Your company doesn’t value you if they tell you they do but when you ask for something — a stapler or a half-day off work — it’s viewed as a major inconvenience
Pro tip: If you just starting your career, I recommend you do not spend more than 2years on a level or job role.
The best time to plant a tree was in the last 10 years; the next best time is now.
