In today's business world, we are subject to grow for the company we work with. As all of us understand that the world is always changing and growing. At times we do not realise that the world is changing or growing faster than we can adapt.
As most of the people I know are employee of company, we are always prepared and expected the company we work at to press a 'more' button every new financial year. The button pressed is always 'more' which means growth. As employee (sales department), we have to deliver up to company's expectation.
One very simple matter I am unable to clarify is that growth expected by a company is always to a company only. I am referring to sales revenue and profit of an organisation. An organisation or company wanted growth on sales revenue and profit.
The so called unattended matter is 'how about we grow together ?' Why are we not (company to employees) been said something like in the movie TITANIC which says 'you jump, i jump.' An organisation or company should have say something similar to employees like 'you grow, i grow.'
A boss or an head of an organisation do say something to employees to grow together. However, as i understand the growth a boss wanted is always bigger a few folds of an employee in terms of percentage. We could be receiving three to five percent increment of salary yearly but the growth we contributed, contributing and will contribute to organisation or our boss/bosses is definitely higher!
To be fair to boss or bosses, we have to understand that he or she is taking risks. The risks involved as i could think of at this moment are time and money. As for time, all human being of the world has nothing more than 86, 400 seconds (24 hours) a day. Which nobody will ever complain or doubt someone else has more. There are differences of every human being in terms of money.
Money invested are being expected to have good returns. That is why the risks involved are justifiable with the potential return. And with money, an organisation is able to purchase time from people.
The ultimate goal of investors of any organisation is very simple. They just want to see how much growth can be made from their investment. The best is, 'to continue to have significant growth with current investment.'
This mind set as mentioned above do affect this changing and growing world. This is because it will not make people (employees) feel good. People are not been rewarded accordingly. Not because they do not deserve it. Just because investors are happy with the return of current investment.
A better reward or additional investment for the people will be injected or implemented whenever things are not happened accordingly. Corrections will be made when growth is not happening. This is very pathetic for employees as they are not been rewarded according to contributions.
A betterment for the people will only happen when bad things happened, why are not the bosses not take this risk. Risk of losing competent people in an organisation. When they are good people in your organisation, investors should have a responsibility to grow with the people.
Implement things to make the people in an organisation to grow. Make sure the people are being rewarded, rewarded accordingly. Make the people work with bosses and not for bosses. Make people to be happy. When people are happy, they feel good. People will work and deliver the best when they feel at best.
Investors will have their investment growth whenever they are able to make people in their organisation as happy as them. People in your organisation will work and act like an investor. When people been rewarded accordingly they will feel that they are not been taken for granted. Nobody is a fool and nobody is willing not to be appreciated.
I would suggest to employers to act like how Manchester United football club (MUFC) to strengthen their team. MUFC never fail to reward accordingly. Changes been made constantly and this can be obvious with the team members played in the final of European Champion of 2008 and 1999. Ryan Giggs is the only player played in both finals.
It is obvious Ryan Giggs is been rewarded according to his contributions and he is happy. A competent player or people is around to grow together with the club. A best feeling people will deliver its best.
