As professionals, we too have bills we have to pay on the first and the fifteenth of every month.
Is there a happy medium between job satisfaction and pay?
Do we sacrifice one for the other?
“Job satisfaction is impacted by an employee’s views about the fairness of the company wage scale as well as the current compensation she may be receiving. Companies need to have a mechanism in place to evaluate employee performance and provide salary increases to top performers. Opportunities to earn special incentives, such as bonuses, extra paid time off or vacations, also bring excitement and higher job satisfaction to the workplace.” (Hill, B. (n.d.).
