Do you ever wonder what happened to the days when an employer actually cared about its employees? The days when an employer knew his/her employees by
name. Have you noticed that anymore you are just a number. Just one of the crowd of nameless souls meandering around trying to make a living.
What about the days when your employer was sympathetic when you lost a loved one, and I mean they meant it when they said they were sorry, take as
long as you need. Now if you loose an immediate( this doesn't include aunts, uncles, cousins...) member of the family you get 3 days off paid, after
that you better suck it up and get back to work or it is unexcused and can lead to you getting fired. I wonder who came up with that number...Hmmm..3
days if plenty of time to grieve...
What happened to the days when you got up and were sick and called your boss and they told you to get well, get some rest..we will be thinking about
you. Now, you call in and you better have a doctors excuse, and even then you are getting called and asked when you are coming back because your
absence is making it hard on everyone else...
What has happened to human compassion?
What happened to the days when you went to work and busted your rear end and were rewarded for it. You moved up in the company because you earned that
right, not because you were kin to the boss or because you were the office snitch and/or "suck-up".
We were given a speech at work the other day that we were "catering to the wrong clients". I got in trouble for speaking up and saying "but isn't
a client a client, didn't they all sign up under the same guidelines". It upset me and I expressed that, only to get called into the office for a
closed door reprimand. How is it good customer service to treat some clients better than others? Why is all that I wanted to know, and I was
basically told to do my job as I was told or look for other employment. Like it or lump it.... Since when is it wrong to give a rats ass about your
fellow man and want and expect fairness for all.
It paints a rather cold picture doesn't it...it makes me not even want to get up and go in in the morning. I care about people, all people, and yet
it seems that this is not considered a positive thing in the work force these days.( I have been sent to a "learning to control your emotions"
seminar for caring. What kind of mentality is that and what does it say about our society??
