Good faith gestures
Friday, September 25, 2009
When people want me to trust them to fix problems, especially when they are expecting me to do extra work or pay money, they should prove the competance by a good will gesture. For instance, Several of my coworkers had their schedules changes (if they did not like it they could quit) and then they were given the work of 2 more departements with no raise or bonus for doing the extra work.
To me a simple good faith gesture would be to give a raise for so many departments a person works in or give them the full training. Whe we ask a question it would be nice if they would actually try to get the answers instead of ignoring it. They then raise our goals and give us little to no assistance to improve on those metrics.
It makes you think someone is up to dirty tricks and really makes you not trust the people making the decisions.
