Hi Jane,

Loy­alty or job po­si­tion: What de­cides my salary?

The HR Digest - - Q & a -

Hi Jane! I have de­cided to ap­proach you with my query as I have no­body else to dis­cuss this with bec au sei be­lieve that my is­sue might

of­fend the HR of my com­pany. I will give you a brief idea that it con­cerns my salary struc­ture and I have of­ten heard that bring­ing up this is­sue with your em­ployer or your man­ager is con­sid­ered rude and I don’t want to do any­thing that will jeop­ar­dize my im­pres­sion in the work­place.

I have ded­i­cated more than seven years of my life to the com­pany I am cur­rently work­ing for and am al­ways praised for my ideal em­ployee be­hav­ior and un­wa­ver­ing ef­forts. Even though such kind words flat­terme, I feel that I am not ap­pre­ci­ated in terms of ap­praisal for my ef­forts. Af­ter spend­ing such a long por­tion of my ca­reer over here, I have reached a re­spectable po­si­tion but not one I can boast about. If my com­pany would hire some­one new for my po­si­tion, they would need to pay at least 30 per­cent more than my cur­rent salary. The rea­son be­hind my com­par­a­tively low pay is that I have been given reg­u­lar in­cre­ments over the years but never a sig­nif­i­cant pay hike. due to this, if eel th a ti am not val­ued enough at the work­place. It seems that my loy­alty for the or­ga­ni­za­tion is taken for granted. This has de­mo­ti­vated me to a great ex­tent be­cause of which I dread to go to work. Af­ter spend­ing so much time at one place, I don’t feel like ven­tur­ing for a new job nor am I happy over here. I don’t know what to do.
