How Much Do Your Employees Pay You?

May 8, 2019

By Mel Kleiman, CSP

Yes, you read that right

The fact is, if your employees don’t “pay” enough for the right to work for your organization, you and they may not have your jobs much longer.

Now, I understand that most of us don’t think we need to “pay” for the right to be employed. It’s the other way around, right? They pay us to show up and do our jobs.

My point is that, while doing their jobs, employees have to produce more in value than they cost; otherwise, the company is on its way to going to go out of business.

So, instead of focusing on the money they earn, encourage your people to look at how much they make for your organization. The more valuable they become to you and the organization, the more money will be made by everyone.

“There is no future in any job;

the future is in the person who does the job.
