Hey, we’re Salary.com – you knew this one was coming!
While employees appreciate handwritten notes and cake, at the end of the day it’s more money they want. In a recent Salary.com survey of more than 2,400 people from December 2011, more than one-third – 67 percent – said they want to leave their current position because they’re not paid enough. Additionally, 29 percent said not receiving an end-of-year bonus also played into that dissatisfaction.
So what better time to make up for that undersized paycheck and lack of a raise than giving one to deserving employees on Employee Appreciation Day?
