Find out if your salary is above or below average
Do you bounce out of bed in the morning with a spring in your step as you travel to work? What motivates you to go to work each day? Is it just a means to an end, i.e. money?
Interestingly money is cited as NOT a key motivator for most people. Things such as making a difference, developing your skills, progressing your career, recognition, interesting work, your colleagues, helping others and flexible working are all quoted as being important factors in getting people out of bed each morning.
So, what about money?
Money is important – but more as a hygiene factor than a motivator. Without it people will be up in arms but it is not the reason why people bounce out of bed. People will want to know they are on a fair deal. If they do not feel this, then it will be a huge demotivator. But so long as people believe they are on a fair deal then there are usually more effective motivators.
“But I was on cloud 9 when I got a big pay rise”.
Yes but was that because of the money or was it because of the recognition that you were clearly doing a good job? Our salary tool provides useful insights into typical disciplines within engineering and construction. There are many factors to take into consideration, but knowing how you fair against the average may not act as an effective motivator for you, but it may tell you whether you are right to feel demotivated.
