Being the owner of a small business, you have a responsibility not only to your company’s success but to the employees you hire. Some of you are great at this and some of you, well, stink. I received this email this week.
I took a newjob with the understanding that I would be an in-house subject matter expert and travel infrequently. There was work in the local area, but I was not given any of it. I have been 100 percenttravel since January 13, 2014, and was 50percenttravel for five months before that. Travel means go to the client site (out of state with 4 to 5 hours travel each way from my airport to client site) on either Sunday night or Monday morning, with 40 hours of client on site time. No comp time and PTO required for any time off (even an hour). I was just told this was going to be my role for the organization. High turnover at my level and one level less experience. Small privately owned business with nearly 75% turnover per year. I love what I do, but hate the way I am treated.
