Is there a culture in your firm that encourages employees to take time off and receive additional benefits? Have you ever availed PTO after putting in long hours at your job? Then you already know how awesome it is to be able to take advantage of these benefits. If your firm offers these perks in addition to promotions, you are the luckiest person on this planet.
Many firms either promote their employees or just provide them with these benefits. Only a few of them are kind enough to increase their PTO and benefits in combination with a promotion in accordance with corporate policy.
In a similar vein, we came across a Reddit post from u/ChrisHansenF#### who was offered the opportunity to take on the role above his current one in exchange for a raise in pay but without the title or the salary, he enthusiastically accepted. But why would someone accept this offer? Want to know the reason why this guy accepted this offer? Keep scrolling down to read the whole post:
The OP had to work without any perks or benefits for to get promoted!
In this company, for every 30 hours, the employee gets 1 hour of PTO.
The bosses were impressed with the performance of OP and if at point he felt his position was stagnant, the management justifies the position for him.
The guy was eager to move up and asked the management to consider him for mid-level position.
The guy couldn’t get a promotion because he didn’t have an MBA.
He knows well what to do next!
He doesn’t require any benefits Because he owned them all.
So he took promotion and kept original title to have original PTO structure.
After an year in that position, the OP asked to utilize his PTO.
The guy got a month off and hunted for other opportunities and luckily got offers.
The OP was smart enough to avail a whole month PTO because of his smart decisions. Now you know why he accepted the offer?
If he hadn’t been promoted from his current position, he would have been entitled to a better PTO package. In order for the company’s PTO plan to work, employees in his position had to leave after a short time. His supervisor had no idea how much paid time off he had accrued until he asked him to cash it in before he left.
The companies should thus modify their rules carefully and implement a proper promotion plan or structure to avoid future mishaps or problems. Just like this company, that only provided MBA graduates with four days of PTO after a year of service. That’s unfair!
Let’s have a look at what strangers have commented on the post:
