Love is in the Air
Posted by Amy Wilson on February 21, 2008
I first fell in love with “my job” when I joined Peoplesoft in the 90’s. I didn’t realize why at the time, other than the fact that I got paid more and could fly home from my assignment on Thursdays instead of Fridays. Years later, I find myself intoxicated by the research area of employee engagement and I know exactly why: I was valued (and optimally leveraged), I was developing new skills, and I had a strong sense of community and pride.
Over the years, “my job” and I have had fights and I’ve even considered leaving on occasion. But I’ve always been able to re-ignite that spark through new, exciting projects, rewarding relationships, and opportunities for growth.
“My job” and I recently celebrated our 10th anniversary. We’ve never been happier.
(Happy Valentine’s Day … err Week)
