It’s too busy at work at the moment. Don’t even have time to breathe never mind think about what I’m doing. As usual they’ve sent the mailings out all at once instead of staggering them. At the same time they’ve put out media advertisements. Now we are inundated. It would be good for the company if they had enough staff to cope! Trouble is that people are so pressurised there are many off sick – stress to be exact. They do it all the time. They never learn.
We’re now coming up to the end of this financial year at work. This month has not been as busy as it normally is this time of year. I reckon it’s the calm before the storm though. There are mailings going out and they’re pushing certain types of cover this next week, so I’m expecting it to get mega busy. After all, the company wants to get as much in as possible before the end of the financial year.
We’re normally run off our feet and ripping our hair out until the end of April, then it begins to get a bit quieter.
There have been many changes in the company over this year, including the levelling out of the salaries and a bit of restructuring in the higher levels. It will be interesting to see what happens next year, although those of us who are long time employees are not looking forward to the new salary bands that have been put in place. It’s made many of us feel that the work we have put in is disregarded. So I hope that they put something in place to show us that our experience and knowledge is actually appreciated for a change.
Yes, it will be interesting.
