Hungry for a Raise? New Research Shows Connection Between Hunger & Entitlement

Brown_Bag_LunchIf you’re hungry for a promotion, raise or project you’re negotiating, new research suggests skipping lunch.

Apparently people who are physically hungry are more likely to feel entitled. In turn, this mental hunger of entitlement can fuel confidence.

Emily Zitek, author of the study and professor at Cornell University’s School of Industrial and Labor Relations, told The Wall Street Journal there is a fine line. Consider this: Feeling entitled too much can create strife at the office. Plus, completely famished colleagues may be less likely to work together in a collaborative setting and more likely to “annoy everyone with comments about what they deserve.” Read more

We want to remind you that it’s perfectly okay to not want that big job and fine to feel content where you are right now. And it’s also completely fine (hey, who are we to judge anyway, right?) to pursue a lateral move for the sake of learning something new that’s not the next rung on the corporate ladder. Read more

Congratulations! You worked hard, got recognized and landed that coveted promotion!

What happens when the dust settles and you realize your salary hasn’t been properly increased to reflect the new job responsibilities?

“Speak up, but craft your message and the timing carefully: Express gratitude for the acknowledgment and enthusiasm for taking on more responsibility. And it is legitimate to say you thought the compensation would be commensurate with the new job.”

Essentially, the conversation surrounding the factors relating to compensation could be helpful from a growth perspective to hear upper management’s reasoning behind the insignificant adjustment. Plus, it gives you the opportunity to hold your ground and move forward to “revisit and review the compensation in the future.”
