What is an employee – “An employee is a term for workers and managers working for a company, organization or community. These people are the staff of the organization. Generally speaking, any person hired by an employer to do a particular job is an employee.”
Now that you know that you are hired to do a certain job at the office for a set wage you have no recourse to ask for more wages as time goes on unless its specified in the contract or you have added extra value to the work place and brought in more money.

We shall go over the list of employee benefits seen in companies in 2015.
What is employment?
In Wikipedia it is the ..
“Employment is a relationship between two parties, usually based on a contract, one being the employer and the other being the employee.”
You must look at evaluating your contract from time to time with your employer. Make sure you have increased your skill sets regularly and are at the cutting lead of the science or technology available to deliver more to the company that what is being asked. This way you will always have a job and possibly be paid more than your fellow work mates. This is one area where most employees slip as they rarely upgrade their skills after they sign up with a company. Study is the last thing on on agenda.

If you are I want you to think about this…
I want you to just imagine being an employee for a second with these great employee benefits packages. Yes you have a job and that’s great. But isn’t it similar to the life of a jail bird where you are being forced to go to work each day for the fear of losing your employment. All because you need the income to pay for your family expenses. Prisoners work in similar conditions. They too are forced to do work (yes maybe for far less and definitely they are rounded up at night and trucked back to prison). They are just like you.
The only difference with an employee is that they can go home each night to sleep in the bed at home as part of the company benefits for employees. But if they don’t turn up next day for work they are in trouble with the employer. The employer owns your time.
For what? The small wage the employer gives you each week. You live in silent fear that if you don’t perform you will be among those made redundant today in the country.
