The raises we are given actually don’t keep up with the basic cost of living that we experience. Our premiums for our insurance are definitely not limited to 3% like our raises seem to be. And most of the raises at Lowe’s aren’t even approved or reviewed by anyone in the stores anymore, they simply sp– t them out of a computer algorithm at corporate headquarters. Is it any wonder that people complain and quit when no matter how well you do your job it doesn’t seem to matter in your raise?
I’m all for being realistic. I’m not a fool. Lowe’s is a business that’s out to make money. They want to maximize their profits. But when you no longer seem to value your people, care about their opinions or job performance then it seems to me that it begins to impact their behavior, morale and eventually the companies financial performance.
Lowe’s needs to step up their game and start taking their associates seriously, otherwise they’re going to watch as eventually everyone in the building takes a walk to better paying employers.
