Your job + your values: do they match?

Andrew:

I’m unhappy with my job. I’ve been here for 6 years. The pay is OK, but the w
ork environment sucks! I’m surrounded by power and money-hungry bosses which has created a toxic, back-stabbing culture! I’ve witnessed illegal things here and I’ve personally been the subject of sexual harassment. I feel guilty even feeling this way knowing that there are a lot of people out there who are unemployed, but I feel more guilt enduring behavior and a culture that is completely contrary to my personal values. I dread going to work and I have no sense of pride or accomplishment when I leave. What should I do?
– Stressed in the Springs

Dear Stressed:

This is a pretty common complaint. You HAVE a job, it’s a paycheck so you should be happy and quit complaining, right?

But actually, its not that simple. As a matter of fact, of the 35,000 subscribers on AH Jobs List, 70% are CURRENTLY EMPLOYED! That’s right, 7 out of 10 currently employed professionals are regularly looking for a different job!

Let’s face it: All too often, our lives are our jobs. Our self identity is tied to what we do for a living. We spend more time at the office with our colleagues than we do with our spouses, kids and significant others. When you think of it this way, it is a totally acceptable expectation to be happy and fulfilled with your work. In fact, far too many people forget to take a gut check about their jobs and ask themselves if they are fulfilled and if not, why and what can be done about it.

In many ways, a job is like a relationship. Everyone remembers those first few months at a new job. It is exciting, challenging and fun. There’s the ‘newness’ factor of meeting new people, learning new things and being part of a new team; you getting to know your new colleagues and them getting to know you.

But eventually, what was once ‘new’ now seems routine.

People who you work with who were once fun and exciting now appear normal and boring. The energy and creativity you brought to the job screeches to a halt when it meets the hard, cold reality of entrenched bureaucracies, policies, procedures and budgets. Throw in a good dash of passive-aggressive personalities and office politics and it doesn’t take long for you to begin wondering if you made the right decision committing to this new job.

So, as you consider your future, ask yourself if your core values match your job, your company’s culture and your overall profession in terms of doing what you really WANT to be doing. In addition, use these tips as you consider applying for a job to make sure that they are in line with the job you are taking.

Values important to being happy at work:

Being paid what you are worth.  For many people I’ve met, money is not the most important thing; however, believing that they are being paid what they are worth is critical to feeling valued at work. It is reasonable to be compensated fairly in terms of your skills, your years of experience, your education, your accomplishments and how much you contribute to the team and the company in general.

Doing what you WANT to do.  This one seems simple but it is easy to feel unhappy at work if you are not doing what you want to do. If you have skills and expertise that are not being utilized in your job, it is easy to get bored or worse, resentful and unmotivated. Talk to your boss and find out if there's a position that you can cross-apply for at your company where you can use the skills that will keep you fulfilled.

Being recognized for the work you perform.  It’s easy to feel like a bump on a log if you are not recognized for the work you perform. Yes, most employees are required to perform exemplary work and shouldn’t expect a pat on the back for EVERY thing that is expected of you. But when you’ve put worked after hours and on the weekend, volunteered for the new project no one else wanted, helped solve an unexpected client crisis or anything else that is above and beyond your normal duties, you should be recognized. If you are not, it is easy to feel under-appreciated and it can easily turn to resentment and unhappiness.

Respecting your colleagues and your bosses.  You work hard and value honest and integrity but you constantly see your colleagues flaunt company policies and display boorish and unacceptable behavior. It could be a boss with an anger management problem who yells at everyone creating an environment of anxiety and tension. You witness regular sexual harassment by a superior and don’t feel there’s anything you can do about it. Your colleague constantly pads his expense report or takes an extra 45 minutes at lunch. You witness an inappropriate romantic relationship that results in an unfair promotion.

Respecting your company.  It is important that the values of the organization you work for are in line with your own values. Often I hear stories from employees who work at companies they claim are unethical. They witness client bill padding, illegal financial reporting, or excessive officer bonuses. These types of work conditions are reflective of the company’s overall culture and in general, are easy to detect. A culture of success is not a culture of do anything necessary (even if it is unethical or illegal) to show profits.

Life/Work balance.  While somewhat cliché, there are things that can help us to balance our professional lives and our personal lives. Often, it simply starts with our commute in the morning. Spending an extra two hours on clogged highways to get back and forth to work is not a great way to start and end your work day.  Some people love to travel, others feel that spending two weeks out of the month away from their family is unacceptable. Feeling as if you are always having to put in extra time after hours and on the weekend and not being able to concentrate on your family, hobbies or other priorities is a one-way ticket on the burnout express.

Nonprofit of the Week

The TANK Center for Sonic Arts


About The TANK Center for Sonic Arts

The TANK is an acoustical marvel and a sonic wonder of the world, with a shifting, swirling reverberation longer than the Taj Mahal's. Friends of The TANK [FOTT] is a 501c3 charitable organization dedicated to sharing The TANK through artistic development, sonic research, education, and community outreach.

Forty years ago, when its unique acoustic potential was first recognized, The TANK — an empty steel water tank in Rangely, Colorado — began its secret life as a recording destination for a dedicated group of musicians. When, in 2012, The TANK was in danger of being sold for scrap, that group of musicians formed Friends of The TANK to save this unique resource. 

To that end, FOTT ran a successful Kickstarter Campaign in 2013, raising over $46,000 from more than 750 backers, worldwide. With the invaluable support of volunteers from all over the country, as well as many Rangely area residents and local businesses, those funds were used to secure The TANK and its land, to renovate and rehabilitate The TANK, and to gain legal certification from Rio Blanco County. FOTT installed electrical service, ventilation, and lighting; built an access road and parking lot; cut a full-size door for legal access and to accommodate large instruments for the first time; sealed and painted the floor and walls, built a deck, installed safety fencing, and provided sanitary facilities. FOTT successfully petitioned for a Change of Use permit from storage facility to assembly hall and, once the renovations were complete and all had been brought up to meet international code, The TANK received its Certificate of Occupancy. All of this and more was accomplished almost entirely by volunteers. 

Over two years, $35,000 was raised to purchase a repurposed shipping container from Rhino Cubed in Boulder as a control room and recording studio. In 2015, it was installed next to The TANK.  An additional $10,000 was raised at a fundraiser last year.

During Rangely's Septemberfest 2015, an Open House was held at The TANK that drew musicians, performers, and visitors from angely, Denver, Vernal (Utah), and beyond. Spontaneous jam sessions, a workshop with homeschool students, two concerts at the local elementary school, many hours of sonic exploration by local residents, and a free concert came together at The TANK that weekend. A few weeks later, The Flobots visited The TANK as part of "Detour," a pilot program from Colorado Creative Industries and the Colorado Office of Economic Development. Even before its official opening, The TANK is already known, talked about, and visited by people in the region, and is fast becoming a signature element of the Western Slope. 

FOTT ran another successful Kickstarter campaign earlier this year. Thanks to 694 backers from 18 countries, FOTT raised $63,730 to fund The TANK Center for Sonic Arts as a destination and experience for sonic tourists and local residents alike.  Conceived as a hub of international/local collaboration and sonic experiences, The TANK Center for Sonic Arts will provide a venue for musicians, sound and interdisciplinary artists, architects, sonic thinkers, and other artists and educators from around the world to record, perform, and explore. Through an extensive outreach program, The TANK Center for Sonic Arts will be an educational resource with Days of Sonic Learning and other activities for local school groups, organizations, institutions of higher learning, and residents. Artist residencies will dovetail with community participation. Local youth will learn about audio arts and recording from award-winning producers. The TANK Center for Sonic Arts will provide a focal point for music and sound events across Colorado, and Rio Blanco County will share in the success of The TANK Center for Sonic Arts when concerts, workshops, residencies, and sonic tourism bring the world to Rangely's doorstep.

The TANK Center for Sonic Arts seeks a half-time Executive Director.
