I received a recognition for my ‘exemplary performance’ at work a few weeks ago.
At first, I was delighted as I thought my diligence was acknowledged, strengthened by top scoring statistics and good mentions from significant assessors. Then it breaks my heart when you hear some people say,
” its about time – she is quite senior after all “
Now I am not quite sure if I earn it at all…. out of excellent work or just sheer ‘seniority’..
