Responsible attitude to pay revealed by survey

Newly
promoted staff prefer the increase in responsibilities to the extra cash, if
new research is to be believed.

Three
out of four workers promoted in the past five years told an online poll that
added responsibility was more important than a pay rise.

Company
directors were the least likely to make financial gains their priority, with
just 9 per cent citing a pay rise as the main benefit of promotion.

Professional
staff were the most desperate for more money with 19 per cent claiming an
increased salary was the most important gain when moving up the career ladder.

The
research, by recruitment firm Reed, also found that public sector staff were
likely to prioritise money when looking for a promotion.
