Just Doing My Job

This morning, our President called me to her office. I thought she was going to talk to me about our out-of-town meeting tomorrow. As soon as I got in her office she smiled at me and waved, gesturing for me to sit down. "Congratulations!" She said and handed me an envelope. Inside was a Certificate from the Bank. It states there that they appreciate me living up to our core values and promise to our customers. There is also the commendation and Starbucks gift certificates. Last October, a delighted client sent a message to our Chairman telling of her great customer experience and how I was a great help. The Chairman sent me an e-mail to congratulate me and our team for having a client go out of her way to talk about her satisfaction. Apparently, the President nominated me. Wow! I was thankful. Honestly, I did not realize that I was going the extra mile. All I know is during the time the client was transacting with me is that I was just doing my job. I am a Sales Officer and always on call. She calls me before and ater office hours and I take her calls or return them when I missed any. I was patiently explaining computations to her and was willing to repackage to meet her needs. Little did I know that doing my job (the right way I suppose) delighted her and I was complimented for that. It was more than enough that the client appreciated it and now I got the bonus of having a Certificate and oh it was announced thru the bank's e-mail nationwide. How was your day?

@nottoooldtowrite indeed. the significant others of the clients my students handle in the area always show their appreciation when we leave, with their sincere smiles of "thank you, ma'am" and that is already enough to boost the ego of my students and me too.

@ridingbet so true. A simple thank you is enough to know that you are appreciated. So knowing that, we too should make sure that we do not forget to thank those who did something for us; be it as simple as opening the elevator for us or as heroic as catching us from a fall.

I hope that they will give you a higher salary increment and bonus based on this. A letter of commendation is nothing if the salary increment is just the same as all others.

They gave a Certificate of Appreciation and Starbucks gift certificates. Well, in the next rating that commendation should count. Thanks but I am happy that I was appreciated.
