Redefining the way we think about work.
Knowing and understanding your Emotional Salary can help you to obtain clarity on how to design and shape the career you have always wanted……
Emotional Salary is the non-financial gains we obtain from working that motivate us, change our perception of work and lead to personal and professional development.
Emotional Salary will be different for each individual. For some, the most important aspect of working may be the opportunity to socialise and make friends at work, whilst for others, this may not be important at all and having the opportunity to become an expert in their chosen field or maximise their creativity will be what they value most.
The ESB is an online tool which measures the Emotional Salary of a working individual (whether employed or freelance). It generates an individual report detailing the Emotional Salary of that individual, together with a plan on how to increase it.
We want to transform the perception of work by supporting individuals and organisations in recognising the importance of Emotional Salary and its profound impact on organisational performance and employee wellbeing.
“Wow, this was so spot on! In reading the different factors, and the ‘benefits’ and ‘things to be aware’ of – wow! Very insightful, and relatable. The process itself was easy and enjoyable – didn’t take too long, wasn’t too dense. Now let’s see what I do with it!”
As a newbie entrepreneur working from home whilst raising 3 kids, I show up every day to create something valuable for my clients. To do so, I need to bring my whole self to work and to do that requires attitude, authenticity and awareness. It wasn’t until I met Marisa and completed her Emotional Salary Barometer that I found an accurate definition of this key element, which I had been cultivating “in the shadow”.
Marisa encouraged me to take the Barometer she and her team had developed based on vast research data analysis. I must admit I was reluctant at first, since I thought that this “salary” was just for employees of big (dehumanised) companies. To my surprise it helped me better understand what I deeply value, what is missing and where my blind spots are. I received a comprehensive report with tangible data, metrics and practical tips of where there is room for improvement.
From now on I have a reliable tool to measure and manage my emotional salary together with the ownership of increasing it. I have no doubt that as this tool lifted me, it can lift others as well.
For me, the emotional salary is the best reward you can get at work. There is no money to justify illness at work, including mental illness. It was important for me to validate that I have a high emotional salary. This is a reflection of my previous professional choices. However, I can improve my emotional salary. The Emotional Salary Barometer report has all the information very well organized and explained in a way that is accessible to all. It also includes some aspects that we can consider to increase our emotional salary. I recommend it because I think it is an advantage for everyone to know the emotional salary that our work gives us or not.
I’d like to present my experience and appreciation of the Emotional Salary Barometer.
Firstly, on a personal level, the Barometer managed to reflect very well where I am at this moment in my life. Few tools are so accurate in terms of measuring the professional, personal and work experiences of an individual in their current situation. The advice and questions I received will also enable me to continue my growth in the future.
Secondly, I can see the potential as a consultant. The tool helps me to have a valuable conversation with the company, the leader of a team and with the individual. It enables me to guide the company and its leaders to generate greater wellbeing in the team and commitment from employees. With an individual, it is especially valuable to enable you to focus your energy on what can empower you and help you achieve your goals.
I have personally taken the test, and would highly recommend everyone to do the same, and learn a thing or two about oneself. Income is important, but there are many other important factors that make for a great job/company. After experiencing how detrimental the lack of emotional salary in a company can be, I would definitely say “yes” to a company that offered the emotional salary. For me independence, room for innovation and creativity, knowledge sharing tick the emotional box.
