What do you feel an employer owes an employee?

How to Use

Interviewer: What do you feel an employer owes an employee?

Karen: That's an interesting question. I think the answer is quite simple. An employer owes an employee a fair wage, a safe work environment, and a chance to advance within the company.

Interviewer: When you say "chance to advance", what exactly do you mean?

Karen: I mean that a company should provide an employee with opportunities to develop their skills and also move to higher positions within in the company. So, I think an employer should help an employee improve their work skills by giving them more responsibilities when they are ready and by giving them the training to help them learn new skills. Also, a company should have a system that allows hardworking employees to get promotions.

Interviewer: I understand. Why do you think promotions are an important part?

Karen: I think the opportunity to get promoted motivates people to work hard. If there is no chance for advancement, then employees can become complacent.

Interviewer: I agree with you. And just so you know, our company offers many opportunities for advancement for our employees.
