What You Need to Know to Prove Your Worth

While on maternity leave I watched the Today show a lot and they really do cover quite a few interesting topics.  One was on the topic of knowing your worth and proving it at your job.  How do you do that?  The tip was to know the numbers/financials of your company and the overall business and leverage those to show how what you are doing fits into the overall company success.

For example, I am in marketing.  I would probably look at the revenue and deduce that the budget we are using is helping us sell our products because of the exposure they are getting in print, online and in advertising.  I would then back that up by showing the return on our various investments by pulling together all the relevant metrics available to me.

So, what did you do today?  Did you take a look at your company’s financials?
