If you're an employee, figuring out a way to do your work 10 times faster is your problem. Your employer has hired you for a task in exchange for a salary. If the task is done, you deserve the salary. End of story.
Why? Because the crazy amount of studies you put yourself into, and which today allows you to be that performant, doesn't belong to your employer. It belongs to you. So if your employer wants you to get more done, he has to pay more. Automation is not work you did today, it's work you did years before and which enables you to be over-performing today.
If you're an associate, then the company's interests are aligned with your interests. Then you should act accordingly.
The fact that your employer gives you a salary and no capital in exchange for your work proves that your interests are not aligned with the company's interests.
If your employer is not happy with that, he can either:
- Automate those tasks by himself
- Find some slave (other than you)
- Invite you to be an associate
My main point is: nowadays a lot of people (especially here on the Workplace - see the current most upvoted answer) tend to confuse being an employee and being an associate. Employers take advantage of this confusion. Don't fall into that trap.
Forget the BS about "team spirit", "we're in the same boat", etc. This is just marketing (directed towards employees). If your employer wants you in his boat, he has to make you an associate.
Employee: you're paid for a task. The company's interests are not your interests. Once the task is done, you're done. The amount of time you put into it doesn't count.
Associate: the company's interests are your interests. Act accordingly.
