Clearly it’s clarity.
The irrational thoughts have escaped from me. I will miss them for this short period of time. I have work to do for now.
Not the work I want to do but the work I have to do.
Bills have to be paid. Food needs to be on the table.
I dread going to work. It isn’t that I hate working. I enjoy working. When I work under my own terms. Those you work for may have other ideas for you.
Employers often do not see their employees for what they are.
They may hire people to fill a void. The work needed to be done is essential for their business.
Are they utilizing their assets to the fullest potential? Not likely. It is a jungle which those who want power and money manipulate management for positions which fulfill the employees needs.
The employee who uses manipulation to satisfy their goals will be found out sooner or later. They are likely not the best candidate for the job. They cover their tracks by being under managements thumb.
Both sides eventually lose. At best, the employer gains a “yes man” at high cost for little work accomplished.
In my eyes the ideal strategy would be for management to put people in positions in which they would excel at. Instead of putting a job posting up and only considering those who are applying they could and should have a plan to adjust positions of current employees.
The employees are their assets. Much like a brokerage firm will shift assets from one fund to another.
My current employer seems to have a willingness to keep costs low by shifting employees from location to location to make them miserable. How does this benefit the employer or keep costs down? Their irrational thought is that current employees who have seniority make the maximum pay. If the employee quits they can hire another person at the minimum wage allowed.
It is ingrained in their business model so they do not see the potential before them. They look at their business as customers are going to shop at their store, no matter what.
They do not realize money or raises do not motivate an employee alone. A happy and healthy employee, who is skilled at the work they are doing, is the greatest asset a company can have.
Employers need to utilize psychology along with the personality traits of their employees to become successful.
If they did. Then I wouldn’t be typing this while avoiding the dread which is sure to come.
