Working to live or living to work?
Many of us were taught at a young age that work is, well, just that: “work.” An unenjoyable, dreary, tiresome part of our life giving us the privilege to get paid. In turn, most of the money earned is spent during the few hours of freedom away from the corporation, necessitating more work to acquire more money to perpetuate the glorious cycle of capitalism.
Yes, enjoying your job was never a prerequisite passed on to us, but rather a bonus that a few shunned people enjoyed.
But times have changed, and career contentment is one of the most sought after and paramount aspects of everyone’s life.
Unfortunately, it appears that we are having serious issues adapting to our new found job culture. In 2016, Canada ranked 17th out of 35 countries surveyed by job search website Job Happiness Index for 2016. The survey’s results suggest job satisfaction has much more to do with work-life balance, adequate training, a sizable paycheque and growth opportunity than merely accepting that work is a means to an end.
In fact, there are several distinct and quantifiable aspects that contribute to job happiness:
- Adequate Training (initial and continuing)
- Superior Communication
- Stress Reduction
- Career Development and Growth Opportunities
- Job Security
- Healthy Work Environment
- Pay and Benefits
But we must first agree, that it is no easy task to deal with the world of business in our days. It is so complex in fact that most employees pay little to no attention to dealing with issues at hands, either accepting them or reminiscing and gossiping while kicking the dirt. Personal work development is at an all-time low, thus perpetuating a revolving career door.
This is where Progressive Human Development Services comes in.
