Why People Stay in a Job Longer Than They Should

Why People Stay in a Job Longer Than They Should

Changing permanent jobs on a frequent basis is a problem and eventually will prevent companies from seeing you as a viable hiring option. That said, staying at a job too long when an employee really knows they should leave is also a problem. Remaining in a job that is no longer a good fit or one that isn’t taking you towards your career goals can be driven by both practical and emotional reasons. Some of the practical reasons are things like a decent paycheck, benefits, and the anticipation of future work experience that will look good on your resume. While these things all matter, it’s worth asking if you could get these things or improve upon them at another company that would be a better opportunity and cultural fit. Some of the emotional reasons employees stay are fear of making a change, concerns about the unknowns in a new job opportunity, or a sense of loyalty you feel towards your current boss and colleagues. Let’s take a deeper look at each of these and the psychology behind why people stay at a role that is no longer serving their best long term interest.

Bridging the Gap with Millennials and Gen Z

Bridging the Gap with Millennials and Gen Z

Millennials and now Gen Z are the face of young professional talent and the future of business in more ways than one. As the older generation begins entering retirement, positions are opening for younger generations to hold more responsibility and bring new ideas to the table across almost every industry. However, it’s no secret that the younger generation is perceived differently - Growing up in the age of technology and progressing with its advances, they have shifted their focus much more toward innovation than tradition. Due to this, along with millennials and Gen Z’s come many preconceived ideas about this group as a whole. In order to get past these perceptions about their unconventional contributions to the workplace, it is important for managers to understand these young professionals to properly lead them. Here are things senior, and typically more tenured, managers can consider when connecting with these younger generations, ultimately leading both groups to achieve better results.

Why leaving your job with a professional notice matters, whether it’s been short-term or long-term!

Why leaving your job with a professional notice matters, whether it’s been short-term or long-term!

As our society moves more and more toward communicating through email, text messaging and other forms of e-communication where we are not face to face it has appeared to become easier and easier for people to seemingly dismiss the traditional professional notice. We’ve seen candidates resign by sending a text, by leaving a letter on a bosses desk with no other communication, by firing off an email or by simply not showing back up. It’s unbelievable to me what has become acceptable to some people. I would strongly caution anyone from thinking that it’s ok to resign in any of these ways or to not offer a professional 2 week notice.
