One of the most common paradigms that has been around for a long time is to get a “good” job with a company and if you work hard enough and show loyalty, you will be rewarded through job promotions, higher pay and better benefits.
Plus if you show loyalty, you will be given job security.
In recent times, especially over the last couple of decades, that paradigm has been challenged and there are some risky downsides to be operating from that paradigm. I think this idea of job security is a thing of the past.
Why do I say that?
Having experienced and also witnessed company restructuring, downsizing or rightsizing throughout my career, I’ve seen firsthand how it affects people and how they respond when change is forced upon them.
