Life & Career
The World Of Work Is Changing



By Craig Nathanson 2003!

    Beware: Reading this article may be dangerous to old ways of thinking. When I originally wrote this article in 1994, these ideas seemed radical to some. Now that I look back, these ideas don't seem that way at all. With today's economy and lack of long term support by many organizations for their people, it's more important then ever before to take responsibility for one's life. I revised and added new thoughts to this article reflecting where the world of work is today and what you can do to control your own destiny towards your vocational passion !

    Change used to be controllable for employees and their employers. Things don't seem familiar any more!

    Work was controllable, done in one place at a certain time by certain people.

    Customers in fact were fairly certain too. It usually took a crisis for change to occur if at all.

    Work in fact in the good old days, say thirty years ago consisted of making things. In fact over 50 percent of the workers back then were making things. In another thirty years, some estimates are only ten percent of the workers will be making things... We will have in affect, a thinking group of workers. Well, that's fine you ask, what about now. American business culture still is driven largely by the we win, you lose mentality. Job security is dead. Loyalty from employers to their people is nearly gone. Employees are wondering as well, who is really looking out for them. Outplacement services are up in record numbers. Revolving doors swing throughout this nation. Employers outplace employees, a kinder 2003 term for fire, only to realize in many cases a need to rehire a short time later. The cycle then starts again, loss of human potential, increased hiring costs, recruitment, section, orientation and training. With merit pay, cost of living increases on the decline, promotion raises harder to achieve, what can employees do to regain control over their vocational lives and develop? There are trends to be aware and take action on now.
