Today’s employees have come a long way. In the last few decades, the workplace has changed in many ways, and so have workers. Employees are no longer just cogs in the engines of industry; they’ve transformed themselves into a company’s most valued assets. With the right talent, companies are achieving more now than ever before.
The career paths of our grandparents are also long gone. Very few people work for the same company for 40, 20, or even 10 years like they used to. In previous times, employees were content to climb the corporate ladder within a single company, and happy to work the long hours necessary to slowly make their way up the ranks. Now they’re forging their own career paths, switching companies and even industries as they choose.
