Some days ago, we came across a bizarre concept saying “Love your job, but not your company.” It was something that really puzzled us and Vishwas decided to share a few thoughts on how flawed and self-destructive this logic can be!
Why should we make things mutually exclusive? For all practical reasons, you need to love your job AND your company to be successful. Any negative emotion, no matter how small, can never allow you to put in your 100% effort & sincerity.
I have observed that most successful employees are ones who felt strongly about the cause they are working for. Mind you, they never blindly liked everything. They called a spade a spade & changed things for good.
‘Don’t love your company’ philosophy might be triggered because a company can let you go. But the fact is an employee can do so too by resigning. So, it’s a two-way street where both employer & employee come together for a common goal with a win-win relationship.
Like every relationship, sometimes things don’t work out & we have to move on. That doesn’t mean, we ask people to ‘not love your company.’ That’s bizarre!
Choose your employer wisely after aligning your goals with that of the company. Only then can you give your 110% & emerge successfully We are not machines, we are human. We cannot have a win or lose employment scenario. We must make it a win-win situation!
