It’s me again, I appologise for the delay in updates – in this time of technological advancements, gremlins still thrive, if not more than ever before. Now that the formalities are out of the way, let’s get on with business.

I wish today to gripe about an irksome phenomenon I have encountered in modern business practice. The problem is the lack of loyalty in the employment world, between employer to employee, and visa versa. For the past 100 years, one would find a job, usually in a very low position and stick it through. For the next thirty years that was your job, no your career, and by the time you retired at sixty you were in a high positions. Does any of this sound familiar to you? If you answered yes, I didn’t hear you because this is typed on to a web site and you are sitting at your desk no where near me. Your colleagues have turned and looked at you, because you are staring at a computer screen saying things like “yes”. I digress.

 If you answered yes, (in your head this time, because saying it aloud was a little embarrassing), then you are a rare person. To me the concept of a person being loyal to a company for 30 years or the other way around for that matter is completely foreign. It is something I learned about, along with the industrial revolution in high school history classes.

Employment agents will tell you that the average time one should spend working at a company is 5 years. 5 years, is it just me or is that nuts. I think it would be just grand if a person could settle into a job and know that they are there for the long haul. They can grow and progress, without deciding to cut and run. So long and thanks for the experience.

Okay I griped. I feel better now. I am very interested to see what the next evolution will be in terms of employment, and with the seeming impending downfall of the giant corporates. Will the little privateer ships of the small business world completely revolutionize the vast oceans of the employment world?

That’s all for now folks.
