Lập dàn ý
In this modern era, switching jobs now and then is no longer something unfamiliar, especially to the millennials. This present-time tendency has posed a debate of whether job-hopping or life-long employment would be more beneficial for the employees, the employers, or the public. This essay will look at both standpoints and suggest its favor for the long-term employment of one workplace.
It is understandable why someone advocates job changing. The first reason is that switching to a different job keeps employees busy and helps them develop valuable professional skills. When a person starts a new job, he is kicked out of his comfort zone and forced to learn new systems, new routines, new names, and new people’s skills. A staff who has flexibility and willingness to enter the unknown will be an asset to companies that require a mobile and malleable workforce. Moreover, it is difficult to significantly increase the annual salary while staying at the same company because a wage raise is usually calculated as a percentage of the base salary. Therefore, employees often switch between jobs to enjoy such financial gain.
However, there are more sound reasons to believe that aiming to stay at the same job career-long seems to be a more holistic solution. Firstly, while I acknowledge a major downside of a one-workplace career is stagnation, this issue can be solved by training programs offered either internally or externally. This means remaining at the same job can still secure one’s professional development. Secondly, a company may operate more sustainably if it can keep the turnover rate minimal. This comes down to the fact that a firm appears to suffer from significant financial loss if their staff leave too often, as they would have to pay more for recruiting and training processes. Also, failing to maintain loyal personnel would affect its reputation, leading to more difficulty in attracting talented workers and maintaining a strong workforce, which is a key factor for the healthy development of an organization.
To conclude, it is persuasive that encouraging people to stay at the same job would have more gains than losses at all levels rather than doing the other way around. Nonetheless, an employee should feel free to consider a shift in occupation if it is more suitable for their situation.
