Remember the days when one employee stayed at a company for years? Neither do we. Gone are the days when employees were loyal to their establishment. Talent acquisition has become a major task for both staffing companies, and firms, whatever their size. The major problem is that people look at short-term gains, and not the long term ones; we’re here to change their minds. Given below are benefits of being a long-term employee in an organization:
· Leaders in the making: It’s general human tendency. People tend to trust others that have been with their firm for a while; especially the upper management. Those that have stuck by, have probably done so through thick and thin, and have seen their company at its best, as well as worst. The biggest responsibilities are often handed over to these candidates, who over time, become leaders.
· Perks: Whether it’s getting leave whenever you want, better pay hikes, or extended insurance benefits, long-term employees have them all! Take a sabbatical, and nobody has a problem. Speak to everyone with authority, and nobody will say a thing. Tweak meeting times, and yet, people won’t mind. These are just some of the perks of being a old employee.
· Flexible Job Profile: Once you’ve learnt the tricks of the trade of one department in your organization, you’ll be encouraged to do the same for other departments that hold your interest. This just keeps adding feathers to your cap, and within no time (after a long time), you’re the jack-of-all-trades!
· Company Future: If you’ve given it all to your career and company, you’ll get it back. Your company helped you grow, and now, you can do the same. Only old employees who understand how the company works and know about its past can help decide its future.
This era, being one with the start-up boom, has endless opportunities both for an employer and employee. Whether you approach the company directly, or go via a staffing solutions agency, make sure you’re a memorable recruit.
