Inspiration for today’s blog is Goldie’s last post:
The blog talks about how much amount right of speech employees should have when they don’t agree with the company they work for.
On one hand we are all entitled to our opinion.
On the other hand, in a time where finding a job isn’t particularly easy, probably 50 others are happy to “shut up and work”.
Today’s question is:
Did you choose the company, you work for, because you’re passionate about that field of business?
Every company needs an HR or IT department, managers and technical staff.
But did you choose the specific business or just the job?
I work for a Wind Power company.
Not because I’m such a “green person”.
I don’t do a lot of waste control. Don’t say it, I know.
I drive the car a lot, not just for work.
I too often forget to turn off the light because life is really freaking hectic.
I throw old clothes away instead of giving them away. I honestly think if they are not good enough for me, they shouldn’t be good enough for anyone else. I don’t possess any high end or quality brands.
I just like the engineering in a Wind Turbine.
The other day we drove by a tobacco company.
“What if you’d get a great job opportunity at a company like this?”, I asked to Jasper, “One where you get to travel to nice locations, get an awesome salary and your colleagues are hilarious yet proffesional”.
I asked this, knowing that Jasper hates smoking much more than I do.
He gave me that “sounds tempting” look.
You probably wouldn’t be surprised, I’d take it.
I don’t have too many standards in life when it comes to work.
We all know ALL organisations are commercial and nasty.
Yes, including hospital and other “NGO’s”.
