Not to hurt anyone and with all due respect to all, I am sharing my thoughts… In this pandemic phase, one post I have seen almost everywhere which is regarding job and criticism about HRs, recruiters, hiring managers. Having worked on both the positions many times I also came across such candidates who needed a job, but not given chance due to certain parameters that are sad, we can not understand someone’s pain until we are in their shoes.
Without being biased to any profession or company, as human many times, I came across the other side of the coin as well, where employers were/are ready to put efforts, ready to teach, ready to give a chance to prove but employees were/are not serious about jobs. Employers mostly play the role of villain in everyone’s eye, that they fire without a second thought, without thinking about their employees or their lives, etc. But I have seen many employees as well who join one organization and collect offer letters from others and then leave suddenly!
I feel efforts and understanding should be from both sides. Employers should understand that every person is different and can’t match their standards quickly, many times there are cases where employee tries to give 100% efforts but still, things don’t work out but it doesn’t mean the employee was sitting idle. Employees should be asked if something is missing in their training because sometimes small doubts make big problems.
Similarly, Employees should also understand when they join an organization, they are supposed to play the role well, they are supposed to work, things should not be like just after one hectic week employee say “too much work pressure is there in this organization, I can not work”. Good or bad things are not going to be the same dear. Employers assign work so an employee can learn.
All training and learning do not need to have a Name some are live training in the form of work and responsibility. Employers hire freshers, interns, to them a chance to grow. Not only employees, but employers also invest their time and energy in employees. A good employer knows the side of the employee as well and many times they give chance, ignore mistakes make you learn, and understand your situation and problems. We all have spent a good amount of time of our lives enjoying and sitting idle when you join an organization intending to a goal to make a career, you are supposed to work.
We spend lots of money on different courses to learn so we can get the job but not ready to work and learn in organizations where we get money in return instead of spending. Cost and time are attached to every hiring, and the hiring manager is also an employee for the company whose target is to hire you but employees who leave suddenly put the hiring manager in danger even then the employee plays the role of victim in everyone’s eyes… What do you say?
