When we talk about ROI, normally it’s in the context of what WE can get back for something we’ve invested in.
Yet, has it ever come to mind that individuals have an ROI attached to them? That companies INVEST in individuals like you or I expecting RESULTS? Companies also don’t just invest in anyone, they are investing in YOU and maybe if thinking of it that way, we can throw out the phrase ‘just another day at the office’.
I never like being told a job is a job, because I don’t feel like the 9-5 type any how. Add on to that this idea that a company pays me personally to get the job done, yes I want to show them the ROI in my work is worth it day in and day out. I also just love working hard, i can’t think of it another way.
It also comes to mind that people are getting used to government benefits like the stimulus checks that they don’t want to go back to work. I can’t imagine it’s a majority of the country, but numbers still show a slow hiring process due to unwillingness to work. What if we instilled in people that companies are willing to re-invest in them and their talents? Wouldn’t that inspire them to stop relying on government help and become Independent again?
It’s Independence Day weekend, don’t be afraid to be an Independent worker who realizes their worth and realizes they aren’t meant to be on the government dime forever.
We are not celebrating Independence Day just to be dependent on Uncle Sam 24/7!
I talked about this on my latest podcast on the idea of ROI being reflected on us as well!
