Change Your Career!
By: Bailey Morton
Today’s workplace is much different today than it was 10 years ago. How? There’s some many reasons for these changes such as new computer programs, machinery, new people, dress codes, different shifts, etc… Every day there is new changes being made into the work place.
Computer programs change the workplace today because you have new software. Machines are being improved with technology and it’s being improved to the point where you wouldn’t really need a worker to work that machine. There’s new people coming in and out of companies.
Some people can/can’t adjust to the new changes into today’s workplace. You have different generations that you work with and every generation has some experiences that other generations may not have. For example, my generation today knows how to work a lot of technology.
Dress codes depend on where you work and what you’re doing. Everyone has their own little style, but some of those styles are too much for wherever you work. Ages from 30-50 are use to first shift working while ages from 15/16-29 are use to 2nd shift due to the fact that their sleeping schedule is out of proportion.
You can improve your skills to adjust to the new changes if you use self-management skills. But yet again, the company will have employee training and education. This can keep your skills and knowledge up-to-date. This can help you become a lifelong learner because there’s always something new to learn about technology back then and today’s technology.
Continuing to improve your skills and knowledge may lead you up to a promotion to something better. You continue to learn that way when you move up in the company.
