The Entrepreneur’s Source Explores Top Career Complaints
With nearly half of all middle-class Americans lacking confidence in their ability to save sufficiently for retirement, many individuals are researching new professional opportunities. Researching common career complaints, The Entrepreneur’s Source has worked to provide workers with the tools necessary for going from Employment to Empowerment™ and cure Battered Career Syndrome™.
“Battered Career Syndrome means being subjected to the frustration of turning to the next career path in the company you work for, and then being downsized, right sized or let go, and then having to start over again,” said Terry Powell founder of The Entrepreneur’s Source. “It is when you find out your job has been outsourced, disappeared, or that the company has cut back. Battered Career Syndrome is something that exists in a very large percentage of employment situations today.”
Top Three Common Career Complaints:
1) Lack of communication. Just like any relationship, a lack of communication between two parties can lead to disastrous results. The National Business Research Institute has found that a lack of communication between an employee and employer typically begins when a worker is afraid to speak up to managers for fear of retribution, which can be a valid or not. Strong communication between an employer and employee is constantly evolving. Many organizations are still unable or unwilling to create the necessary processes and devote resources to developing this protocol.
2) Absence of job security. While the Great Recession has officially been labeled over by politicians and economic researchers alike, many professionals feel their jobs are still in jeopardy. Corporations are still laying off large groups of people, even entire departments or sending positions overseas.
3) Decreased empowerment. After facing layoffs and outsourcing, professionals in various industries are suffering financially and emotionally. The everyday grind can wear someone down. Empowerment is based on the concept of self-sufficiency, according to The Entrepreneur’s Source Founder Terry Powell and Brand Manager Tamara Loring.
