10 Reasons To Stay In Your Current Job vs 'A Better Job'

Posted On: November 30, 2012, 6:38 pm ; Read: 1278 time(s)
This time of the year is one of the happiest, yet undeniably one of the busiest. With the holidays almost upon us, our schedules are overflowing with deadlines, tasks we simply must complete before the holiday and items we want to have ready.  We struggle to accomplish as much as we could to buffer us during the holiday break and hopefully, lessen the avalanche of tasks that we usually get when we get back to the office.
 
In addition to the 'at work load' there are also personal and social pressures. We have family gatherings to go to, Christmas parties, company events, meet ups with friends, and Christmas shopping... the list just goes on!
 
Amidst all the chaos and cramming, this is also the time when we reflect on the past year, assess how we did, evaluate our careers, where we stand in the corporate ladder and as if we are not busy enough, we try to decide where we want to be in the coming year. New year, new friends, new work environment, a better job perhaps?
 
This is why we believe it's timely to share BRW's 10 reasons to stay in a job which touches on 10 solid reasons why employees should consider staying with their respective companies.
 
David K. Williams and Mary Michelle Scott have say in the article that "statistics show the majority of employees at every level are unhappy enough in their current positions to be actively or at least passively considering new jobs. As business owners, we have big incentives to do all we can to keep our talented people around. As business owners, we have big incentives to do all we can to keep our talented people around. But beyond our own motives, we think it’s often good for employees to stick around, too."
 
They go on to list their 10 reasons employees should stay in a job which include: Seniority, Leadership opportunities, Stability, Homeownership, Increased benefits, Self-Improvement, Dependability, Flexibility, Perseverance, and a say in the company’s future.
 
 

When we think about it, people often say that they "want a better job" or that they aren't happy in their current job. Surely we have to pause for a moment and think though, what exactly is a better job?

I think there are pro's and con's to staying in a job. Sometimes there are external influences that contribute to the decision. However I'd agree with the list of 10 here.
