Employment is a mutual contract

I am listening to the Infinite Game audiobook by Simon Sinek this morning, and in the course of the book, he gets to the responsibility of the employee. This is a subject not being taught to most young people in this country and subject I think should be a mandatory class in high school. A job is a contract between a company and an individual. The company offers wages and benefits, and the individual provides their time and services in return.

It is a somewhat lopsided contract in that it is much easier for the company to higher a new employee than it is for the individual to find new employment should an issue arise.

An issue that I am seeing is both sides of that contract seem to have forgotten or never learned their respective responsibilities.



My reflections gathered through reading, listening, personal work experience and observation 

The most important thing in communication is hearing what isn't said.
