I Wish I Work For A Google!
While our world continues to develop and change rapidly, technological developments continue to remove the physical border between countries. Tech giants, called Unicorn and reaching billion-dollar valuations in a very short time, continue to be the institutions that today's young people dream of working most. But is it really the way we think it is?
Recently, I came across an interesting piece of data. These data belong to the world's largest companies. Besides being the biggest companies in the world, these companies have another common feature. That is, many people dream of working in these companies. If you are one of those who say, "I wish I could go on Google, I would retire from there twice", you may want to take a look at the average employee times below.
Facebook : 2,02 Years
Google : 1,90 Years
Oracle : 1,89 Years
Apple : 1,85 Years
Amazon : 1,84 Years
Twitter : 1,83 Years
Microsoft : 1,81 Years
AirBnB : 1,64 Years
Snapchat : 1,62 Years
Uber : 1,23 Years
Yeah, I'm just as confused as you. Imagine an employee earning one of the highest salaries in the market, working in a work environment as fun as Disneyland without time pressure, even sleeping at work when he gets sleepy. You may think that you can work forever in such a job, but even these conditions are not enough to keep employees in the company.
We are all aware that generation Z is a generation that consumes quickly. These fast consumption habits are also reflected in the career. Great Place's to Work is the organization that is organized each year 'Turkey's Best Employers' even in this year's first with Microsoft Corporation's award work time means that there are things that need to be questioned no longer reaches 2 years.
Of course, these times are the average of research done around the world. When we look at the situation in our country, the average working time of the X generation varies between 7-11 years, 5-7 years for the Y generation, and 0-4 years for the Z generation.
Money, ambition, chance to change the world, no matter how good the vision and title are, are not enough to retain employees. So what's missing? I think it is insufficient to search for the answer to this question in material resources. Perhaps one of the biggest deficiencies in business life is spirituality. Only holding on to financial resources can lead to quitting when a better offer comes or in case of dissatisfaction. Perhaps we need to work not only for material resources, but also for spiritual feelings such as belonging, justice, honor and loyalty.
Our past experiences and ancestors emphasize that stability is always better. What if what we know is not enough for the future, and if the working method that will shape the future is constantly changing jobs? Here is a question that this time will answer.
