This started out as a simple discussion topic on Gearheads Without Borders, but it’s worth sharing here.
Do you care about what you do for a living? Does it matter? Or are you just another brick in the wall; working just hard enough to not get fired, since the company’s made it clear you won’t see additional reward for additional effort?
My friend Valeria posted this. It’s solid advice not just on how to stay employable, but also how to keep those you employ engaged. (When you pay someone to do something, you’re employing them, by the way.)
