Have you ever stopped to think about why your job exists? Why the company hired you?
The bottom line is that your job exists to make or save money. That’s why it exists. Making and saving money both contribute to the bottom line but in different ways.
We often hear of companies that exist to create better social environments, work with fair trade practices, and support local charities and nonprofits. But a business cannot accomplish any of those without money.
Without money, they can’t stay in business, and if they can’t stay in business, they can’t contribute to society.
Or to your paycheck.
Your position dictates how you help your company make a profit, how much they pay you, and whether or not you advance.
