Do you ever think about the legacy you will leave when you are no longer with your company?
With unemployment near double-digits in many states, some employees are being forced to leave their companies because of the recession. While many employees leave of their own free will, others do not. Regardless, each employee leaves a legacy behind.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, “The length of time a worker remains with the same employer increases with the age at which the worker began the job. Of the jobs that workers began when they were ages 18 to 22, 72% of those jobs ended in less than a year and 94 % ended in fewer than 5 years. Among jobs started by workers when they were ages 38 to 42, 31 % ended in less than a year and 65 % ended in fewer than 5 years.”
What is the mark you want to leave? Are you building a legacy you can be proud of? I’d love to hear your thoughts.
