NPR’s Marketplace recently published a series studying the history of corporations and how their priorities have changed over the years. One of the main points of the series focused on the evolution of the role of the employee in relation to the corporation. The fact that employees cannot assume they will be taken care of by their employers resonated with me. While I do believe in personal accountability for one’s own path, I also believe that a company can write their path so that it takes into account the people who are helping bring in revenue, and hopefully profits.
