Align Interests of the Business

Posted on:September 8, 2021 at 12:13 PM

Great companies push employees to put the company first, above the interests of team or self. However, long-term this only works if the three interests are aligned (mostly). To find a company that aligns with your interest look at what managers say and what they do. If the talk doesn’t match the walk there may be misalignment. Pay close attention to where resources are spent and what incentives exist.

Keep in mind your interests may evolve over time as do the business needs. Larger companies may have a wide variety of internal business needs where you can find the right gap to fill.
