Embracing the Entitled – Part 1

In today’s fiercely competitive marketplace, employers are rolling out the red carpet to create a unique and engaging workplace. On-site massage therapists, nap pods, and intra-office pet daycare are all real examples of perks in the workplace that can make even the most grounded individual lose sight of reality. But even without these outrageous perks, the truth is that no organization is immune to the virus of entitlement. Ironically, it was just a few short years ago that the prevailing mindset was a sense of appreciation for even having a job; now, a challenge within some organizations is to tame the entitlement mindset that can be underlying in some or what can feel like a full-blown temper tantrum in others. For those who have a flair for the self-absorbed yet are valued individuals you want to put on the path to long-term success, our Embracing the Entitled posting series will help you when creating a cohesive and collaborative workplace environment.
