The Entrepreneur’s Source Reviews How to Overcome Battered Career Syndrome
For many Americans, thinking about retirement instills a sense of anxiety. According to a study by Wells Fargo, nearly half (48 percent) of middle class Americans in their 50s report that they don’t believe they have enough money to “survive” once retired. Similarly, a surprising 19 percent of these respondents report having saved no money for retirement at all.
Due to this issue and the constantly changing American economy, workplace satisfaction surveys point an even glummer employment picture, translating into an epidemic of Battered Career Syndrome. Today, The Entrepreneur’s Source reviews Battered Career Syndrome and how Americans can overcome it through franchise ownership.
What is Battered Career Syndrome?
Individuals who face Battered Career Syndrome face little to no job security and high employee turnover. Many of these people have been through two, three, or four jobs within just a short period of time, while others have been out of a job for six months or longer. Because these individuals have been out of work for extensive time or have bounced from position to position, it has become increasingly harder for them to find opportunities.
Founder of The Entrepreneurs Source Terry Powell explains that Battered Career Syndrome is a common reality for many American employees.
“Battered Career Syndrome means being subjected to the frustration of turning to the next career path in the company you work for, and then being downsized, right sized or let go, and then having to start over again,” said The Entrepreneur’s Source Terry Powell. “It is when you find out your job has been outsourced, disappeared, or that the company has cut back. Battered Career Syndrome is something that exists in a very large percentage of employment situations today.”
Although the American economy and job market may be forever changed and although Battered Career Syndrome paints a gloomy picture for the future of American employment, there is a way to overcome it: Franchise ownership.
The Battered Career Syndrome Solution: Franchise Ownership
The New Career Economy has been a progression over several years, and has not only created a change in the job market, but also in the way people are reacting to it. For those individuals suffering from Battered Career Syndrome and have had enough with The New Career Economy, then franchise ownership may be a viable solution.
Franchise ownership allows individuals to become self-sufficient and to move away from depending on the job market for employment and career satisfaction. When an individual decides to invest in a franchise opportunity, then they are choosing to step up and take control of their professional calling. Rather than having someone dictate their professional future, they are taking a hold of it themselves.
