This article is about condition that usual we face in our environment specially in work field. Whatever our job, we will face it. I started to work in office since eight semesters in bachelor degree. And, my job field was so different with my subject mathematic at bachelor degree. I chose human resources, I handle about salary (payroll), recruitment and compensation&benefit employee. Many things I got from working in office. After I married, I change my job from working in company become a lecturer. I still face about human resources, I teach, train and invite students in diploma or bachelor degree to get more knowledge and use their mind in education field for preparing themselves to be employee.
Work environment is not only inside the company, but also outside the company that always cooperate or related with our company. What did you feel when you enter a new company? How did you get adapt with them? Did they accept you or did they treat you to know that you are feasible or not at there.
Sometime, some company need change their condition by recruiting new people who have new thinking and more innovative than now. But, here occur egotism. In other words, egotism change from old culture into new culture. In this topic we call old people were as senior and new people are as junior. Senior though they must be imitated and not need to be changed because they thought they success and great in their job. And, they force junior to follow them.
Sometime senior feel greater than junior because they have more experience. It is not necessarily, the times always change, the mindset always changing for the better and smarter than before. There are improvements from old condition to new condition. Although junior is younger than senior in age and experiences.
Usually, junior has high motivation and hard thinking to face and do job because they are new in that field and still curious about job and environment. If they are not placed in the right position, they will be influenced by old condition that cannot think forward.
Have you faced this condition that senior feel afraid when junior are in their environment? May they think they will be moved by junior. This may wrong, junior will ask senior to cooperate to pursue company vision that can give goodness and benefit for company and all employee.
More reason why senior are afraid if their company recruit new employee as junior, especially about salary and position or level of job. For example, the past, when senior still new in that company had salary A, but now not like that, new employee get salary more than A. This will make senior feel jealous. This is not fair if they compare past with present because economic factors in past is different from present. And, it is the same as position, last time senior might start from zero to reach current position, but nowadays junior can get chance to get their current position without start from zero. In here appear jealous and may make senior feel not confidence to compete or cooperate with their junior.
This condition like proverb “Like a frog inside a coconut shell”. They feel great in their environment, but they don't know that people outside are greater than them. They feel great in old condition and force new condition to follow them.
We can face this condition in organization. We will worry if this condition became habit and it will be going down to the next generation. Senior is as old employee should guide junior as new employee that will continue their job to the next period. And, junior should respect to their senior. It will be positive things for senior because indirectly junior will promote them and it will be value added them as well. Then, senior will get spirit and motivation and also junior will encourage to do their job.
In exactly we can change our mindset to be positive, senior is not the right one that we always follow, but senior is as expert employee because they work is as their routine. And, junior is new people who don't know more about their environment work, but they want to learn it, junior is smart employee who has been selected by company and will be expert in their job. Junior is an employee who needs to guide and junior is not competitor that will fall down senior. And, of course if senior and junior cooperate each other will have great teamwork and pleasant environment. And, high productivity will easy to get.
