“Job Comfort” … these two words are rarely put together… but for this month’s Inspiring Innovations LEARNING MOMENTS podcast they are a perfect fit. I believe being comfortable in your job is critical and often builds extra productivity! However, becoming too comfortable and taking job expectations and responsibilities for granted… goes against everything you promised when you applied for and were given the job. Also, employers need to strategically encourage job creativity to curb the negative side of “Job Comfort”.
