In today’s turbulent economic environment, it is no surprise that many companies are restructuring, once in a while. Jobs are being outsourced to places where doing business and getting work done is cheaper. Having said that, those who are in the employment line never have a safe job- because they can be replaced at any moment.
But is this really the case? Well, at least, not for everyone! Have you ever noticed that some people are just irreplaceable? They don’t fear of being demoted, fired, or replaced because they know just how valuable they are. These people become restructure-proof for a reason. But what makes them indispensible? Are there ways in which you can make yourself an important asset to your company? Ways in which you can ensure that you remain in the company no matter what happens? Here are ways through which you can make yourself indispensable at work!

Connecting with different types of people can take you a long way- you can learn to adjust to different personalities, you’ll be more flexible, and you can acquire skills that are necessary to survive any types of social environment. Let the negative people motivate you into becoming better and let them be a reminder of the person you don’t want to be. And, let the positive ones inspire you to become the best person that you can be!
