As Unemployment Continues to Rise, Profiles International Encourages Employers and Employees to Focus on Value

Profiles International encourages those who still hold employment to persevere in this difficult job market. Profiles International suggests that employees who strive for excellence stand a better chance at surviving in the workforce.

Austin, TX (PRWEB) October 14, 2009 -- Profiles International, a developer of employee assessments and talent management solutions, encourages those who still hold employment to persevere in this difficult job market. Profiles International suggests that employees who strive for excellence stand a better chance at surviving in the workforce.

“The current corporate environment might cause employers and employees to think that cutting corners is the only option,” says Dario Priolo, Director of the Profiles Research Institute. “This is not the case. Now, more than ever before, employers must reinvent the way they do business in order to stay profitable, and employees must reinvent themselves in order to stay employed.”

This week former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan predicted the unemployment rate of U.S. citizens, currently at 9.8 percent, is "going to penetrate the 10 percent barrier before heading down.” Despite the discouraging figures, there is hope. The Harvard Business blog recently published an article by Umair Haque titled “The Awesomeness Manifesto.” Jim Sirbasku, CEO of Profiles International says, “Mr. Haque’s article is the most brilliant business advice I’ve read in a long time. His article inspired us to apply his four tenets to the employee. It doesn’t seem like there is enough literature available to employees that encourages them to view being a great employee as a virtue. As a veteran of the human capital industry, I can say confidently that if more individuals adopted these tenets, the corporation as a whole would naturally improve.”

The four tenets found in “The Awesomeness Manifesto,” when applied to the individual employee encourage the person to be ethical when producing, create excellent ideas or products, love what they do and offer meaningful value to their employers. Profiles International has applied this concept directly to employees as a motivational tool called "Become an Employee of Awesomeness" to regenerate what the economy has depressed: the opportunistic spirit.
