Working in a toxic environment or for a company that is not ‘doing the right thing’ can create tension and conflict. If your values are not aligned with your employer’s values, it’s time to move on. First of all, you will never get intrinsic motivation from your current role. Secondly, you will not progress your career, as people at your company can feel your ‘inner-conflict’.
Never ever compromise on your values. Nothing good will come from it. If you feel the values and policies of your workplace are wrong: move on.
Again, quitting your job is a big decision and it’s important to carefully consider all of your options before making a move. But if you’re feeling unhappy and unfulfilled in your current position, it might be worth considering whether it’s time to quit your job and move on to something that brings you more fulfillment and satisfaction. Remember, it’s okay to put yourself first and prioritise your happiness. If quitting your job is the best decision for you, don’t be afraid to make the leap.
By reflecting on your goals and values, networking and seeking out new opportunities, seeking additional training or education, considering a change in industry or job function, and finding a mentor or professional development resources, you can take control of your career and chart a new course for success.
