Maybe my perspective will change later in my career,
But surely meaningful contributions can come from anywhere?
And don’t we want to create organizations where the best ideas win?
Why then are we rewarding people for simply sticking around?
indeed, loyalty is valuable.
But so is creativity.
Heck, even competency.
Here in Southern Africa,
Seniority has led to a lot of power being used
To maintain the status quo
As opposed to using that power to solve problems
And push our people forward.
We need to do better.
