In my workplace, I have decided to introduce computers in a large scale. There are several effects of the decision, but ultimately it will all be beneficial for the company. There will be a number of computers that will be installed in the company. The first impact of installing computers will be the company will become update with all the modern techniques and aspects that were not present in earlier cases. Initially the workings of the company were mainly based on manual labors, and hence in recent times it lacked in production and all other production related aspects. To overcome the problems that appeared with the aspects we have decided to involve in the process. With the introduction of computers in the workplace the first thing will happen will be a thorough training for the workers who are presently working in the company. They will have to understand the working procedures of the computers and how the computers will help them in the final analysis. Computers are very advanced machines, and so they will be real helpful in doing works and doing it more perfectly. So, the mistakes that were common in the manual processes will not happen in computer processes.
There are a number of companies in my knowledge that have lain off a number of workers when they computerized the process. But as per my knowledge I am not going to lay off my workers. I do believe that at a point of time these workers had really worked hard for my company and they do not deserve that decision. But I will see that these workers will be trained in computer technologies and all other aspects that will be introduced in my company. Along with that it is very important to employ some new faces in the process that will be really helpful for the old workers in understanding the computers. It can be mutually beneficial. The new workers will tech the old workers the new working processes while the old workers will mentor the new ones in the complete processes that are going on in the company. This is really good for the future of the company. With the introduction of computers we can also introduce several new processes that were impossible in the older set up, and if properly planned these will be really beneficial and the revenue earnings will go up. As an owner I do believe that computerization of the company is a very good investment and it will have strong returns at a point of time. This is why I have gone ahead with the plan of installing computers throughout every where in the processes. Computerization is the most important part of the modern science and only then our company can compete with all the bigger companies in the World market.
Assessment of Present Condition:
I am presently working with a company which is in the Information Technology sector. The company is a leading name in the IT industry throughout the World and also has presences in several very important countries through out the World. Here I work as a project manager of a certain process which mainly deals with insurances of a company. In college, I have studied to become a system analyst and here in the job I have the opportunity to do what I have been studied in the college. When I just passed out from the college, the recession had just hit our economy and the job market was really bad. But I was really lucky at that point of time and initially got the opportunity to work with the company. The experience has been quite satisfying. There are several causes of getting the job. My academic results were quite good through out my career and it went to my favor. The job can be called as a life saver for me. I had loaned money for completing my college, and after getting the job I am able to pay off my loans in a regular fashion. Along with that I have also rented my own apartment in the city where I now live.
Apart from my developments in the personal field, the job has given me ample opportunities to learn about new things and develop in my field. It is a general saying that one learns the best when he is in a process and I can feel the truth of the sayings to the core. Initially I was recruited as a trainer system analyst. I had joined in an Insurance process and there worked for only two months. These two months can be called as my training period. After that I was transferred to another office where I also trained for some software based services. After six months of training, I was shifted to a different sector where I was given a permanent post. The six months training had been really wonderful for me. I have learned more things in the six months than I have collectively learned in my college. All these things have really helped in my job and I will surely tell about my seniors and mentors who have really helped me in the process.
Another very important aspect of my career choice is that there are a number of options left for me for climbing up the corporate ladder. When I joined the company, I was a trainee system analyst. But after six months I have been promoted to the post of a system engineer and also got a rise in my pay structure. If I can work well and the management is happy with my functioning they can promote me to the post of head system engineer for the process I am working currently.
There are also numerous risks that are involved in the process. I was recruited at the time of an economic meltdown and at that time I have seen that numerous people had been laid off from different sectors. As per the general predictions the meltdown can happen at any time so there will be always a fear of being laid off. To be free from that I have to find out some alternate sources of income so that I keep myself safe from the time. Also the promotions in the company are matters of chance, and in that case it will be important to search for better opportunities that are in the market. Keeping in mind all the aspects I will continue with my present job for the time being.
