The Company Job Balance Sheet

  • Jaime Gil-Aluja
Part of the Applied Optimization book series (APOP, volume 11)


A company, should have a file for every person that works there, explaining their professional abilities; provided that it only includes data concerning the company, in accordance with the government’s laws and regulation, with the transparency and agreement of the representative unions; that is to say in conformity with an “ethic for the activity”. This accounting of abilities does not have as an objective the enclosure of company personnel into the closed shell of administration, but rather to permit them to be conscious of their possibilities of promotion, to participate in a dialogue relative to their permanence, change, evolution of tasks, take their own decisions within a much clearer view of their future. For the company, since activities evolve much faster and all the time even faster, assigning personnel is made much easier with all the essential flexibility and adaptation required. We find the problem of versatility is located here which permits substitutions, being either temporary or not; this is a type of non-specialisation which professor Kaufmann calls “adaptable qualification”. And always in the background, is the fight against arbitrary exploitation, which too many people still practice, as well as all kinds of injustices carried out in the guise of many different colours. Everyone has something to gain from this, provided the necessary interaction between company management and its personnel exists.
