Companies around the world mostly care about one thing — profit. Even if they say people are their most important assets, many businesses still put profit over people when things get difficult. We've recently seen massive tech layoffs attributed to the economic downturn, inflation, and overhiring. If people are a company's most important assets, why are they the first to go when times are rough? Employees are the heart of a company. Companies should be serving the people working in them too.
