Declares that, although employees and employers used to have a work relationship, with regard to mutual interest and lifetime employment through good performance and loyalty, this idea was abandoned by employers in the 1980s as they tried to limit job security expectations. Lists 8 points that have eroded traditional employment, discussing them in full. States the effects of change have affected employment relationships in larger companies and these are: the change in employment security; contingent workers and contracting out; the way work is organized; and training. Sums up that workers no longer see employers as responsible for their employability and now take that responsibility on themselves.
