A for-profit company needs the human glue (until it doesn’t)

Every for-profit company aims for profit but needs glue so people stick to the company. At each point of contact, there is glue, whether it’s a flesh-and-bones employee or a system that emulates an employee.
 
Keep in mind: If a for-profit could make the same amount of money without human employees, it would do so. Get used to the idea that if such a company can replace you, it will replace you.
 
A company is not its boss. A company is its own system that (if for-profit) lives from profit. If a sub-system can feed the company at the same profit level as an employee, you will be replaced by this sub-system.
