What to Do When You’re Newly Hired
As a newly hired employee, what do you need to know in order to succeed and leave a great lasting impression? These tips will help you get started on that very important period of time in your new job. Let’s get started on part two of tips for newly hired employees.
Don’t presume to know it all (learn from others)
Such a mentality will present an attitude of arrogance that others will find most unpleasant. Know how to listen, and how to learn from others. Newly hired employees must show that they have the capacity to be open to instruction.
Don’t participate in the gossip
More than likely, you’ll be drawn into a conversation that involves much mumbling and gossip, but that’s not something you will be associated with! You have integrity and you won’t be apart of that kind of conversation, will you?
Never complain about anything
Complaints are common among a work environment, but you don’t want to be common. You want to show, as a newly hired employee, that you are a hard worker and can overcome obstacles that anyone else would have whined about.
Use compliments every now and then
To make your work environment a more pleasant one, build friendly relationships with your co-workers. Encourage them. Compliment them. Be the newly hired employee that everyone wants to work with.
Always remain positive
This serves as a good reminder to always be upbeat and never be associated with a negative, gloomy attitude. Contrary to today’s culture, enjoy your work! Don’t take for granted the fact that you are a newly hired employee who can work, have a salary, and succeed. Smile, and remember that having a job is a privilege, not a form of slavery.
Respect thy boss and co-workers
Finally, never treat your boss and co-workers like trash. On the contrary, make them feel like you’re a friend that cares about them and that you enjoy being around them. Just think of them as your own friends, not just people that you have to work with to get money. Respect them, and they might also give you that same respect that you want. So take these tips for newly hired employees and actually live them out. You might just find that work isn’t as bad as Hollywood or the news makes it out to be.
