Wow it has been so busy here at aka recruitment and as one of our mottos is “work hard play hard” we are just back from a wonderful sunshine break to Portugal – It is always great to get away and have time to reflect on life and what changes need to be made if you don’t feel you have the balance right.
Many job hunters seek alternative employment not because of the money or the fact that they don’t love the job it is because they don’t feel that their hard work is appreciated. It doesn’t cost anything to say thank you to your employees if it is validated for their efforts. If they work over, if busy or cover for holidays, never take sick days and do over and above the call of duty – remember a few kind words can make a big difference.
If you work somewhere and feel underappreciated, make sure you speak to your line manager when you have your annual appraisal as they may not be aware that they are not communicating their appreciation of you. So many people leave it too late to start job hunting without even giving their current employer the chance to rectify the situation.
Sadly 75% of people are afraid to believe in themselves and don’t want to risk a new challenge or change in career direction. I think about Leicester City and this time last year they were almost relegated a laughing stock and now they are the winners of the Premier Division. So many of their fans didn’t just give up and chose another team they placed a £10 bet and won £10000. We are at work such a huge part of our lives it is important that we enjoy our work – if you feel that you are in a rut – speak to one of our career consultants here at aka we won’t just find you any job we promise to listen to your requirements and match you up accordingly.
