Businesses spend billions convincing customers their brand is better than the rest. But what about the employee experience of working for the company? How much does your business spend attracting and keeping employees?
When you need to bring in extra staff, how do you create a smooth transition for temporary workers and your existing team? Turns out, you can probably be doing more with more. Here's how.
Image a bad boss you have had in your career, and think about who comes to mind. When you think of this boss, what are some of the common complaints and issues you and other employees had? Did they not listen to suggestions, did they treat their employees poorly, were they micromanagers, or did they just refuse to listen to anyone’s idea but their own?
Starting a new job comes with a multitude of emotions, some good and some bad. Fortunately, the wonders of organization come to the rescue, yet again, as the transition is eased through the 30/60/90-day plan.
Every day, employees make decisions about whether they are willing to go the extra mile in ways that contribute to their organization’s success. These are important decisions because research shows that when employees are willing to go beyond their formal roles by helping out coworkers, volunteering to take on special assignments, introducing new ideas and work practices, attending non-mandatory meetings, putting in extra hours to complete important projects, and so forth, their companies are more efficient and effective.
