The Pros and Cons of Recruiting: 5 Things HR Should Remember When Hiring New Employees
I know you still have a hangover over the New Year celebration and couldn’t find any motivation to go back to work. I mean it’s been a week now and you should start executing your biggest plans for this year. And if you are still can’t get enough of the unrelated things to work then you should condition yourself into thinking that you might lose your job sooner or later. To avoid that, here are some Tips or shall we say guide for you to get motivated this 2019:
Tip 1: Dress up cool
Go to your work as the best you, by doing so, bring out the best attire you could possibly wear, I’m talking about the casual and professional outfits, and dress up as if you are welcoming the year with a positive aura and outlook. For example, the best trend forecasted for this year is bright pastel colors, for women, you can match pastel blouse to your silky-shiny pants and have that classic wedge sandal for an edgy look, whereas for men, guys can go for a cool button down polo coupled with a patterned necktie, have that navy blue or grey color for pants and dark brown leather shoes or loafer for a nice get up.
What’s more, with fashion, be the reflection of what you wear. Be bold and established an unstoppable force that you can only execute. Great way to show confidence and willingness to do your job excellently. Your boss will think that you’re taking your work seriously on a different level.
Tip 2: Set up your goals
This is a bit common and far too fetched but it works so much (well at least for me). Setting up your goals at the beginning of the year is a good attitude to consider. I know some of the goals are not always going to achieve because you are too exhausted for them to attain.
Now here’s a tip, set goals quarterly, this way you will be able to focus only on stuff that needs to be done within the 3 month period. Make it achievable and lastly, do not forget to make a checklist to keep on track on the process of achieving those golden apples.
Tip 3: Improve yourself by socializing
Socializing is one of the best ways to learn and discover new ideas by taking part in dialogues of a magnificent pool of people. There’s nothing wrong with having a good relationship with people that you see yourself gaining benefits for personal growth, or maybe have a conversation with your workmates and talk about positive things, or grab a cup of coffee with your supervisor and just try to learn new things, garner ideas or know something that you don’t have any idea about in casual talk.
Life is always lifelong learning, so not limiting yourself into something that can greatly benefit both you and the organization can be one way to be motivated.
