What are the 3 most important things to keep you in a job?

Do you want an employer to keep you or for you to keep your job?

I will answer your question both ways.

For an employer to retain me, three things would be to treat me with respect, treat me fairly, and pay me fairly. The first two things are self explanatory. For payment, I am not necessarily asking to be overpaid, although it would be nice if the employer did. I am definitely asking that they not pay me badly, at least according to the market. At least pay me the market.

To keep the job, I need to produce quality work. I need to be available, which means I should take as few sick days as possible and even

At least pay me the market.

To keep the job, I need to produce quality work. I need to be available, which means I should take as few sick days as possible and even find excuses to come even if I'm sick. Also be reasonably available to work overtime, weekends, and holidays without being taken advantage of or otherwise exploited by the employer. I need to show loyalty to the employer, even if I feel that the employer neither appreciates my loyalty nor would not acknowledge loyalty if I hit you on the head.

  1. Love your job: Once you start feeling passionate about your job, it will be very difficult to find any reason not to stick with that job.
  2. Be unique: you must always have an impact, give something special that others cannot, make sure everyone knows that the presentation is very important, as an adult you are what the world sees you, you must make yourself irreplaceable.
  3. Play well: it is very important to play well with your teammates and also with your superiors and juniors. Your relationships at work can shape your entire life. You don't have to be a bootlicker, but don't be a rebel without a cause, either.
  1. Get to work on time, leave on time, and follow the instructions of your supervisors.
  2. Do a good job and don't use your personal cell phone during work hours unless it is an emergency. If it has to be used, leave the building momentarily to use it.
  3. Do not use the company computer for personal business or mail, etc.

First of all, I'd have to be doing something creative (artistic license), flexible hours (I can't be a slave to the clock), and a living wage. As an inspirational artist and theoretical thinker, I would not have time to worry about my health, I would not have time to constantly scrutinize all the foods I would eat and the products I would consume. If what I need is there, I can find it… but if I have to go looking for every little thing, I would not have time to be creative.

In my fictitious company, the first three on the list would be

  1. Confidence
  2. Competence
  3. Efficiency

Naming three things is very arbitrary, since what work means to each person is different and you must decide what it means to you. There may be a reason, there may be 10 reasons, and it's okay as long as they are yours.

For me personally, and I've had 9 jobs since I graduated from school for the past 19 years, what I found to keep me in a job are:

  1. People: I need to feel connected and trust the people I work with for basic satisfaction. The job I've had the longest so far was five years and it was mainly because I was working with a group of people who share common goals and objectives.

  1. People: I need to feel connected and trust the people I work with for basic satisfaction. The job I've had the longest so far was five years and it was mainly because I was working with a group of people who share common goals and completely trust each other.
  2. Alignment of the objectives of the company and the objectives of my personal life. What is the company looking for and is it well aligned with what I consider important? I wouldn't work for the tobacco companies, because I don't want to contribute to human suffering, for example. I want to work in technology companies because I am excited about the potential future they can bring us, etc.
  3. Culture. Which behaviors and attributes are praised and which are discouraged in a company and why. How does culture help people get the company where it needs to be? Netflix, for example, does a lot of things differently than other tech companies in Silicon Valley. His culture deck has been viewed millions of times online, and it fairly accurately describes what is happening in the company. Its culture drives Netflix to be an incredibly efficient business machine that thrives in a rapidly changing environment like the streaming business it is in.
  4. Increase. What will I learn in this job? Will I improve in my craft? Will I be more efficient in communicating with people? Will I know better how to drive the changes that I consider important for the company?

Other factors such as salary, travel distance, office benefits and perks, etc. are also important, but as long as they are not too drastic a deviation from the norm, as long as the top 4 are satisfied, I can find ways to manage rest.

There are many reasons that employers struggle to find good qualified employees, some are based on business type and field, while others are more universal. I will mention a few reasons that, I think, have a great impact on these companies.

  • Loyalty - Employees and employers are no longer loyal to each other. The blame lies primarily with employers, who, years ago, decided that employees were expendable and would fire some while forcing the remainder to do the extra work. Loyalty is a two-way street and employees soon changed their minds. Employees now move hoop

There are many reasons that employers struggle to find good qualified employees, some are based on business type and field, while others are more universal. I will mention a few reasons that, I think, have a great impact on these companies.

  • Loyalty - Employees and employers are no longer loyal to each other. The blame lies primarily with employers, who, years ago, decided that employees were expendable and would fire some while forcing the remainder to do the extra work. Loyalty is a two-way street and employees soon changed their minds. Employees are now on the move a lot more, creating vacancies that can be difficult to fill.
  • Hiring process
    1. Reliance on a computer program to screen candidates, which also eliminates many of the qualified candidates.
      1. Leave a smaller pool of candidates, qualified and unskilled.
      2. Some of the remaining candidates are really good at filling out their resumes, but they are not qualified.
      3. Some of these online application processes are simply painful and qualified candidates give up or simply decline consideration from that company.
      4. This research process overlooks many of the social skills that are essential to getting the job done.
    2. HR recruiters with little experience and knowledge of the position make initial hiring decisions.
    3. Job descriptions with requirements that are not necessary to perform the job. This further narrows the field of potential candidates.
    4. Poor skills to interview the employer.
      1. Unprepared
      2. Asking irrelevant questions
      3. Poor treatment of perspective - conflicting experience
      4. Not realizing the interview is a two-way process: don't sell the position and the company.
      5. Offering a compensation package well below market value.
      6. Poor candidate selection leading to poor performance and high turnover.
      7. The above are just examples of poor employer interview skills.
  • Bad management and working conditions (culture)
    1. Managers who are bullies and are responsible for good employees leaving the company.
    2. Little or no positive feedback - an abundance of negative feedback. Unfair performance reviews and salary adjustments
    3. Unrealistic expectations
    4. Poor work-life balance
    5. Toxic work environment

Many of the companies that have a hard time finding good qualified employees have high turnover. Instead of researching and finding the remedy, they continue to rely on the hiring process that is disruptive to the business and very costly.

Some of these companies develop a bad reputation that discourages candidates from applying there.

A job that keeps me uncomfortable in my seat, moving every second, and connected to people by helping them is also a very important aspect of a job for me. As a Warehouse Manager, I not only keep track of goods / logistics imports and exports, but I also get up from my seat whenever a new task comes up, a new problem arises. A job that forces me to push myself is simply the job that I am satisfied with. I feel like a few years ago I asked God for a job where I feel challenged every day and learn things that I could never learn if I liked something. Growth, stability, consis

A job that keeps me uncomfortable in my seat, moving every second, and connected to people by helping them is also a very important aspect of a job for me. As a Warehouse Manager, I not only keep track of goods / logistics imports and exports, but also get out of my seat whenever a new task comes up, a new problem comes up. A job that forces me to push myself is simply the job that I am satisfied with. I feel like a few years ago I asked God for a job where I feel challenged every day and learn things that I could never learn if I liked something. Growth, stability, consistency are the 3 keys that a job must have. I think if you don't like a job you should keep doing it until you stop complaining, that's where you change and grow as a human being. You adapt and accept. You grow. The most important aspect of a job is to keep you thinking and moving into the next day. It is not a job, it is a process. You go on and on. So if you feel tired, take a break, but don't quit your job because you don't like it, "That's the most crucial period of your job where your individual growth awaits."

  • Asleep now, excited to wake up for my 12 hour job as a warehouse manager at Radha Exports.
  • No alarms needed, My Passion will wake me up.
  • It keeps an alarm because I can't afford to be late xD.

Someone told me to enjoy my job and since then I have been looking for new perspectives.

I hope you liked my answer and perspective, Do Upvote. Thanks ;)

A) No Neil

Neil was bald-headed, short, and wore a Subway T-shirt. He walked over to the table. He introduced himself and sat down.

Why do you want this job?

I spoke.

I need a part time job while I am in college.

He knew it. I didn't care about work. He needed cash. I told.

I'm focused on my studies, so I'll do whatever it takes when I'm here, but I'm not looking for anything long-term.

Neil spoke.

Yes, Tim goes to college and works Wednesday through Saturday. How is your schedule? We could do something similar.

I told him about my classes.

Two days later, I was watching the instr.

He knew it. I didn't care about work. He needed cash. I told.

I'm focused on my studies, so I'll do whatever it takes when I'm here, but I'm not looking for anything long-term.

Neil spoke.

Yes, Tim goes to college and works Wednesday through Saturday. How is your schedule? We could do something similar.

I told him about my classes.

Two days later, I was looking at instructions on how to make different sandwiches. Someone would come and order an Italian BLT. I didn't even know what BLT stood for. I looked at the photos and copied them. Four pieces of salami, four pieces of the other. What cheese would you like? Then we would make the salads and wrap it.

Stinked wrap. Half the time, the wrapper got into the sandwich and the salad went everywhere.

Some more and I picked it up. I started to know the menu by heart, I didn't even need the photos. He wasn't the best sandwich artist, but he could operate the cash register without giving the wrong change. The important thing.

It was time for the exam. He needed a couple of days off. I told Neil when he hired me that I would not be available during exam week.

I called Neil to remind him.

Hi Neil, exams are coming up, I won't be available for next Monday or Tuesday.

Neil was quiet.

Neil?

Speak.

Who is going to cover you?

I'm not sure. Could you ask the others?

Do that.

Well.

Neil hung up. I sent a text message to the others. Tim was busy. Sandra couldn't either.

I called Neil back.

Hi Neil, Tim and Sandra are not available.

Neil started to speak.

Well, if you don't have an answer, you'll have to go inside.

I have an exam.

Then? It is scheduled to work.

Once the exam is over, I can go inside.

That's not good enough.

Neil hung up.

That was the last time I spoke to him. I had shifts scheduled for the days after my exams, but I didn't bother to show up.

Making sandwiches was what it was. Work is always what it is. But people are what you remember.

Neil taught me a valuable lesson.

The kind of person I don't want to work for.

B) Compensation

I hate driving but I love people.

I signed up for Uber while studying at home.

The routine was, study Monday through Friday, drive Friday night, Saturday night and Sunday, repeat.

Friday and Saturday nights were the biggest.

A group of girls got into the car.

The one in the front seat starts talking.

What are you doing driving Uber?

Why?

You are too hot to drive Uber.

Thanks.

A new passenger every 10 minutes. You would listen to all the stories. And I would get to practice mine. I met Cameron, the guy who went blind and later regained his sight, so he decided to start a company to help people who were recovering from a disability. Steve had jumped out of a plane 23 times, 9 of them drunk.

Meeting people was compensation for driving late into the night with little pay.

Before looking for a new role, I think about compensation.

What current lifestyle am I giving up for this new one? It's worth it?

C) The belief

Nick started to speak.

Do you think you can do it?

I spoke.

It will be hard.

I believe you can.

Nick was good like that. He believed in others when they had trouble believing in themselves. That's the kind of boss you want.

D) The best in the world

Neither title suits me. I like to learn things and I like to create things. Being in one position too long drains my energy.

I am very frank, which means my thoughts wander, everything is brilliant, each new thing is more exciting than the last.

I thought the best job for me to somehow take advantage of this. To combine what I learned from A, B, and C.

Avoid Neil's, do something with people and not cars, and have faith. The kind of belief Nick would give. If he could do that, he would be the best in the world. So I did it.

How?

You create your own work. With which no one can compete with you. You are you You are the best in the world to be yourself.

Internet allows it. Find what excites you and share your enthusiasm online.

It will work?

No guarantees. But it's better than dealing with Neil's.

A job can be your first or your next, there are things you always want to have when you are working. For newbies, they are always dreaming big (money). They want to work in a cool workplace where the casuals are allowed, a brand for LinkedIn, and a better salary from fellow rookies.

For a beginner who doesn't understand job profile, travel issues, office politics, culture, and other things, salary and a beautiful office is the combination of your dreams for any job. For an experienced person, things change.

They see themselves with a better position, a management profile, a better salary, and a bigger brand. T

A job can be your first or your next, there are things you always want to have when you are working. For newbies, they are always dreaming big (money). They want to work in a cool workplace where the casuals are allowed, a brand for LinkedIn, and a better salary from fellow rookies.

For a beginner who doesn't understand job profile, travel issues, office politics, culture, and other things, salary and a beautiful office is the combination of your dreams for any job. For an experienced person, things change.

They see themselves with a better position, a management profile, a better salary, and a bigger brand. The idea of ​​an ideal and satisfying job changes when you change jobs. While each employee has their own aspirations for the job, they may or may not realize that there are only three things they always need (if they are not seen right now) in a workplace:

1.Opportunity

The freshest / beginner level is the level where candidates need opportunities to explore, grow, improve, and learn new things. Just because you are inexperienced does not mean that you cannot understand or value the responsibilities and opportunities to grow in your career. Women often work to present the right opportunities so that they can show society their worth. Not just women, but anyone who has never had a chance to tell the world about their capabilities is always looking for interesting profiles and companies that can offer them challenging jobs that satisfy their willingness to set a standard. Equal employment opportunities,

2.Thank you-

If you ask employees who work in a company, who strive and point to the results of their work what they would want in return, they would say "thank you" first. There are numerous companies large and small that don't really appreciate what their employees do is simply add more work to their list. Any employee can happily add tasks to the existing list as long as what they have done is acknowledged with a pat on the back. There are bosses who think that the appraisal is enough to keep employees motivated. Waiting all year to get the appraisal with no words of thanks makes that increase in salary less important and less motivating.

Balance between personal and work life

Especially with the introduction of coworking spaces, employees are looking for flexibility in working hours everywhere. It is said and observed that strict hours affect productivity. Some people are more active at night and others in the morning. There may also be other reasons such as health, delays, and other personal issues that make it difficult for employees to deal with strict schedules. Flexible work schedules, telecommuting opportunities (work from home), and supportive decisions make employees stay long and respect the company. Understanding the lives or the personnel must be in the values ​​of the companies.

These three are the factors that any company should consider for its employees and none of them would cost them anything extra. The three previous points must be in the values ​​of the employer and the company that they start so that, if it is not a great salary, the employees have at least their share of motivation that they deserve in the face of the efforts they put in.

By hosting employee empowerment sessions and events and inspirational programs, you can boost your personality by giving them more reasons to stay with an employer who cares about them. Please let us know if you agree with us that there are 3 main points you are looking for or is there something we missed!

I had to disconnect my mother's life support and watch her die for the next several hours.

My mom was a super strong single mother who raised two children almost entirely on her own. She sacrificed everything so that my brother and I could have a better life. The morning my second son was born, he was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.

My wife had a planned caesarean section (she had one with our previous son and the second was big and a week late so they scheduled it for 41 weeks) and we were in the waiting room, both dressed, my wife laying on the bed getting ready to enter. My mother had been h

I had to disconnect my mother's life support and watch her die for the next several hours.

My mom was a super strong single mother who raised two children almost entirely on her own. She sacrificed everything so that my brother and I could have a better life. The morning my second son was born, he was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.

My wife had a planned caesarean section (she had one with our previous son and the second was big and a week late so they scheduled it for 41 weeks) and we were in the waiting room, both dressed, my wife lying on the bed was getting ready to go to sleep. My mother had had some stomach problems and we knew she had been to the doctors for the past few days, but she didn't tell us anything because she wanted us to enjoy the birth of our son. second son. The doctors told us that my wife would be waiting another 20 minutes and we hadn't heard from my mom that day, which was weird, so we decided to call her. I could tell there was something wrong with his voice, but he said nothing was wrong and that we could talk later. I wish I hadn't, but I kept pressing for an answer. She told me she was diagnosed with cancer and I lobbied for the guy and she told me.

For those of you unfamiliar with pancreatic cancer, it is one of the few diagnoses that you really don't want to receive. You don't want to know you have cancer, but you really don't want the doctor to tell you that it is pancreatic cancer. The survivor stats are horrible - it's basically a death sentence.

So when we brought our son home, my mom moved in with us. I thank the gray bearded in the sky for my wife because she was super strong, taking care of a newborn and my mom because I had to go back to work after a couple of weeks. I spent half my time taking her to and from the oncologist, but the cancer was too advanced to really fight it.

In the course of less than two months, we watched my strong mother go downhill rapidly. Things you don't want to happen to someone you love. Inability to eat, lose control of your intestines, vomit, live in pain, and cope with your own mortality. A few months before this everything was fine and now he was more screwed up than we could have imagined then.

After a round of chemotherapy, she became extremely constipated, so the doctors told us to give her a strong laxative. She took it and the next morning she was so dehydrated that she hardly responded. We rushed her to the hospital where she was admitted to the ICU. She seemed to be improving a bit and we were at least hoping to take her home and receive hospice care. My brother and I spent most of our time in the hospital with her and occasionally went to work (luckily we both worked a few blocks from the hospital in town). Early one morning I got a call from the hospital saying that my mom went downhill quickly during the night. They think she may have had a stroke, but they didn't want to do more tests unnecessarily and put her in more discomfort.

I ran to the hospital and there I met my brother. The ICU doctors told us directly what the situation was, as we had asked them to tell us the first time we met them. It was not good. There was very little chance that he would return, but his original oncologist, whom we had not seen since he was admitted, came from another part of the hospital. He tried to tell us that we should fight, take her home, and let her die there. It sucked, so we asked the treating ICU doctor to speak up and let us know if the oncologist was right. He brought his entire team together and we had a meeting. He didn't want to directly contradict a colleague, but he practically told us that our mother was not going to wake up. I asked him what he would do if he was his mother

We had called close friends and family to say goodbye. Later in the afternoon, doctors and hospital administrators came up and asked us to sign the paperwork to shut down the machines. As an older brother, I didn't want my more sensitive younger brother to have to think that he was the one who should sign something like this, so weeks before I took over. I signed the paperwork and went back to the room. They turned everything off and over the course of the next hour or two we saw his breathing and heart rate slow down. We said goodbye and watched her take her last breath.

That was the hardest decision I had to make in my life. I hope I never have to do something like that again.

Hello there,

You asked: What are the most important things you do when you start a new job?

These are my tips on what not to do, just as important as the tips on what to do ...

How to settle into a new job well -

9 unpleasant things you should never do

1: criticize anything

Lack of technology or resources, lack of perks, noise level, excessive number of meetings, obstacles you have to overcome to get things done ... there may be many things that you dislike.

Take my advice: don't criticize. Learn to bite your tongue.

To resist. You have many avenues (such as online forums) to channel your inner critic. A new job is not one of them.

2: Complain about anything

Do not complain about anything or anyone - even your commute. Once you have established your value, you can do that. But why would you do that even then?

Develop the good habit of being a non-complainer. And stick with it.

3: Compare Your Present Company With Your Last Company

“In my last company we used to…blah….blah…blah”. Don’t do that.

Don’t make comparisons between your current company and your previous company.

Your peers at your new company might not come right out and say it. But what they will think is, “Why didn’t he just stay in that job – if it was so great?”

4: Boast About How Good You Are

Confidence does not need to be trumpeted. You may be tempted to boast about how good you are. Do not do it. Instead let your work speak for you.

If you are good at what you do, and you have a great work ethic, it will be noticed.

People will say, “What a great work ethic”, “Wow she has such a strong grasp of this”.

You don’t need to toot your own horn as if you are part of the San Jose Symphony.

5: Refuse To Do Anything

Don’t say “I don’t do that” or “I can't do that.” It may be off-putting to discover, you have to take care of some low-level, time-consuming, tedious and professionally non-valuable tasks. You should never outright refuse to do them. Your predecessor may have been doing them. There will come a time – after you have established your value – when you will be able to speak up, and get those tasks switched.

6: Be Unapproachable

Don’t make it such that people can’t approach you. Don't start telling them off if they interrupt you, disturb you, want to engage in a friendly conversation with you, or ask you something for the umpteenth time. The only people who have a right to be unapproachable are geniuses. So unless you’ve been told again and again you are a genius, I would work on being as approachable as you can. Patience will go much further than you ever dreamed of…I guarantee you that.

7: Hold Your Tricks To Yourself And Be Unwilling To Help Team Members

Life is not a zero-sum game.

By helping others, you win. And the person you help wins. Don’t resist sharing your expertise.

More importantly, don’t resent sharing your expertise.

Become known as the “go to” person, the one with the expertise.

Don’t let your mind spin on things like “Oh, she shouldn’t be asking me this – she is in a senior position – she should already know this”. Steer away from those thoughts.

Be happy to be the go to person, the super user, and the one who people turn to. It’s better to be ahead, rather than behind.

It establishes you as being an authority.

And that my friend is

an opportunity, not a liability.

8: Cause A Nuisance To Any Of The People Who Sit Around You

Some obvious things to avoid - being loud, being obnoxious, taking people’s stuff without asking them, leaving dirty plates around. Be sensitive to the needs of the people around you. It will serve you well.

9: Have Long Lunches And Leave Early

Taking long lunch breaks, leaving office early, taking time off, being late to meetings, and such - these are things to do only after you prove your value. This should be obvious to most of you, but it helps to restate it.

That wraps up the 9 off-putting things you should never do - if you want to settle into a new job fast and well.

So tell me - how do you stack up?
