Are You Having Fun? September 19, 2016
I was thinking about work and how sometimes it’s tough to get motivated and other times it’s really easy. I have noticed that I have fun at work when my customers are happy about our service and vice versa.
Here’s the thing: life is too short to work with jerks or people you don’t connect well with. One of my clients told me recently that she wants her people to have fun at work because they spend so much time there. I like that mentality a lot.
I hope you are having fun working and, when you work with TYGES, it is something you look back on as a positive experience. If it is not positive, then let us know. And, if it is positive, then let us know that too.
I received this note a while back in an email from one of our candidates,
“I have worked with a few recruiters and must say that my experience with you and TYGES has been the best.”
Similar to the above I received this note recently from a candidate that we have in process,
“I am impressed with your preparation assistance.”
That’s fun for me. I like the service aspect of what I do and it is a motivator for me.
Frankly, it is amazing to me how poorly many recruiters treat their candidates. I just do not understand it. At TYGES, our process is built around making sure that the customer experience is positive, both on the candidate and the client side. As recruiters, we have to set the tone with the client and the candidate for the relationship and it is in our nature to be impatient for results and answers, but we still need to treat people as we would want to be treated if the roles were reversed.
It’s always a good idea to reflect on your work and “why you work” from time to time. If you’re not having fun at work then maybe it’s time for a change. If you decide that a change is needed or you just want to explore options then call us. Send us your info or check out our list of job openings. I can’t promise we will be able to find you a new career opportunity but I can promise we will try to make the process a positive one.
I welcome your feedback, as well as, any questions or concerns that you may have about your career’s trajectory. I would enjoy helping you as a Career Coach; who knows, perhaps our combined insight will unlock something better for you and your family. You can find me on LinkedIn. Also, you can learn more about TYGES at www.tygesmfg.com, on LinkedIn, or here on our blog.
