Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and this time of year draws focus on the significant relationships we have with the people in our lives. Whether this be a partner, a friend or a family member but let’s try not to forget the other love in your life… your job!
We spend most our waking hours at work slaving away trying to provide for ourselves and those around us but what if your job was more than just something you do to pay the bills. Do you live for the weekend? Spend your days watching the clock waiting for the day to be over? What if I told you it didn’t have to be like that! If you’re doing either one of those things then you’re doing it wrong! I know it must sound crazy right, that there are actually people who enjoy what they do.
With thousands of different industries and endless possible roles you could choose to tackle how do you know you’ve chosen the right one? What you’re probably actually thinking is “are the rhetorical questions ever going to stop?” Think about it. Take a moment to sit back this Valentine’s day and evaluate the relationship status of your current work situation. Whether it be that you’re single, in a relationship, engaged, married, in an open relationship or it may even be ‘complicated’.
Taking this into consideration, how nice is it knowing you love your job. There are many factors that influence how you feel about your job and what this means on a day to day basis.
Working within a company that fits you is key! The company culture of a business needs to suit you in order for you to be able to succeed from within. This is more than just what the company values state as of course as an employee you must embody these in everything you do but this also takes into account the environment you are working in.
Working in an environment where you are socially involved is important to your emotional wellbeing at work and this translates into motivation and helps you progress within a business. For example, here at Swanstaff we take great pride in being a company that’s works hard to play hard. We are constantly promoting the exciting culture that we embrace with open arms. Being a Swanstaff employee (or a swan as we like to say) means you get involved in regular social activities as our productivity thrives from a culture of inclusion, fun and participation from all staff at events. Remember that you are a representation of the company your work for.
You do your best work when you are invested and doing something that makes you happy, your job role should fill you with pride. Productivity levels increase when you are in a role that you love and if you’re a driven individual who is looking to achieve the best out of any opportunity placed in front of you then you should want this!
Starting to get the picture as to why it's important to love your job? Maybe you think you have what it takes to make it as a Swan?
Remember, if you do a job you love you’ll never have a problem with Mondays again!
