How to Succeed on Your Assignment with Integrity Staffing

  • how to succeed 950x560

 

Congratulations, you've been placed on assignment! To help you start off on the right foot, here are some great tips from our supervisors as well as associates like you.

 

Ask away.

There's no such thing as a stupid question. As a new team member, you will have a lot of information thrown at you very fast. Don't hesitate to speak up if you need something explained or repeated. Team members and leaders will be delighted to help, because when you succeed at your new tasks you make them look good too.

 

Aim to arrive early.

If you give yourself only the minimum amount of time to get to work, the least little thing that goes wrong will make you late. One associate we know goes by the clock on her kitchen wall which is set 10 minutes fast. She says this saves her from having to calculate extra time allowances.

 

Have a transportation backup plan ... or two.

Cars can refuse to start. Carpool buddies can let you down. Don't wait until you're in panic mode to come up with an emergency plan, such as a current bus schedule or Uber's phone number.

 

Put comfort before beauty.

Nothing drains your energy like being uncomfortable while working, especially if your job is physically demanding. Top priority is comfortable shoes. Many of our warehouse associates swear by athletic shoes engineered for walking, with gel insoles added for extra cushioning.

 

Make friends.

The people you work with can be a fantastic support system, not only in showing you the ropes but in helping out when the going gets tough. Just make sure the friendship is a two-way street by offering help as often as you receive it.

 

Respond positively to feedback.

Most companies and team leaders have procedures in place to periodically let you know how you're performing. Whatever they say, good or bad, respond that you will try (even more) to up your game. This can-do attitude makes a great impression. Plus, it just might inspire you to exceed your own expectations!

The Importance of Diversity in the Workplace
    In this era of globalization, workforce diversity is not just a fact of life, it's a business goal which can deliver real benefits. Here are our top 5 reasons why we believe that hiring policy should include individuals of all ethnicities, cultures, genders and sexual orientations.   1. Increased innovation and problem solving ability. Studies have shown that diverse groups come up with solutions to challenges faster than homogenous ones. A variety of backgrounds brings in a wider range of ideas, knowledge banks and approaches to choose from, or meld into a unique process or strategy.   2. Increased customer approval. Diversity-oriented organizations can offer more and better solutions to their customers; and may attract new business on the basis of having people on staff who can interact easily with the customer.   3. Expanded language skills. Related to point 2 above, international businesses will benefit from being able to speak the same language and...

Advantages of a Workplace Mentor
  Nearly all highly successful professionals say they couldn't have gotten where they are now without having a mentor in the early stages of their career. Developing a relationship with a more experienced colleague can smooth your path toward your career goals in many ways. Here are just a few of them:   1. Clues you in to the office culture. Someone who's worked there a while can tell you who really gets things done, who's in which clique, and what unwritten rules you'll be expected to play by. Insights into personalities can help you deal strategically with the individuals who will influence your job success.   2. Helps you be heard. Newbies often are afraid to speak up, or don't know how to make their point without making enemies. Plus, the mentor's position within the company can give you a powerful supporting voice if you need one.   3. Helps you listen. Being able to accept feedback, and act on it, will be crucial to your career (and personal) growth; yet it's one...
