How to adapt to the new place of work? Present
, you found work! Relatives and acquaintances congratulate you, you sighed with relief, all painful searches behind, now it is necessary just to accustom on the new place of work.
But, unfortunately, for many such simple business is absolutely difficult. Often to me the applicants who did not pass a three-months trial period come. Or they were disappointed in the company, or something did not develop at them on the new place and they had to leave the new employer. As the reasons many call ignorance so-called “ undercurrents “ and unspoken rules of the new company. For example, in the company it is accepted that nobody leaves before the management. And therefore when the administration is late after the termination of the regulated working day, with it also all his subordinates are late. Thus, about any fixed working hours there is no speech also. Respectively, it can not suit the beginner.
Such unpleasant surprises can be avoided if during final interview to find out for itself from the head that it is accepted in the company, what corporate style at the company and that expect from the candidate. Also it is necessary to learn for what reasons vacancy appeared and in case it was dismissal of the worker, to ask for what reasons the previous candidate did not approach. Many applicants do not like to ask this question. As well many employers not willingly answer such questions. And it is vain! The answer to the matter will place all points over “ i “ both for the candidate, and for the employer.
For example, we will return besides to irregular working hours. This factor is so important for one candidate, say, to it it is necessary to take away the child from kindergarten that it will not be able from - for it to work in this company. In vain spent time and the applicant, and also time of the specialist in search of personnel and the direct head of this worker. For other candidate the same factor so insignificant that he is late at work, even without paying attention for hours. Respectively, the second candidate quietly will pass a trial period, and will effectively work at this place of work.
In many companies it is accepted to appoint the mentor for beginners. If in your company it is not accepted, find out from your direct head whom pertinently to address in case of any difficulty. In any collective there is a person who informally undertakes a role of the mentor, and with pleasure helps beginners. The management, as a rule, knows about existence of such person who can prompt to you also about informal rules. As celebrate birthdays in collective, it is far better to go to a lunch whether pertinently to address the head of your division at once or it is necessary to observe strictly subordination and to address at first the direct management in what time it is more convenient to approach the management with the report.
Still an important factor for successful and quiet passing of your trial period is your exact knowledge that from you want to see. At best, you also have to find out it on final interview, or, at appearance at work in the first days. Thus, you can already plan for yourself performance of these tasks. The accurate knowledge that want from you reduces your natural uneasiness at adaptation. Plan the day. Ask the management to place for you priorities in tasks. As a rule, about the most important points of work you are told on interview. If it did not occur, you have to ask about it. After that you will be able to define for yourself that you have to execute first of all. If a problem of global character, shatter it into several subtasks. Write for yourself the list of the actions necessary for performance of this task, their sequence and time of execution. All these actions will help you not “ to sink “ in volume of new information and requirements to you.
If you were taken in the company for performance of tasks about which you on interview told that you carried out and independently you know how them to solve, unacceptably to approach the management and to ask and as to execute them. For example, if you were taken on staff recruitment, on interview you claimed that you are engaged in it long ago and you know all, and then you approach and ask and on what websites to me to look for the secretary or the maker-up. Quite another matter, if you were taken on staff recruitment and development of hr - a brand of the company. In that case, pertinently to approach the management with the development plan for a brand and to discuss the acceptability of these or those your actions. If you do not know the answer to any question, ask your acquaintances or the global Internet. There are whole forums or communities of these or those professions where you will be answered the questions interesting you, and also you can always be aware of innovations in your profession.
If in the company there is no uniform corporate reference book, write down people, significant for you, what are their names, as to contact them. Also, if did not explain you structure of the company on an introductory seminar or training, ask either the mentor, or the management to explain to you with what divisions you interact what general tasks you carry out to whom you have to contact directly for performance of these tasks.
All these simple rules will help you to pass successfully the period of adaptation and to become part of collective on the new place of work.
