Take Back Control of Your Life Through Good Work

Take Back Control of Your Life Through Good WorkWork Is Good ®, regardless of what you may be told by friends or what you hear from folks who want to complain about everything.

When YOU control your work performance you are actually influencing in a positive way, how others think and feel about you, and in return how you are respected and treated. You will BUILD your career and Build a Better Life, by earning Better Choices.

A few hints to get you on the right track:

1) Show up EVERY DAY on time (10-15 minutes EARLY is the new "On Time"). This will get you noticed by the bosses. Make back-up plans for transportation, child care, buses, weather.

2) Who is your Boss? Both the onsite supervisor AND your staffing firm’s recruiter. Yes, BOTH.

3) If you are ill and want to stay home? Go in any way. Let the Boss send you home. It’s then their idea, not yours. You will get positive points for making the effort. Too many people call off sick when they could go to work. That makes it more difficult on you.

4) Social media: mentioning negative thoughts about your work: DON’T. They check. Social media pages: Clean them up.

5) Want to leave your job? Talk to your recruiter first. Don’t just walk off. Doing so will follow you in a negative way. Give 1-2 weeks notice.

6) "Walking off" the job or getting fired due to poor performance or attendance will NOT get you unemployment money.

7) Safety: FOLLOW THE RULES. Don’t take shortcuts even if the staff there tells you to. Pay attention to your safety training. If you don’t you could get hurt.

8) Follow the dress code. Don’t wear "personal statement" clothes. Dress "neutral". Dress for the weather INSIDE your facility. Ask about jewelry. Be clean.

9) Cell phones: check to see if they are okay to have on-premises.

10) Drugs and Booze: Drugs: NO. There could be a random check. If you are injured, you will be checked. Booze: same thing.

11) Sexual harassment: Just NO.

12) Don’t join a "work gang". You won’t get promoted. EVER.

13) Pay attention to your training. Ask questions. Know the job expectations you are to meet. Stretch yourself.

14) Focus on your job and get it right. It will get easier. Then you can focus on being your best, with less sweat and less hassle.

15) Put out your best efforts every day. Companies are looking for people who want to get new training, be promoted and be considered "of value". Putting out just enough to not get fired will get you nowhere.

16) Bad Boss? Conditions change? Call your recruiter before you do ANYTHING! They may be able to fix it. They will try. If you walk off or get into an argument, there is nothing that can be done. And you will lose money. Your recruiter can also get you another job.

Get Your Education, But Don't Forget This One Thing...

By Champion Personnel
June 04, 2019 Category: Candidates, Education

It seems that the government, school systems and employers (and media) are all stressing the need for more useful knowledge (learn a skill). Knowledge is good. But NEVER forget that being successful has more to do with your efforts and results than your book knowledge. Employers will hire a hard-working, enthusiastic person who wants to learn WAY before they will hire a person with theoretical knowledge who shows little or no desire/drive or Grit. And they will promote the hard charger years before the person with a piece of paper who shows no drive or motivation. Fact. No Bull. Motivation in action: the path to A Better Job. A Better Life. Ask us how.

Get Paid More. Get Promoted

It is actually easier today than 10 or 15 years ago. More people today miss more work, are late for work or put out just enough to get by. Employers are frustrated and are in urgent need of promotable people they can count on. Here are 4 things you can do to make more money, get promoted or get recognized as an outstanding employee. None of these will cost you a dime: Show up for work, every day, 5-10 minutes early. Be ready to work. This will absolutely be noticed by managers. Even if you are sick, show up and let your employer send you home. Calling off via phone or text leaves questions. Put out 100% of your best efforts. You are there. Might as well. Look for and ask for other things to do, if your job is stalled. You will get known as a doer, someone who can set a good example. Be attentive. Having a focus on your work will, again, get you noticed. People who get noticed for doing good things, acting like a good worker, get raises and more training, and promotions.

How to Tell the Right People Your Boss is a Jerk

Tempting, isnt it? Satisfying? Could be. Do many deserve it? Yes. And no. Being a Boss or Manager is NOT easy. And most receive NO or very little training or coaching in how to be a good one. 75% of all quits today have something to do with leaving a Boss, not the company. So, when do you tell someone about a Bad Boss? After you leave? The day you leave? Weeks BEFORE you leave? Not at all? Here is what to do, if you are looking for a solution, or you want to be considered an exemplary employee (especially if you ARE going to leave, eventually, and want a good reference): 1) Make sure you are darn good at what you do, or getting there. Perhaps any negative comments from the Bad Boss have to do with your behavior or results. If your output or behavior is lacking, some of the sandpaper between you and your Bad Boss is he/she simply wearing thin about you. 2) Write down the actual incidents where the Boss is being Bad. What happened? What started it? How did it come across? Do you have
