A study from CV Library has uncovered a finding; that around 70% of us are looking to impress our new boss, not just for the initial period when we are starting in a new position, but for the entire time we are working at that company. Today we look at how this enthusiasm tends to last in reality as well as how we might go about it!
First Impressions Count
How To Impress
- By effectively managing our workload
- By putting forward new ideas
- By taking on additional responsibilities outside of our remit
- By helping other members of our team
- By always being on time
The Downside To The Best Intentions
However there is a downside – and it links with this post we wrote last week. The issue of workplace stress is a significant one with half of workers in a recent survey reporting it to be a very real issue for them at work. There appear to be geographical and income factors that influence stress too – with a sweet spot interestingly enough appearing around the £20,000 - £40,000 range.
We love the fact that Brits are looking to impress their bosses – but employees should have a little more faith that their “normal” selves are “boss” enough to keep their new bosses delighted with their performance!
We love the fact that we take pride in our work as a nation and are looking to charm our bosses and get ahead in our careers.
