The global census data of 2016 states that approx 59.7% of global population is employed in various sectors; roughly 4.7 people are unemployed and rest are either students or homemakers or retired old age people. Now the question arises how many people out of 59.7% people are happy with their job (job is not limited to service but also covers self employment or early entrepreneurship)?

Another interesting survey also stated that 90% of people are not happy with their current occupation /job and therefore the best of them rarely comes out. Then what are the factors of this professional dissatisfaction? There could be multiple reasons and issues but today we restrict our discussion to service class people who do service somewhere. In this case some of the primary reasons are the monetary gain one might be receiving, work life balance, fatigue, stress, etc

According to the experts and previous observations, the major attrition happens post appraisal season and they look for more lucrative opportunities with higher financial benefits. But with the passage of time the equations have changed because of increasing maturity both the sides – employers and job seekers. Therefore while negotiating about the most important aspect of the job – salary negotiation – a job seeker must remember that “salary is very important in the new job, but it’s not everything.” And when a job seeker very conveniently overlooks this simple fundamental rule, he simply increases his chance of losing that opportunity. Therefore a job seeker must take care of following things while discussing over pay package and other perks & benefits. 

  1. Keeping a figure in mind and then negotiating can be disappointing:

Mostly the employers or recruiters announces the pay package along with recruitment advertisement but that is in most cases the highest limit (unless specified) for that position. Now considering that if a job seeker doesn’t fulfil all criteria for particular job and starts negotiating from the figure as per recruitment add, can instigate the recruiter to bypass your candidature and look for some other prospects. So do proper homework before this kind of discussion.

2. If you will control yourself then you will never be exhausted:

One of the reasons of being “burned out” is that you don’t have control over you or yourself. There are many reasons for being exhausted or feeling unusual fatigue, some of them are you are doing strenuous activities or indulging in unnecessary tasks. Another reason is that because of workload or improper work life balance you are not able to connect to your eco system and therefore you end up draining energy. So do proper study of job profile before appearing in the interview and justify firmly why and how your expectations are rationale in connection to your expected role at new place.

3.Why you shouldn’t tell your colleagues about your stress:

Stress is actually contagious. When you chatter about your stress to someone, you feel temporary relief but it doesn’t going to help you reduce the same, on the contrary that person also will be infected with stress and unknowingly he will also be indulged in spreading it. Only solution to stop this contagious act is you have to watch & control the way you talk. Your stress related to your work or financial matters really don’t bother others then why to share with them? Remember there are no buyers of your challenges. If, in any case, you have to converse about the stress then also talk on remedies and solutions, what strategies are you using to reduce your stress or how can you be a problem solver.

“Being a great place to work is the difference between being a good company and a great company.”

In previous article we talked about new job, salary negotiation, work life balance and stress in job. In this article we shall talk on maintaining the emotional quotient and maintain emotional equilibrium during the most frustrating, undesired and unwanted working conditions.

Today, the social media revolution driven era has contributed in drastic reduction in the patience & tolerance level of both employees and clients/customers. Because of that all the conglomerates & big companies have entered in the dogfight with each other to capture each others’ talents and market share. In this chaotic situation the most important thing which has completely forgotten and side tracked is the work life balance, mental peace and emotional equilibrium.

Today everyone is in the race of to be first, fastest and best and because of this rat race the contenders’ mental peace is at stack and in battle of building a great corporation, sometimes we end up in building pressure cookers and nothing else which gives just pressure and nothing else. Here are certain tips which may help you even before entering such corporation to the sustaining in undesired atmosphere.

  1. How to face complex questions in the interview:

“Tell me something about yourself” - this tricky & deceptive questions may look like an ordinary and casual one but it requires a hell lot of preparation of yours. What would you want to depict in this answer? Your history of previous job or your life story or just showing your LinkedIn page? Don’t ever think doing so because the interviewer has already all your detail and he / she expects you to be spontaneous, innovative & yet effective. Rather study the core vision & values of organisation before appearing in an interview and then talk about your possible contributions in alignment to those values. In short you have to convince them how and why you are the only bet solution of their hunt.

The most tragic, awkward and painful situation in the job is deception by the boss or the immediate supervisor. Many times such bosses manipulate the decency and innocence of the subordinate and keep giving false promises of promotion, growth, etc; Every time when it takes place – one thinks to quit the job and go away but every time this may not be possible. If, because of any inevitable situation, you cannot quit the job then there are certain preventive measures assuring your safety. They are – always have respect for others, keep giving credit to others for their work, if somebody is snatching away your credit then make sure the key people are aware about your contributions, don’t suppress your feelings – let them come out in a proper way; ultimately don’t compromise with your own core values. Because of your boss don’t become something which you never want to become.

Criticism is our in born talent cum hobby. We always criticise something or someone every time; but research says that continuous criticising results into the decreased creativity & enthusiasm. If you will criticise constructively then team would also reciprocate positively but your stubborn and offensive way of criticism may encourage them to rebel and non cooperation. Listen to the team, analyze, then explain what corrections needed and then encourage them.
