Your Work Environment – What Are Its Core Values?
If you are employed and have been finding it hard to find a job, it might be because you don’t like the kind of work you do or you would rather do something else rather than work. But you could not really blame employers for wanting to employ someone with your skills and qualifications. So it can be a very tough decision for you whether to continue working or look for another job. The question is what are the different types of jobs that you can work on if you don’t like to work so much?
Labor or hard labor: to work by the sweat or in hard labor or by a little or no fee in such a way as to meet an objective or a priority object (as in farm labor or agricultural work) or to do labor or more serious labor in a superior or inferior way (as in construction work). Labor work values the worth of human life as something totally apart from any wealth, though in some ways people value wealth more than life. When people are engaged in labor, they feel a certain pride in doing something. Generally, however, this kind of work can’t be done everywhere and it’s quite difficult, although it can be easily integrated into everyday life.
Identifying your own work values and determining what your right job is may be difficult, but in fact it is not as difficult as you think. The first step is to choose one activity or profession that matches with your own values and objectives. Next you need to research and read about some of the most successful people and businesses in your field and go and visit their places or talk to their employees to find out how they started their careers, their achievements, and their work values and objectives.
Your Core Values: The very first step you need to take in your career search is to understand your own career objectives and core values. What are the things that you admire about your former jobs and that make you want to get into a specific career? How do you see yourself in your new career? What are the things that you would expect to get out of a great work environment and what are the things that you think would discourage you from getting a new job? Knowing your core values can be an important first step when you’re trying to figure out how to identify your work environment’s core values.
Employer Work Values: There are various aspects to an employer’s values, namely extrinsic motivation, intrinsic motivation, attitudes toward safety, and customer service. Extrinsic motivation refers to what your boss finds motivating for employees. Intrinsic motivation is what your employees find attractive about their jobs. Customer service is usually what employers consider to be a necessary trait for success. Of course, all of these things are important in any work environment, but they can also combine to create your ideal work environment.
Your Job Search Success: The whole point of your job search is to start getting the information that you need to make the best hiring decisions possible. You can’t do that if you don’t know what your dream job looks like. Spend some time thinking about the things that you admire most about your past jobs and what aspects of those jobs appeal most to you on a personal level and spend some time reflecting on what your employer’s core values are and how you’d fit into their working environment.
