Strong Elements of Corporate Culture

Job Post

 

In today’s environment, in order to be successful in the job market, companies need to have a strong and healthy corporate culture within them. Employees are now becoming more and more aware of their own personal needs and they want to feel like they belong in the company. Moreover, employers must be aware of how to attract the best candidates for their companies and how to retain their old ones. Competitive pay and benefits, although extremely important, can only take you so far. Nowadays it is more about the work environment itself that is considered by the many people to be the deciding factor of working in a company.

So how do we make an environment suitable and enjoyable for a person? Not merely by adding a sports area, a gym, or free food. Because it is important to note that a good corporate environment doesn’t necessarily mean a fun and jolly environment. Although a light, relaxed atmosphere allows people to get comfortable quickly, there must also be some values and beliefs to which the company remains firmly committed to which define the work environment. These values will help build trust and integrity among colleagues and will also increase productivity as people would feel more comfortable to express and be themselves. Employees would be more willing to share their ideas and contribute for the company.

It is important for companies to not only understand that a strong corporate culture is important but also know how to create one. How would you exactly define a culture? Different companies have different cultures according to their own values and there are a lot of factors to be considered which form a corporate culture. However, the core values remain the same. A company would want a culture where there is a high standard of beliefs, values and attitudes in order for an individual or even a team to perform well. These values must reflect the core foundations of what the company was based on. Furthermore, strong corporate cultures will not only define the internal environment of a company but it also affects the customers too. A good culture is more likely to make a memorable and lasting impression on a customer and he/she is more likely to remain loyal to the company.

Previously, businesses operated by focusing on themselves. Their entire methodology was based on getting profits. In these times, the focus has shifted towards the customers. Now, it is more about satisfying the people and meeting their needs. Because, it is people who run the business in the end.

A corporate culture will differ from one company to another but there are certain salient features which are usually shared by all of them which are given below

 

  1. VALUES:
    Values are what makes the company. Values determine how a corporate environment should be and what behaviors and attitudes should be promoted or discouraged. These values, if acted upon firmly and properly, will ultimately lead the company to achieve its mission and vision. Often companies will target their focus on simple values like, employees or customers. But it is important to note that while there may be same values in different companies, the one which is better committed to them will be more successful. Its not mainly about the originality in coming up with values but it’s about how genuine a company is.

 

  1. TRANSPARENCY:
    Transparency is a crucial factor in determining a corporate culture. Employees should feel themselves that they are an integral part of the company and they are valued. That way, they will be more open and more relaxed in the company and are more likely to engage in discussions and share ideas.

    Transparency allows for an open and friendly environment. Usually in many companies, employees do have some brilliant ideas but they are hesitant to speak up.

  2. PHYSICAL SPACE:
    An individual’s physical space is extremely important to him or her. Our culture favors conversations and discussion being forced upon the employees and active participation is made mandatory. People have to deliberately step outside their personal space to engage with others. Obviously some people don’t consider this as an issue but there are many others who do. If a task can be completed perfectly by a single employee, there is no need to bring five others to collaborate with each other.

    It is extremely important for a company to recognize the individual personality of an employee and allow him to be more comfortable in his own environment. This would ensure a higher productivity and efficiency from the employees too.

 

  1. ORGANIZATIONAL DESIGN:
    By organizational design, we mean the whole formalities, structural hierarchy and the processes which happen in the company day by day. These may include various policies, performance evaluation, communication processes and whatnot. It can even include the way meetings are held. Are meetings held on a weekly basis to discuss the same subject again and again or are they only reserved for the truly important matters?

 

  1. EMPOWERMENT:
    Empowerment and freedom are interconnected. The more freedom a company allows for its employees, the more likely are the employees able to come up with creative solutions and effective brainstorming. Employees would feel more comfortable in managing and executing tasks and they are more likely to feel that they are actually a part of the organization. Often, there are strict guidelines which are rigidly enforced by the company’s management. While this is itself not a bad thing as it ensures proper formalities are observed, it can often limit an employee who may have a better solution and perhaps a better technique to perform an given task. This might result in a decrease in the employee’s general motivation and performance.

 

  1. MANAGEMENT SUPPORT:
    The upper management has to define the corporate culture. When the management is supportive of the employees, the employees will, in turn, be appreciative of the management. This increases the retention rate of the company since the employees are aware that they are being respected and supported in their work environment and it also brings top quality candidates for employees. Support from the management can be either in allowing greater freedom, encouraging new ideas or just being supportive in case a challenging situation arises.

 

  1. DEPENDABILITY:
    If a company’s isn’t dependable on its promises, it will soon lose its position. Everyone needs security and trust, whether it is the customer, employee, vendor or any other stakeholder. Dependability comes when a company is consistent in its ability to deliver quality goods and services on time and also exhibit positive values when engaging with the outside world. Doubtless it will give the company an overall improvement in the market, in terms of customer loyalty, market share, brand image and other factors.

 

  1. PLACE:
    Place is an underrated but nevertheless an important factor in determining corporate culture. The whole architectural design of the office, the décor, the placement, they all add up to making a corporate culture. Consider Pixar. Pixar has a huge open atrium where people mingle and interact with each other casually. Silicon Valley is famous for its high tech firms. London and New York are heavily concentrated with financial firms. There might be subtle characteristics of places and cultures which affect the whole work environment.

 

BUSINESS AND MARKETING STRATEGIES OF 2018

Job Post

 

As 2017 draws to its end, one can just see how eventful this year has been. The launch of Google Home and iPhone X was all over the news. Tesla and Amazon got a huge success in the market.

But 2018 is fast approaching and with it, a fresh potential of new trends and marketing strategies. If you want to stay updated on everything, you need to know of the following trends.

 

  1. Privacy protection
    Cyber security has popped up multiple times this year. There have been quite a few breaches in high profile data some of which include the Democratic National Committee hack and Equifax breach. Consumers are becoming increasingly aware of which products ensure the privacy.However if consumers don’t give priority to their privacy then government organizations will have to step in, some of which are already in action. For example European Union had passed a new law called GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) which is going to directly affect business on how they should protect their customer data. This also gives marketers a value proposition over privacy and data security across multiple industries.

 

  1. Instagram vs Facebook:
    Most of us use Facebook and Instagram. However, Instagram may very easily overtake Facebook as the leading social media website. This year, Instagram revealed that almost 800 million people use this application every month. And ever since, their latest feature of Instagram Stories was introduced, it has already overtaken Snapchat in popularity in just one year.Brands have reported better customer engagement on Instagram than any other social media. Since it allows better advertising control, brands will definitely target this app for their social media marketing.

 

  1. Artificial Intelligence:
    Already AI is taking over the world.  With tools like Intercom, marketers are able to use A.I powered live chat tools which makes it easier to communicate with customers. A.I technology is still being refined but it is a sure sign that brands will utilize this to better service to their customers or website visitors.
  2. Augmented Reality:
    iPhone 8 and iPhone X has transformed the world of augmented reality from a mere concept into actual reality. Although recently introduced, Augmented Reality has a huge potential for brands in their marketing strategies. They will soon begin to experiment and play around Augmented Reality sponsored and branded content.

 

  1. Live Events:
    It is estimated that almost two-thirds of marketers support the idea that they should increase the number of live events brands will host in 2018. It might be because marketers are aware of just how effective live events can be when used as a marketing tool and a proper channel.
    If you need any more convincing, consider the fact that some of the world’s most successful companies, such as Airbnb and Google host an annual event which is specifically designed to bring already existing customers together with new customers along with the media attention too.

 

  1. Fall of Twitter:
    We mentioned that Instagram would soar in popularity. Contrary to that, Twitter is actually experiencing a decline. The social media giant has been unable to grow users this year. Perhaps it was because Twitter’s strategy was more towards attracting users instead of self-improvement. You will see that people are more gearing towards other social media platforms rather than Twitter. This trend will occur within industries too and marketers are realizing that Twitter might not be as effective a marketing tool as it once was.

 

  1. Doubts on Virtual Reality:
    Augmented Reality might be the next big thing but what about virtual reality? When VR was introduced, a similar prediction was made regarding its success. Although the gaming community has popularized VR, it still has yet to go in the mainstream market. It is possible that brands might not be able to produce content with a fixed and controlled perspective.

 

  1. Machine learning for advertisements:
    You can pay thousands of dollars to digital marketing agencies to manage your advertisements… or you can use a machine learning platform which is more effective and efficient. Acquisio and Trapica are some of the new machine platforms which are used to optimize ad expenditure through the use of highly advanced machine learning algorithms. Marketers will simply need to establish basic campaign parameters and these platforms will carry out the task of identifying the best audiences and planning out the best strategies.

5 techniques to improve work environment

Job Post

 

Perhaps the most important goal in any work environment is to maximize “efficiency” and “effectiveness”. There is a difference, of course, between these two words although most people are confused about it. Efficiency means maximum output with minimum input while effectiveness means using all the available resources to get the best output.

And of course it is never easy. One cannot simply act upon this without being highly stressed. And while there may be different ways to counter this, what we are suggesting isn’t something out of a management theory or stuff like that. It is quite simple, easily stated in just one line

You need to change your work environment.

You might either be working at the same place on the same regular timings. Or you might be working remotely, depending on your needs. Be that as it may, if you are able to improve your existing work environment (and let’s face it, everything can be improved, no matter how good it is) then you will definitely find yourself not only more relaxed but also working more proficiently.

These tips will work regardless of the fact that you are feeling low, stressed, or just plainly unhappy. And even if you are not and are actually loving your job, it is an irrefutable fact that an improvement is nevertheless… an improvement.

 

So how would you bring changes in your work environment that would benefit you? Read on to find out 5 special yet simple techniques that would help you accomplish this.

 

  1. SERENE SILENCE OR BACKGROUND NOISE:
    What do you prefer? Quiet serenity where you are left alone with your thoughts? Do you enjoy that calm, peaceful silence? Or do you prefer to work with a little background noise? Perhaps the continuous hum of the traffic outside or a busy day in the office? Bear in mind that none of these options are better than the other? They each stand in their own way. It is just a matter of what suits you the most.
    Surely you have seen it. Some people are seen working in libraries where silence is heavy in the air by itself. Any interruption in silence gets angry looks from the people around. And you have also seen people working in cafes where the continuous flurry of activities around them makes them focus more on the work at hand. It all depends on your own personality.
    Perhaps some people feel more at home when they are surrounded by other people. They can get help on their task, a bit of guidance or motivation when they need it. Others feel more comfortable in their own space with no interruptions. It all depends on your own preferences.
  2. Personalizing your work space:
    Do you feel a little…. Disconnected from your work environment? When you think of your workplace, do you get a little depressed perhaps? Have you ever thought that maybe it is all because you have no personal attachment to it? And if that is case, why not do it? Why not add a touch of comfort in your workplace?

    You may put a family portrait on your desk. Your desktop background can have a picture of your pet or a family outing. Bring some miscellaneous items from your home, anything that would make you smile a little. Once you add that personal touch, you would actually start liking your workplace more.

  3. Get rid of clutter:
    Clutter only hinders your progress. There is no benefit of cluttering your workplace with unnecessary files, documents, and stationary or any other stuff which can only make your work more frustrating.

    We suggest you keep a handy bag always available where you have kept in your essentials. Devices, chargers, necessary documents. Not only will this declutter your workplace and sort out your items in one place, you won’t be forgetting anything when you are travelling.

  4. Fresh air:

    Never ever underestimate the importance of fresh air. Many studies have in fact shown that there is a direct relation between scents and memories. Emotional responses to situations can affect our mood and consequently our performance.

    Keeping plants actually refreshes the air. Open windows helps with the ventilation. Air fresheners make your work place smell good. These are extremely simple tricks which are unfortunately not really appreciated much.

  5. Lighting:
    Sometimes artificial light can make you feel closed or trapped. There have been studies done on how natural light actually lightens your mood, improves health,  and increases productivity. Ask yourself this. Do you not feel a sudden rush of inner joy and bliss when you step out of the office and feel the sunlight on your skin?  Why not utilize this natural light in your office?

    Obviously you would ask what if your workplace doesn’t permit any natural lighting. Not to worry. In that case, a simple, warm light such as of a lamp can create a relaxing environment. It will also prevent you from straining you reyes.

HOW HEALTH MANAGEMENT WORKS IN A SOCIETY

HOW HEALTH MANAGEMENT WORKS IN A SOCIETY

 

You are going to make decisions for your career throughout your life. One of the more unheard of but rapidly growing field is the healthcare management. Health management offers an immense amount of opportunities and challenges. Healthcare executives work in a different array of environments including hospitals, long term care facilities, home health agencies, consulting firms and many others.

Perhaps it can be said that healthcare is changing more rapidly than almost any other field. The field is changing in terms of how and where care is delivered, who is providing those services, and how that care is financed. Some of the trends which are expected to rise in the following years are

  • Integration of healthcare delivery organizations to create accessible, appropriate, and comprehensive care pathways for all people
  • Steady rate of advancement in medical technology

Collaboration among provider organizations, physicians, businesses, insurers, and others to improve community health status

  • Increased emphasis and awareness on prevention of diseases and wellness promotion
  • Better-informed patients demanding high-quality care
  • Pressure to control and regulate costs and demonstrate the value of the services delivered from business, government, insurers, and patients
  • Efforts to implement continuous quality improvement initiatives like those found in other fields

 

For this particular field, these times are just full of potential and opportunities. The field requires talented people to help introduce and manage the changes taking place. In their roles, healthcare executives have an opportunity to make a significant contribution to improving the health of the communities their organizations serve. Healthcare executives may be found in so many different places like

 

 

  • Specialty clinics
  • Hospitals
  • Public Health Resources
  • Nursing homes
  • Rehabilitation clinics
  • Pharmacies

 

According to American College of Healthcare Executives, it has been estimated that around 100,000 people work in health management positions at various levels. Admittedly, the senior level positions in healthcare organizations are highly demanding. However, it is worth mentioning that they also provide opportunities to upgrade the current system of care giving.

One must be careful never assume health executives are needed in only traditional hospital setting. It is an open fact that many healthcare executives are known to hold senior positions in a broad range of institutions. Of course, the drawback to this is that it has indeed made the competition fierce even at entry-level job. Due to this many positions, which previously demanded a bachelor’s degree, now requires a Master’s degree.  Each year, about 2,000 students receive graduate degrees in healthcare management.

 

A basic criteria for employing entry level managers is as following according to American College of Healthcare Executives

 

Academic training/previous work experience

  • sA degree in health administration from a school accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Management Education or another degree that may qualify you
  • A commitment to professional development and continuing education
  • Previous positions, internships, and fellowships in healthcare organizations or other business settings

Communication skills

  • Strong written and oral communication skills
  • Ability to develop and present reports and proposals

Adaptability/organizational fit

  • Personal and career objectives that mesh with those of the organization
  • Ability to work well with others, including superiors, subordinates, and peers
  • Attitude and appearance that communicate confidence, maturity, and competence

Dependability, judgment, character

  • Maturity to make decisions and take responsibility for them
  • Honest and ethical business conduct
  • Willingness to make a commitment to the organization

General management skills

  • Leadership that inspires and motivates others
  • Ability to train, delegate, evaluate, coordinate, and negotiate

 

If you want some general guidelines on how to establish your career in the healthcare management, consider the following tips.

 

  1. Investigate: investigate many educational programs both graduate and undergraduate. Programs vary widely from place to place. Some offer a broad summary of the field, while others provide in depth training in managing specific kinds of organizations.

 

  1. Stay updated on healthcare: Be aware of all the trends and changes occurring in the field and use them to create opportunities. These changes might originate from changing demographic and reimbursement trends to developments in healthcare policies.

 

  1. Be patient and flexible. It is highly possible that you will have to relocate to another part of the country to take advantage of a specific educational program or job opportunity. As mentioned above, different areas cater to different aspects of healthcare management.

 

  1. Develop interpersonal skills: Your success in the field of healthcare largely depends on your ability to get along well with people from all lifestyles. They may be employees, physicians, and the public. Knowing how to deal with each of them and how to negotiate and motivate them is crucial if you want to prosper in healthcare.

HOW THE WORK PLACE CAN BE OPTIMIZED

Job Post

 

It is said that good companies need the right people for the right roles. And it is completely true. However one of the often underappreciated aspect of a job is the workplace itself. The whole work environment affects your performance and your own workplace reflects the mindset in which you are in.

If you feel depressed just by thinking of your office or cubicle, have you wondered why it is so? Speaking about the workplace only, have you tried to set it up according to what you want or have you just let it be as it was before. Or worse, have you made it worse? These questions may seem insignificant on the outside but trust me, they are highly important.

If you haven’t optimized your workplace to your needs, you should start doing so. Below are few tips for helping you create your own ideal workplace.

 

  1. Silence or Noise:
    Many people prefer to work in silence. They enjoy the calm and serenity and they feel they are able to focus better on the task at hand due to the lack of distractions. However some prefer to have a little background noise. They feel active and in the moment and regard working in silence as boring. The choice is yours depending on your personality. If you are unable to find the quiet environment in a busy area, try plugging your headphones in. If you want a little noise, try listening to music with your headphones.
  2. Personalizing your space:
    If you feel disconnected from your work, try putting some familiar objects around you. Often people put a family portrait on their desks or shelves. You can perhaps change your screensaver to a picture of a family trip or of your pet. These things would help you get comfortable in your workplace.
  3. Get rid of clutter:Keep it simple and neat. Get rid of everything that is unnecessary. We all have that one particular room or corner of the house where everything gets dumped. Don’t make that mistake in your office. Having too many items on your desk or desktop can distract you from being productive. Plus it makes finding things a lot harder.
    If you are working on-the-go, take a “go-bag” which would contain all the essential items which are always needed, like chargers, identification, devices, documents and other stuff. Just avoid creating a messy environment.
  1. Plants, open windows, air fresheners:
    Many studies have been done to show that there is a distinct relation between scents and memories. So why not apply that theory in your workplace too? If you have a positive reaction to a certain scent, why not apply it? Use air fresheners to keep your environment fresh and clean. You can install some potted plants too to keep it bright. A bouquet of flowers can sweeten up your workplace and make it more aesthetically appealing.
  2. Lighting/brightness:
    If your workplace has fluorescent lights only, it is possible that it would be stuffy and you would feel trapped. It is proved through various studies that natural lighting has a positive effect on our health and mood. We all love that feeling of getting the warmth of natural sunlight on our skin. An open window can allow for a light and cool breeze which can be refreshing.
    If you work in a place where you don’t have access to a window, placing a simple lamp can help you give warmth to your work environment.
  1. Overexposure to screens:
    Screen-time can be a huge part of our work lives and day to day activities. Not only can you adjust the brightness of your screen, you can also alter the font size, style, color, and contrast to keep you from squinting and straining your eyes. Many eye doctors prescribe the “20-20-20” rule which is
  • Look away from your computer at least every 20 minutes
  • Gaze at a distant object (at least 20 feet away)
  • Look at it for at least 20 seconds
  1. Neck pain and back strain:
    An important one this is. It is vital that you work in a position that makes you comfortable and allows you to maintain a good posture. A standing desk can prevent you from tightening up and slouching all day but of course, standing for long periods of time will not be good for anyone. Similarly sitting for a long period of time has adverse effects too. Simply put, having a comfortable chair and high enough desk will do wonders. Holding up your device at the eye level also goes a long way.
  2. Water and snacks:
    Try keeping a water bottle readily available at your desk. Drinking 6-8 cups of water can be hard to keep track of and may often prove to be distracting. Staying hydrated not only keeps you refreshed but it is also crucial for your health, productivity and it increases your memory. Similarly keep some snacks around too. A hungry mind is not a focused mind.

Balance Work Life with Healthy Mind & Body

Job Post

 

 

As I write this article on my laptop; from the notes I made on my mobile; on my way back home, I realize that you can’t really keep your work away from home. Especially if your HOME is your WORKPLACE. For us lazy bees, our office is our laptop, so the idea of creating boundaries between professional life and home time, is nonexistent. Or maybe I am just in denial.

 

In our race to get everything done at the professional front as well as home, our stress levels spike, so our efficiency takes a run down the hill too. Stress can affect our concentration level, make us cantankerous or even miserable, and silently kills our personal and professional relationships. Take it from a doctor, it even raises the level of cortisone (the stress hormone) in our blood, weakens our immune system, predisposes us to a list of diseases no one would even want to know. That alone will get us stressed – creating a paradox.

 

While stress being something unavoidable, and may at times help us bring out the best, the key to managing stress lies in that one magic word: BALANCE.

 

“Balance is not better time management, but better boundary management.”

~ Betsy Jacobson

 

The fact that most of the workers face this dilemma just proves that there is a generational shift in our attitudes to work. Millennials (those born after 1980s) are more likely to blur the lines between work and home compared to Generation X (those born in 1970s). The reason being, the vast evolution of technology in less than a decade.

 

“Technology can be our best friend, and technology can also be the biggest party pooper of our lives. It interrupts our own story, interrupts our ability to have a thought or a daydream, to imagine something wonderful, because we’re too busy bridging the walk from the cafeteria back to the office on the cell phone.”

~ Steven Spielberg

 

Many people struggle striking a balance between health and work life because they feel it is impossible. But that’s not the case. Not only is achieving a healthy work life balance an attainable goal but workers and businesses reap the benefits. When workers manage to keep their social and professional life balanced, they are the most happy. This does not only makes them more productive but also makes them feel secure and wanting to continue with their job.

 

Even if you love your job or a pure workaholic like me, and so enjoy working, it is important to make sure, profession doesn’t take over your entire life. So to maintain that, a healthy mind and body is the key. Which directly assures a healthy work-life balance.

HEALTHY MIND

 

1. Be Clever:
The most often quoted phrase “Work smart not hard” is such a profound advice. People forget that working hard and working smart are two totally different things. Smart means utilizing the best of your sources to achieve better output in limited time. And the easiest way is to make a schedule. Useless unorganized meetings, unrelated forwarded emails, all this drains the good energy. Thereby reducing your output and increasing your burden. Prioritizing and allotting your more productive time to bigger tasks and getting done with them first, helps save time. And who doesn’t like free time on their hands?

 

2. Take a Chill Pill:
Small breaks at work help clear your head, and improve your ability to deal with stress. To do that, always take your lunch break and avoid eating at your desk. If you’re working continuously on a screen, your eyes deserves a break and so does your stomach. To relax, listen to your favorite music at work to raise concentration, reduce stress and anxiety, and stimulate creativity. To top it off, do not worry about things that are not in your control. Work doesn’t kill men, worrying does.

 

3. Perfection is a Myth:

“Striving for excellence motivates you; striving for perfection is demoralizing.”

~Harriet Braiker

 As you leave work, you realize you haven’t done something as well as you could. You go back and make it a point to do it right. This attitude may garner you a promotion and countless praises but will definitely harm your mind. Perfection is unrealistic and overrated.  Know that whatever is done in this world, there always will be a better way to do it. So no need to beat yourself about it. Do your best, but take a rest when it’s done. Do not fuss about how you can make it perfect.

 

4. No Homework:

Make it a rule and follow it religiously not to bring work home. Closure to work is an important trait one must be able to practice. You should be able to confine work and close the door on it. The secret to this is, unplugging. The same technology that makes our work easy and flexible can also burn us out. Great for when you need to be flexible, not so great if work starts to look more like 24/7. Overworking can impact your health, relationships and overall happiness, and being ‘always-on’ doesn’t help. So recognize the need for personal time, too.

HEALTHY BODY

 

5. Stay Active

The mind may be bursting with ideas but if the body is not up for it, all goes to vain. The only time we run is when someone says exercise. Regular exercise reduces stress, depression and anxiety, and enables people to better cope with adversity. It improves your immune system and keeps you out of the doctor’s office reducing sick days.

Fitting a walk into a busy life can be challenging, so I suggest walking rather than driving to work or to run errands as often as you can. Eat right, exercise and get adequate rest. Drink tons of water as it detoxifies not just your body but also your brain from exhaustion. Don’t rely on drugs, alcohol or cigarettes to cope with stress; they’ll only lead to more problems. Lastly, enjoy life. J

Scope of Manufacturing and Industrial Engineering in Today’s World

Job Post

 

Industrial engineering is all about designing and managing methods and procedures to increase productivity, quality and efficiency in manufacturing process. That is, in essence what industrial engineering is. The increasing complexity of industrial operations and the expansion of automated processes in factories and offices is contributing to the demand for industrial engineers. And while it sounds hard, the actual work in this field is all the more difficult.

 

Now, usually people don’t have a really good idea what Industrial Engineering is actually or the type of words Industrial Engineers actually do. And you will be usually asked to follow the herd and just follow the same course of action that all the others are doing. BIG mistake. In ignorance, people may even tell you not to pick this field. What they don’t realize is this field is offering a LOT of opportunities in the world.

 

Industrial Engineering is in virtually every industry vertical today. Manufacturing, technology, hardware, retail, healthcare. Many universities offer business classes related to the field of Industrial Engineering in areas such as logistics, supply chain management and analytics. These courses can offer you a good grasp on the business side of a company too. While you may want to take other majors, you should also understand that Industrial Engineering and Business go well together. An Industrial Engineer would have a good advantage for an MBA degree, specializing in supply chain, marketing or finance as they all complement the technical aspects of Industrial Engineering.

 

An Industrial Engineer can always explore different areas or work in different roles. For example, you can work on data analysis too and just sit behind a computer all day. Many jobs exist belonging to industrial engineering which require deep data analysis and business analysis. Or if you want to work directly on the production level, there are multiple jobs in areas like logistics engineering, manufacturing engineering, production, forecasting and others too. It is also not necessary that you are working only with machines, computers, operation rooms and the like. Technology is ever evolving and you would have to keep up with all of the new advancements.

    Pass up a standard CV template that innumerable other applicants may also be using. Allow your CV mirrors who you are. Show your creativity through your CV with design additions, if you are in a creative industry. However be sure creativity doesn’t signify being casual. The CV content should always be professional. Creativity can be added by some color, by the use of graphical tools to symbolize numbers or just via a different font size in your CV. Don’t over style your CV.
  1. Keep it genuine:
    A good CV is brief, clear and crafts every point essential without blathering. There is no need of pages and pages of paper, just maintain things sweet and short. And if everything is content, there’s a good possibility of a job interview. As employers get dozens of CVs all the time, most will formulate a judgment about CV within sections.

Typically a CV should be no more than two pages and that’s two pages of A4 paper. Keep it to the point, punchy, and save those niggle slight details for the interview.

  1. Go through job description:
    The same CV doesn’t toil for two different job offers. Thoroughly research about company. A good CV is customized to the exact job and company you are applying for. What’s their mission statement? What company does? What do you think they are seemed for in an employee? What skills are specifically required? These are all things to stay in mind when writing your CV.

It’s not the same thing to apply to translation job and video editor job. For the first, you might highlight about the languages you talk in, while for the second one it’s important to highlight your experience with software.

  1. Keep it updated:
    Keep your CV up to date either you’re looking for a job or not. Every time something noteworthy occurs in your career, trace it so that later you don’t fail to remember something that could be important.
  1. Come up with your interests and hobbies:
     Distinctive hobbies or interests will show you stand out. Be conscious of the conclusions that may be drained from your hobbies. Try to enlist hobbies that depict you as a team oriented person instead of as a passive, friendless person. Companies wish for someone who works well with others.

Interests and hobbies depicting your positive image:

Being the captain of soccer/ football/cricket team, organizing a charity occasion for an orphanage, president or any other post of your school’s student society

Hobbies that entail a friendless, passive personality:

Putting things like doing puzzles, watching TV and reading. Put these things giving a reason why.

  1. Include your cover letter:
    People often ignore cover letters, and still if they do include one it is most of times not tailored for every job application, too common error. Do not underrate the value of including a cover letter. It helps employers recognize that you are truly interested for that exacting job profile or in working for their organization.
  1. Should be keyword friendly:
    If you are going to upload your CV to a job site so that recruiters can discover you, then keywords are no doubt very significant. Job buzzwords and Job titles will assist a search engine picking up your CV from the large piles. Puzzled? Then don’t be. A marketing candidate may point out SEO (Search Engine Optimization), straight marketing and digital marketing amongst their skills and experiences like for example, if you aren’t sure, go to Google and search online and observe what words are normally mentioned when you enter your job title.
  1. Include references:
    Add References from someone who has employed you in the earlier period and can guarantee for your experience and skills. If you have never worked before, use a tutor or teacher as a referee. Aim to include two if you can.

Impact of Personality on Work

Job Post

 

 

Personality is one of the most important characteristics of a person when doing a job. of course, different types of personalities are suited for different jobs. Not every personality will react the same way in a certain situation. It is extremely important to recognize the traits and qualities of an employee and to assign them duties for which they are best suited for. This will result in increased productivity and job satisfaction.

 

Introvert Extrovert Dilemma:

Outgoing people or extroverts are better suited for jobs which require large amounts of interaction with people such customer service. They have a natural advantage with this type of job since they have always been great with communication and socializing. These people can also improve the motivation levels of other employees by being energetic and happy.

However, they may not necessarily flourish in a job behind closed doors. For example, Information Technology is one such area where the skills and knowledge of the person is prioritized more over his socializing skills. These types of jobs do not require much interaction with other employees. People who are introverted and of a quiet nature may find these jobs more appealing as compared to the ones which require socializing as it may seem too daunting to them.

 

Motivation:

This is an interesting topic. What motivates people to come out of their homes to their offices? What is the driving force behind their choice of the respective profession? Some people are only concerned about money, hence they are more likely to work harder if they are promised a raise or a bonus. Some people want recognition with their peers. hence they will be more dedicated to their tasks if they are acknowledged openly in front of others. Some people are only about self motivation. They are just do their jobs for the sake of doing it. their own personal satisfaction is enough for them. Hence we need to learn on how these differences in personality types can be utilized for the maximum output.

 

Work ethics:

People who tend to prioritize their jobs usually display high levels of work ethics. On the other hand, there are some people who would while away the hours and time doing nothing of practical value. They would often turn in their assignments late or just in time. People with weak work ethics tend to require more management to keep them focused on their work while people with strong work ethics require minimum supervision.

 

Detail Oriented:

Some people are planners. They think about the possible future prospects and position of the company in the long run. How to attain those prospects and what plans and strategies need to be implemented in to achieve that goal. They can come up with broad plans designed to keep the company moving forward. They can also come up new initiatives to solve problems. However they are not always equipped to properly execute those plans.

For execution of plans, the detail oriented people are required. What the people mentioned above (planners) lack in is compensated for their attention to details. They might face difficulty in following a direction or deviating from a pre-established path. But if you give them a task, they will see to it that it is done with perfection. Too often than not, these people are highly organized and keep excellent records. Both of these types of people are necessary for a company to perform well and they are remarkably suited to compensate for each other’s weaknesses.

 

Mind vs. Heart:

There are people who have a scientific approach for almost everything in life. They are always about logic. If the logic is sound enough, then the answer must be right regardless of what others think. Sometimes they can become cold and insensitive to other’s feelings but most of them do have strong analytical powers and they always look for hard, irrefutable facts.

And then there are people who are the opposites of these logisticians. They are receptive towards the feelings of others and act accordingly to them. While the analysts try to solve problems as if they are far away from it, these people want to become a part of it. The analysts considers these people to be biased, subjective and illogical while on the other hand, those people consider analysts to be cold and unfeeling. While both of these personality groups are important for an organization to run, there can often be a clash of ideas which may even cause problems and disruptions to the work environment.
