When starting a new job there is always a sense of anxiety and a sense of the unknown. Here are some points to guide you on settling into a new company culture.
Be open to learning.
From how to use the coffee machine, to the company’s policies and procedures, to industry insight, every company has their own way of doing thing. Soak it in and learn.
Focus on relationships.
Be open and connect. trust takes time to build and you need to develop trust within your work team. You are as new to them as they are to you.
Keep it clean
Avoid gossip. Office politics are a sure way to get into hot water. Avoid gossip and emotionally charged situations.
Get involved, Take initiative.
Don’t be asked to do something that you know if in your scope of work.
Ask for feedback.
If your manager has not scheduled regular touch points with you, set them up. find out where you can improve, and be open to constructive criticism.
Starting something new can be overwhelming sometimes, but don’t forget to relax and enjoy it at the same time.
