After the interview you attended a few weeks ago, you are informed that you are selected for the job role, and it is your first day at work in the new company with the new environment. The need to adapt to the new environment, building your relationship with your new co-workers and having a new work routine gives us a lot of pressure. Learning to cope with these stress can be challenging. But there is still a way. Here are some tips to deal with it.
- Learning and Understanding the Company’s Culture
Most Company would provide training for new employees during the first week of work. These trainings include the introduction of the company as well as the company’s culture and value, structure, the scope of their business activities and their day to day operation. This information allows new employees to understand more about the company, so as to let them quickly adapt to the new role.
- Interacting with your co-workers
Do not reject your co-workers when they ask you socialise. Also, conduct yourself in a professional manner. People are still not familiar with you, so this is the chance to create a good impression of you. Additionally, you should stay neutral. Keep away from gossips which could keep you away from disagreements with your co-workers and leave a better impression of you as well.
- Don’t be afraid to ask questions!
You are new to the job, and you still have doubts on a lot of things. It feels isolated to figure out everything on your own. By asking your co-workers these, it can help you save time, shows that you are eager to learn and best of all, you get to know them!
Try observing the behaviour and values of your work team. Any mistakes may make you hard to fit into the team. Many would want their abilities to be recognised but avoid being overly enthusiastic as this may give your co-workers an impression that you are talkative.
