Find a job you enjoy doing, and you will never have to work a day in your life” – Mark Twain

Culture

Culture is everything in the workplace; not only does it boost morale, but it also encourages your team to be more open to change. Personally, I have always enjoyed work more when everyone is not only hard working, but can also have fun.

Progression

Having a goal to work towards is extremely important, not only is it motivating but it also gives you a sense of purpose. Having clear goals also shows your company are truly invested in your success and because of this, you invest into the company. If you really want to progress in your role, you must be prepared to step away from your job spec and take on different challenges. Doing this is extremely rewarding and always leaves me with a huge sense of achievement.

Flexibility

I like to have a good work-life balance. I have read a lot of articles on the benefits of flexible working hours but until I was given the option, I never realised how beneficial it was. I can plan my working week around other commitments and when I am at my desk, I can be fully focused.

Colleagues

It’s always better to have a good working relationship with your colleagues. I have always found work more enjoyable when I like the company I’m surrounded with. I am more confident to voice my opinion as I feel like a valued member, which also helps me to grow in my role.

 

There are so many benefits to enjoying what you do, not only do you become more confident and continue to grow but your health improves and overall you are a happier person. On average, you spend a total of 82,086 hours at work in a lifetime, so why would you want to spend that time being unhappy?  If you can find more negatives than positives in your role, maybe it’s time for a change….
