All Star Labor & Staffing is just that… All Stars. We pride ourselves on having some of the greatest employees there are. But what does it mean to be a true All Star employee? True All Stars show up early, go above and beyond, have an open mind, a positive attitude, and show gratitude for opportunities. These are the employees that we are proud to provide to the successfully growing businesses we work with.
Be on time.
Punctuality is a must no matter the job. Showing up late looks poorly on an employee and it may appear that an employer’s time is not important. Good rule of thumb is always show up at least fifteen minutes early, this way you get in, get your stuff put away and are ready to start right on time. If you are ever running behind, it is also a good idea to notify your employer.
Be a team player.
Companies our built on team work, so it is essential to be able to work well individually and as a team. Good team work benefits everyone by getting the work done more quickly, combines many great ideas, and can improve employee relations.
Respect your employer.
Always remember you are representing their business so you need to be respectful of the company at all times. Listen to instructions, follow company policies, be courteous, and never talk back or ill of your employer. Showing respect goes a long way.
Nothing speaks louder than being dependable and keeping your word. Carefully listen to instructions, and follow through with what has been asked of you. If you don’t think you can accomplish something in the required time, speak up. Always keep your word, as trust is vital in the workplace.
Unfortunately some jobs won’t always go your way, so it is helpful to have an open mind and be adaptable. If you’re against change, it may make it difficult to find a place for you within the company in the long run. Be open to trying new things, working new shifts, and learning new skills as this will also benefit you.
Nothing can replace the value of hard work. There are many people that just view work as a nine to five and only do the bare minimum, but you always need to have productive attitude and look for what more you could be doing. No matter the task, you need to have passion and go the extra mile. For example, if you finish your task ahead of schedule, go find another project you can start working on.
Have a positive attitude.
No matter what you have going on in your home life, you need to shake that off and come into work every day with a positive attitude. Your positive energy will be contagious to those around you which makes for a more positive work place.
There are many other traits to being an outstanding employee, but the most important thing to focus on every day is how you can contribute your best self to this company and job. With that mindset you will succeed and be a True All Star Employee.
