All relationships, including those of employers and employees, involve expectations and conflicts tend to occur when expectations are not met.
When you start a new job, you should try to make sure you have a clear understanding of what your new employer expects of you.
The most common employer expectations include:
- a positive attitude
- continual learning
Familiarising yourself with the etiquette of the work place you are about to enter and presenting yourself in a professional manner will be important to make a great first impression.
It's also important to give some thought to what you expect of your new employer.
Employee expectations include:
- the timely and accurate payment of wages
- adequate training
- safe working conditions
- full explanation of all company policies and especially of your job responsibilities
- fair and constructive feedback from your supervisor.
