MN Business Tip Of The Day: Use It If You’ve Got It
TLC said it best, “I ain’t too proud to beg!” Okay not beg so much as take advantage of, but you get the point.
Too often employees hesitate to use the resources available to them or may not even know such resources exist. It’s important to be aware of all the tools that could help you push forward in your career and don’t apologize for using every single one of them.
Does your company have a mentoring program that you haven’t signed up for because you’re sure it couldn’t possibly help you? Is there a gym or theater ticket program you’ve also never take advantage of? Remember these all offer their own unique perks. Not only could you cultivate a hot bod by using your company’s gym but you can also connect with other colleagues or supervisors doing the same while at it. Snagging those discount theater tickets could be just the opening you need to invite a difficult co-worker out for a night on the town allowing you to smooth over that working relationship and making it a whole lot easier to get through that all-important project.
Take advantage of these opportunities and more while keeping an open mind and you’ll be surprised at how much forward momentum your career will achieve.
