How to Improve Job Satisfaction?

June 3rd, 2014 by Rozee Team

Question from an Employer

With cut-throat competition these days, it is very hard to satisfy all employees. I often find a few of my employees facing issues of dissatisfaction and anxiety. This is immensely affecting their performance at work. I want to handle the situation and resolve this problem. Can you help me find ways to increase their job satisfaction?

Saniya Amjad (Madhouse Clothing)

Answer from ROZEE.PK

Dear Saniya Amjad,

Do you ever think how much easier your job would be if all of the employees were contented? If all the staff you network with loved their jobs, you’d probably love yours more as well. There are some workers that are determined to be dour at work, most employees would appreciate your efforts to make them happier on the job.

Job is a choice of everyone living and sustaining their family. As most of the people spend a major part of their adulthood at work, job satisfaction is an important element of individual well-being. It is a result of employee’s perception of how well their job provides those things that are viewed as important.

Here are a few simple ways to inspire employees and escalate employee satisfaction: Read More »

Consider the consequences of poor work-life balance, there will be fatigue, lost time with friends and loved ones, if you regularly work extra hours, you might be given more responsibility which could lead to additional concerns and challenges. Possibly employees will start leaving that environment soon.

Consider the following ideas to find the work-life balance that’s best for you

Dealing With Difficult People At Work?

June 2nd, 2014 by Rozee Team

Dealing With Difficult People At WorkEver met someone who irritates you to an extent that you feel like you want to pull your hair, jump around? Don’t worry you’re not alone. There’s no way to escape difficult people you meet at work or in business. We all have had our fair share of difficult people over the years. It happens to everyone. There are people who want things their way or the high way, then there are people who don’t turn in their work on the due dates, then some who push back on work that they’re responsible for, people who don’t show up for meetings and so many more. You often have clients who are NEVER happy. So, dealing with all these kind of people can be a difficult task and the most challenging still is the fact that you cannot do anything or say anything to change them. All you can do is act professionally and deal with them in such a way that it doesn’t create any misunderstandings.

Not Getting Interview Calls?

January 16th, 2014 by Rozee Team

Getting a rejection may not be as disastrous as you think. It Waiting-for-Call-Back-Interviewcould be very fruitful for the time to come. But, many times we don’t realize things that we can’t see.

Often a job seeker believes that he is the perfect candidate for a vacancy. However, he is hit with a shock when another applicant gets the job. It often happens. Even with the perfect education and experience and a perfect portfolio to brag the skills, things can go the unexpected way. It is definitely not the ideal case but this situation can prove to be prolific in future when you try for other jobs.

Read on to see why some potential job seekers miss on the opportunities and how the problems could be corrected.

A Cover Letter…Icing on the Cake

A well-shaped Cover Letter can make a difference. It could make you stand out in the crowd and make you the lucky one who gets selected. As it is rightly said that the first impression is the last impression, a cover letter is the first impression that is cast upon the employer as he starts reviewing your application. A cover letter is the company’s first exposure to you. It decides whether your application lands in the trash bucket or is shortlisted.

While writing a cover letter, don’t go the traditional orthodox way with “Dear Sir/Madam” followed by a generic script. The cover letter has to say something that makes you different from the rest of the applicants and it makes you a promising candidate. Don’t just copy and paste the conventional lines; be yourself and let yourself shine in the Cover Letter. Read More »
