It’s Okay to Reap the Rewards of Giving Back to the Community

b loehr - givingYou have to admit getting involved in the local Little League program, the Boys’ and Girls’ Club, Junior Achievement or (you fill in the blank) has been fun. And rewarding too. But last night when you crashed into bed exhausted from a marathon day, those feel good vibes from “giving back” were running on empty – just like you were. And one question loomed large in your tired mind. “Why am I doing this again?”

Of course, volunteering isn’t about what’s-in-it-for-me. You know that. But still, recognizing the benefits reaped from community involvement would be welcome right about now.

Indeed, the benefits are many, and it’s okay if the rewards help spur your volunteer efforts. After all, you’re only human. So keep this list handy for the next time that very small part of you quietly questions, “What’s in it for me?”

1. Chance to Meet New People
Often our busy lives confine us to specific circles of people: coworkers, neighbors, church congregation, families of the children’s friends, etc. Volunteering is a great way to broaden our “people” horizons and expand the opportunities to:

• Network with those in related industries
• Find people with similar hobbies or interests
• Meet the new guy from the next block who’s also looking for someone to jog with

2. Avenues to Gain Knowledge
Want to give your career, any career, a boost? Choose to be a life-long learner. Similar to the “people” circles noted in #1, a chosen profession usually comes with a “box” of knowledge that centers around one or two main components. Volunteering will naturally expose you to knowledge outside of your “box” as you connect with people from a wide range of professions. Imagine the possibilities such as this conversation starter. “I’ve always wanted to learn more about ___________. What can you tell me about your job?”

3. Opportunities to Expanded Experiences
While you may not foresee a job or career change in the near future, the truth is you never know when an opportunity or crisis may push you in a brand new direction. Experience gained while volunteering can open doors you never expected to face. Welcome any and all new opportunities that come your way through community volunteering because who knows what the future holds?

4. Provides a “Test Run”
Maybe you’ve always, secretly, harbored the idea of a career in theater or event planning or interior design. Especially if this carefully guarded notion is lightyears from your current career, how awesome – and wise – would it be to explore this would-be field via a volunteer position. Uh, very. So before resigning your job, enrolling in a course of study, or trashing the idea altogether, give this secret ambition a whirl by seeking a trial run through community involvement.

5. Transition into Retirement Years
Even if you’re years from retirement, it’s never too soon to think about how you’ll spend those golden years. Whether it’s because of the need for additional income or simply because of the desire for “something to do”, many retirees find themselves revisiting past connections and experiences. The people, knowledge, and experiences gained through years of service to the community can easily translate into a blessing after retirement.

At B. Loehr Staffing we applaud the efforts of citizens to “give back” to their communities through various avenues of volunteering. We also recognize how these experiences contribute to the skills candidates bring to the hiring table. Contact us today about the many advantages of a position with B. Loehr Staffing.

Why Should I Get Involved in My Community?

b loehr - givingEveryone wants to live in a good, safe, thriving community, and few will argue against the importance of strong community connections especially for families. But strong communities don’t just happen. And it takes more than simply electing upstanding community officials and paying them a fair wage to do their jobs.

It’s a fact. Strong, vital communities do not become strong, vital communities without the support, energy, and efforts of local citizens.

If you’ve been waffling over the idea of little ‘ole you getting more involved in the community, consider these motivations for pursuing opportunities to “give back.”

  1. Volunteering provides a chance to experience something bigger than yourself

There’s something about doing /giving/serving without any expectation or assumption of receiving in return that is so inspiring and satisfying that it defies explanation. While some would argue that human beings are not capable of such altruistic actions, many more can attest to the truth that giving without condition is rewarding beyond measure. It’s one of those things you probably have to experience to understand. So pick a cause or organization and get to it.

  1. The rewards of giving “time” last longer than writing a “check”

“But why can’t I just give money? Don’t they need money?” Yes, they probably do need money. But why not hand-deliver that generous donation, and while you’re there, check the place out. Find out what else they need besides cash. The more you give of your talents, skills, time, energy, creativity – the more you give of you – the greater your connection and empathy will be for the mission and purpose of the organization.

  1. A new perspective is priceless

 Have you ever driven by the soup kitchen, the free food pantry, or clothes closet and wondered who even utilizes those services? Do you question why your co-worker tutors kids after school? Then it’s safe to say your perspective could use a bit of refreshing. In our fast-paced lives, it’s so easy to develop tunnel vision that barely acknowledges the existence of people and circumstances beyond our own.

  1. Your efforts will save the community’s resources

Every hour that volunteers contribute saves local communities money. Those saved funds can be funneled toward improvements and innovations that benefit the entire community. It’s estimated every volunteer hour saves the community $15.39. Now do that math. That’s a whole lot of money that can be channeled toward keeping your community a strong, thriving place to raise a family.

  1. You DO have something to offer

If you’re thinking, “But what can I do?” stop that line of questioning right now. Absolutely do not let a lack of special skills rob the community of your involvement. Virtually anyone can pick up trash at the park, read a book to kids, work the concessions booth at the festival, and the list goes on. It’s practically endless. Start small but do start. Because when everyone does something, the impact is enormous.

B. Loehr Staffing prides itself on the caliber of our pool of candidates. Their involvement across the community have helped to make St. Louis metropolitan area a stronger and better community. Contact us today about joining our team of outstanding candidates.

 

 4 Tips for Beating Procrastination

b loehr - procrastinationThe “simple” definition for procrastinate, according to Merriman-Webster.com is:

“To be slow or late about doing something that should be done: to delay doing something until a later time because you do not want to do it, because you are lazy, etc.”

Ouch, lazy? That cuts pretty deep. I mean everyone procrastinates from time-to-time, right? It’s part of being human, right?

Webster’s “full” definition leaves out that ugly four-letter word.

  1. To put off intentionally and habitually
  2. To put off intentionally the doing of something that should be done

Still not a pretty picture.

Did you know there is a science to why people procrastinate? According to the UPMC Healthbeat, there’s a chemical reason we prefer relaxing activities versus those “have to” things that we find so easy to put off. The intense urge to avoid work by focusing on more pleasant or satisfying activities is an actual  battle between the limbic system and the prefrontal cortex. The prefrontal cortex is less developed and thus weaker, so often the limbic system wins out, leading to procrastination.”

Before you get all kicked-back and in the so-it’s-not-my-fault-at-all zone, consider the very real pitfalls of procrastination. For instance, putting things off can cause stress later when you have to double or triple-time it. And we all know how stress wreaks havoc on your overall health – your immune system in particular – not to mention how relationships between stressed out people suffer.

Factor in the bad rap your reputation will get. Also, how repeatedly succumbing to procrastination will squash both your drive to succeed and the likelihood of realizing your dreams. And those are but a few of the myriad ways procrastination can lead to trouble.

Understanding the science behind procrastination is all well and good, but what most of us need are practical tips for beating procrastination.

  1. Dismiss the notion of perfection

 If you’re waiting for everything to line up perfectly before diving into whatever it may be, just don’t. Not only will you accomplish next to nothing, but you’re giving procrastination a foothold in your life. Get your ducks in a row as best you can – then dive in.

  1. Change things up

 Realize that different environments have a huge impact on your productivity. A writer friend of mine finds one distraction after another at home, but can buckle down at the corner coffee shop where laundry, dishes, and a million other chores are not front and center.

  1. Remember how to eat an elephant?

 Big tasks or projects often saddle you with a crippling sense of being overwhelmed before you even get started. Which makes it ten times harder to get started. So, break the assignment into bite-sized pieces . . . Err, smaller tasks. And make it a priority to bask in the sense of accomplishment, for just a wee bit, after each step.

  1. Create the adult equivalent to a sticker chart

Remember the sticker chart that worked wonders to get your preschooler to behave? That same reward principle can work for adults too. Establish little reward incentives along the way then treat yourself to something special when the task is finished, on time in a quality manner.

Get a grip on procrastination before it becomes the middle name that even the dog knows you by.

 The Best Summer Ever

b loehr - summerA couple of months ago over lunch, a friend and I made plans to get together this summer to brainstorm this idea that had mulled around in my brain for years. “I think you’re on to something here,” he’d said, encouraging the tiny spark to flicker brightly once again.

While I would have loved to get him on board and make some headway in turning this idea into something tangible, I filed the “get together this summer” comment in the same faraway place where all the other this-summer-let’s-do conversations ended up—never to be heard from again.

So I was totally blown away when in mid-May he called and announced, “Let’s get those brainstorming sessions on the calendar. You mentioned Wednesdays are good for a long lunch, right?” I mumbled something unintelligible, too stunned to form a coherent sentence. Undaunted, he continued. “Sorry I didn’t call sooner, but I saved every other Wednesday. I figure by the end of summer, we’ll be ready to make a presentation.”

Now words really failed me. But somehow the conversation had continued. The proof now stared back at me from my calendar in two-hour lunch blocks on half the Wednesdays through June, July, and August that bore the notation “lunch w/Brian”.

That first Wednesday, I not only picked up the lunch tab but thanked him profusely for making time for me in what had to be an incredibly busy summer schedule. After all, whose summer schedule wasn’t busy?

“Yeah, we have a lot going on. But this project is important to me.”

“Aren’t you coaching Little League, too? I don’t know how you fit everything into your schedule. Summers fly by so fast that it seems like I blink and it’s over.”

And then he shared his secret to making every summer the best summer ever: get it on the calendar.

“Used to be like that for us too. All these hopeful plans that never came to fruition. Then a couple of years ago we got serious about planning our summers. Now in early May—actually started in April this year—we grab the calendar and begin plotting out all the stuff we want to do. The fun things like outings to the zoo and the kids’ games as well as the not-so-fun stuff like painting the deck. We try to knock out all the major chores around the house by the end of May, so we have more time to enjoy summer.”

I’m sure my mouth hung open in a most unflattering pose as he detailed how the calendar had become their secret weapon for making the most of the summer. And thankfully, he shared some awesome time-saving tips that help them squeeze every spare minute out their summers.

  • His wife does a huge grocery stock-up the first week of June to cut back on all those annoying emergency runs to the store.
  • He hires a couple of teens from the neighborhood to help with the major lawn care.
  • They established a family chore time that has incentivized the kids to pitch in because when the job’s done, they take a family bike ride to get ice cream.
  • They offer double allowances to any child willing to take on additional, age-appropriate household responsibilities that free up some time for mom and dad.
  • Each family member gets to suggest an outing for the family to enjoy together.

On the way home, I swung by the office supply store and purchased a calendar with huge blocks for writing in summer activities. Then after dinner, I called our first “best summer ever” calendar planning session.

Preparing for Generation Z – Part II

b loehr - gen zGeneration Z has been dubbed “the reality-check generation,” a title they earned as a result of expectations and aspirations tempered by uncertain economic conditions during their formative years. By the year 2020, they’ll make up 20% of the workforce.

Like their predecessors the Millennials, they value creativity and innovation, but they place greater importance on stability and are seen as more pragmatic than Generation Y. They will arrive in the job market looking to build their careers on a solid foundation, and they’ll need managers who understand them to help them get off to the right start.

What should companies expect from Generation Z?

• While many businesses boast of friendly workplace cultures, flexible schedules, and transparent salaries to pique the interest of potential candidates, it appears more career focused perks will get the nod from Gen Z.

Today’s college students ranked opportunity for career growth as the most important aspect of their first job (36%) followed by fulfilling work (19%) and stability (19%). Friendly work environments (10%), flexible schedules (7%), and the highest salary (6%) rank lower in priority.

To attract the top talent in Generation Z, companies will have to demonstrate an interest in and ability to assist their employees in reaching their most important career goals.

• While it’s expected the job-hopping tendencies of Millennials will carry over to the next generation, Gen Zers’ yearning for stability and the establishment of a firm career foundation will provide employers with some ammunition in the retention war.

Companies who make effective and frequent training a priority and who strive to offer a variety of professional development opportunities will realize the greatest opportunity for maintaining a steady, qualified workforce.

It might come as a surprise that this i-everything generation places a high value on key relationships. Being fluent in a world of social media, text messages and email hasn’t usurped their desire for genuine conversations and connections, especially with those in places of authority over them.

They long to be taken seriously, to have their energy and enthusiasm encouraged rather than stamped down. They fear that older generations won’t give them a chance as they actively seek to be part of a team that will embrace their knowledge and skills. They want the opportunity to present their ideas and to join forces with employers who share their passions.

Generation Zers will find their niche within companies who value employee development, who encourage and appreciate their drive to climb the ladder, and who take employee engagement seriously. Companies who aren’t too afraid to embrace this promising generation will benefit from this generation’s technological savvy as well as their focus on continual learning.

B. Loehr Staffing is already striving to attract top-notch talent from among the brightest and best of Generation Z. Allow our staffing experts to match these rising young stars with your company’s open positions. Contact us today.

Preparing for Generation Z – Part I

If you’ve yet to meet the newest crop of kids on the block, it’s time to get acquainted with them.  Meet Generation Z, born in the mid-1990s through approximately 2010. Though the bulk of this generation are still in high school – or younger, a full 15% are pursuing bachelor’s degrees, almost 10% are in some stage of vocational education, 3% are pursuing master’s degrees, and 3% have already joined the workforce.  These Gen Zers will burst upon the global workforce in the coming years, bringing with them a mighty wave of change.

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, Gen Z currently makes up 25% of the population. They outnumber their older siblings, the Millennials, by nearly one million.

Generational studies are considered more art than science, as proven by the differing opinions for what birth years make up this newest segment of the population. Still, valuable insights can be gleaned from a look at the national and worldwide landscape around which this generation matured.

Many experts label Millennials as the “innocence lost” generation, having grown up during the boom times and relative peace of the 1990s, only to see their sunny world dashed by the September 11 attacks and the economic crashes of 2000 and 2008. Generation Zers, however, don’t remember a time before September 11, the war on terror and the recession-ridden 2000’s. Therefore, they tend to be more cautious and less entitled than the dissected-to-death Millennials.

To say this segment of the workforce is internet savvy doesn’t quite cut it. Sure, their predecessors, Generation Y, also grew up in an online/cellular phones world. They were considered “digital natives,” but most Generation Zers have always had a computer in their pocket next to their smartphone—which has always been “smart.”

“We are the first true digital natives,” said Hannah Payne, an 18-year-old U.C.L.A. student and lifestyle blogger. “I can almost simultaneously create a document, edit it, post a photo on Instagram and talk on the phone, all from the user-friendly interface of my iPhone.”

Maybe your head is spinning while trying to imagine that scenario, and it could be you admit to no one but yourself that you’ve yet to figure out half the features on your smartphone.

So, what can you expect from this new generation as they join the workforce? Stay tuned for next week’s post as we explore what lies ahead for the workplace in Part 2 of Preparing for Generation Z.

At B. Loehr Staffing we understand how challenging it is to have the right people in the right places.  Through our specially designed Staffing Systems and Management Programs, you can be sure of finding the staffing solution that suits your organization’s specific needs.

Interview Tips for Recent College Grads – Part 2

It’s projected that throughout the 2015–16 school year, colleges and universities will award 952,000 associate’s degrees; 1.8 million bachelor’s degrees; 802,000 master’s degrees; and 179,000 doctor’s degrees. These numbers reflect increases in three of the four categories with a slight decrease noted in bachelor degrees.

That’s a whole lot of grads searching for a job. If this scenario is playing out in your life, don’t let these statistics cause you to despair.  According to a new survey from CareerBuilder, two-thirds of employers plan to hire from this year’s crop of college graduates, up two percentage points from 2015, making this the rosiest outlook in a decade.

So check out these key interview do’s (last week we delved into key don’ts) and prepare for success in your future job interviews.

Do:

  • Make yourself stand out

How can you be memorable amongst a sea of qualified candidates? Consider a short video to introduce yourself, your experiences and passions. Put together a portfolio or other visual compilation of past achievements that relate specifically to this job.  Be sure to inject a bit of your personality.

  • Do your homework

Leave no stone unturned while uncovering what this company needs most right now. Talk with anyone you know on the inside. Check out the entire job opportunities listing within the company. Read through every word on their website and peruse recent news articles or press releases for morsels of information. Determine how you can be a solution to an issue they’re facing and highlight during the interview why you’re a great fit to help the company achieve its goals.

  • Prepare a Reverse Interview

Rather than wait for the interviewer to ask for your questions at the conclusion of the interview, ask probing questions throughout the meeting. Why? Because such questions will demonstrate your interest in the position, your knowledge of the industry, and the potential enthusiasm you would bring to the job. So, prepare a set of specific questions you can ask of the interviewer, making them unique to this job opportunity.

  • Expect the unexpected

 Because many interviewers have changed things up when it comes to the how, when and where of interviews, a go-with-the-flow attitude will serve you well. That way, a “Let’s grab lunch while we chat,” request won’t ruffle your feathers. And when you enter the office to find not one, not two, not three but FOUR people waiting for your arrival, you’ll not faint dead away. Your response to an out-of-the-ordinary approach will be on display so make a positive impression backed by a genuine smile.

B. Loehr Staffing is eager to offer recent college graduates a job that aligns with their career goals and fits their lifestyle. We offer a competitive pay package as well as opportunities to increase your skills and experience. We’ve given you a heads up on interviews – now the ball is in your court. Contact us today.

 

Interview Tips for Recent College Grads – Part 1

??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????You’ve aced interviews in the past. That one for the cafeteria job your freshman year and just last winter you nabbed a spot on the groundskeeper’s crew after a very successful interview. When you think back, though, those interviews were pretty much a formality. Your roommate recommended you for kitchen prep – actually, she begged the manager to hire you so she’d have a friend on the work team. And with the early, snowy winter, the grounds keeping crew were short-handed, big time, so the interview lasted maybe four minutes before the supervisor pronounced you hired.

But now that your college days are behind you, and you’re officially on the prowl for a “real” job, the game has changed. This is the big leagues. The real deal. The realization that those past interviews did nothing to prepare you for landing a real-world, honest-to-goodness, 40-hour-per-week job causes your stomach to knot.

Don’t let the prospect of a job interview send you into a tailspin. With some preparation and attention to detail, you can successfully navigate a “real world” interview. This week we’ll delve into several key “don’ts” and continue with the “dos” in next week’s post.

Don’t:

  • Focus too heavily on college accolades

In the “real world” grades, extracurriculars, and such matter less than they did in your pre-graduation days. Of course, you’ve every reason to be proud of your accomplishments and will want to note them on your resume. But this potential employer will be most interested in how your knowledge and skills will translate into on-the-job know-how. Focus on the experiences that have prepared you for this position.

  • Focus on everything but the job itself

 It’s fine if the company “perks” have you psyched. The culture and benefits and the location – surrounded by awesome eateries – not to mention that cool coffee shop on the first floor. But none of these topics should dominate the interview conversation. You’ll make a much better impression if you focus on how you’ll give 110% to the job rather than drool over the vending machines. 

  • Forget about non-verbal communication

While interviews are mostly about talking, it’s crucial to be aware of the impression your body language makes. You want to come across as confident so don’t fidget or allow your eyes to dart around the room. Sit up straight and sit back rather than hover on the edge of your seat. You want to project enthusiasm so smile sincerely and focus on the conversation. Speak with “a smile in your voice.” 

  • Expect perfection

Even the best interview has its low points. The one question you dreaded the most, whose answer you stumbled over. The awkward silence when nary a coherent thought could find its way from your brain to your mouth. It happens to everyone at some point. So cut yourself some slack. If you go in accepting that something will probably not go exactly as you’d hoped or planned, you’re likely to be calmer and make fewer bloopers.

Stop by for next week’s post on key “do’s” for navigating successful job interviews.

At B. Loehr Staffing we are continually searching for the highest caliber candidates to become our employees. An interview with us might be that all-important first step in your new career.  Don’t waste another minute.  Contact us today.

The Many Benefits of Positive Thinking

b loehr - positiveWhether your attitude reflects a glass-half-full or glass-half-empty outlook, it will impact every aspect of your life. The benefits of positive thinking are particularly impactful on your health and overall well-being. In fact, a sunny disposition can increase lifespan, reduce the risk of death from cardiovascular disease, lower cholesterol and increase resistance to the common cold. Positive thinking lowers rates of depression, lessens stress, slows aging and improves coping mechanisms for dealing with the inevitable bumps in the road of life.

All of these benefits should be reason enough to strive for an optimistic outlook. But according to Barbara Fredrickson, a positive psychology researcher at the University of North Carolina, there’s even more to gain. An optimistic outlook can impact your job skills and create lasting, impactful value in your work life as well.

Fredrickson refers to this as the “broaden and build” theory. Positive emotions create a broadened sense of possibilities and open your mind to potential opportunities. This encourages a person to seek out, build and develop new skills and resources that can provide value across all areas of his/her life.

A sunny disposition is often accompanied by a can-do attitude, a characteristic that certainly makes an employee more desirable—not to mention more teachable/trainable and pleasant to be around. A positive thinker commonly appears on the list of most sought-after “soft skills”.

Many see positive thinking as simply a personality trait. While some folks are naturally more optimistic, those who find themselves prone to negativity don’t have to allow a pessimistic attitude to rule their lives. Choosing to shut down gloomy “self-talk”— the endless stream of unspoken thoughts that run through your head—can make a huge difference. Minimizing negative self-talk and intentionally redirecting one’s mental monolog paves the way for a more optimistic overall outlook.

While some of this ongoing internal conversation comes from logic and reason, some self-talk results from misconceptions or a lack of information. Get the facts—assuming almost always leads to a blurry picture—then refuse to allow a gloomy Gus attitude to sabotage a positive approach.

When life throws you a curb, it’s tempting—and takes little effort—to succumb to woe-is-me thinking. But fight the urge to expect the worst and focus instead on the bright side. Because expecting good things to happen actually increases the chances of a positive outcome.

So, Debbie Downer and Negative Ned, make way for Positive Patrick and Optimistic Olivia!

Be a Problem-Solving Employee

At the slightest setback in the day’s plans, Ms. K threw up her hands and backed away. “I can’t do this!” she exclaimed, her arms crossing defiantly over her chest as her head shook in firm agreement.

Cooler, calmer demeanors stepped in immediately – it was obvious this was not a first-time occurrence. The relatively minor issue was handled efficiently and effectively, with a minimum of raised eyebrows and widened eyes at their co-worker’s behavior, and the day proceeded.

This employee did not possess even the most basic of problem-solving skills. How long will she last in this position? Probably not long.

Problem solving combines logic and the knowledge of past experiences with an imaginative sense of “what if?” to dissect a situation and determine an intelligent solution. A number of important skills factor into successful problem-solving including resilience, analytical thinking and creativity, as well as a bent toward asking the kind of questions that dig below the surface and peel away the layers to get to the core issue.

Consider the IDEAL model, described by Bransford and Stein in their book Ideal Problem Solver. It breaks problem-solving into the following stages:

  • Identify the issue
  • Define the obstacles
  • Examine your options
  • Act on an agreed course of action
  • Look at how it turns out, whether any changes need to be made.

While the process sounds simple, it takes time – which is completely different, of course, from thumb twiddling to pass the time, so it looks as if you’ve invested deep thought into resolving the issue.

The best resolutions result from a purposeful, strategic process.

  • Identifying the problem must involve a thorough understanding of the situation. Minor glitches can be resolved with a brief run through of the above steps. But major issues often involve many contributing components that must be defined before they are addressed.
  • Define the obstacles – with pen and paper or a whiteboard, get a visual of every facet of the problem, listing even the most minute aspect. Make an effort to approach the situation from every angle.
  • Examine every possible option to ensure a great idea won’t be pushed aside because it appeared less than feasible. The first thought that enters your mind or comes up in the group setting discussion may not be the best solution. That’s okay. It’s this kind of thinking, reaching, and grasping that will ultimately lead to the best resolution.
  • Act – when it’s time to move, go for it. Forge ahead with confidence and resolve.
  • Look at the outcome – utilize the acronym ART that stands for Assess, Review, Tweak. Objectively assess the results, thoroughly review every part of the resolution, determine what tweaks will better the outcome.

Typically, problem solvers like to learn, can reason well, think creatively, aren’t fearful of decision making, and possess planning and organizational skills. A purposeful approach to dilemmas will make you a valued employee. So, if you lack in any of these crucial areas, choose one skill to work on and resolve to become a better problem solver.

At B. Loehr Staffing we value employees whose problem-solving skills set them apart from the crowd. It is the outstanding performance of our employees that has helped to build our reputation as a premier provider of quality staffing.
