How to remain friends after an accident at work compensation claim
Being injured in the workpalce can be a traumatic and distressing episode in a persons life. If you have had the misfortune to have been hurt at work and it wasn’t your fault you may be feeling wary about claiming accident at work compensation in Cheshire West and Chester. Having the support of loyal friends and work collegues can help to make all the difference. You should choose friends who encourage you but protect you as well, and that can help you to do the things that you want to do most.
When it comes to choosing work friends, this is even more true, as the people you ally yourself with will be the ones who help you to get where you want to go in your career. You should start thinking about who you want to be friends with from your first day, but here are some of the things you should be looking for or avoiding.
- Don’t befriend the boss. Not only does it look suspicious to your colleagues, it can also look a bit unlikely to your boss as well, if you are trying to get them to be your friend in the office. Unless you are already friends when you start to work there, your boss is supposed to have a line between them and you, and you should honour this
- Choose people you work closely with. Try to befriend the people that you will see and talk to every day. These people have the power to make your work days bearable, or miserable. If you ignore them or don’t make the effort to be friendly, you may find yourself feeling very lonely.
- Befriend great contacts. Other than the people in the office, you should be making the effort to be friendly to and build up a rapport with the people that you come into contact with over email on a daily basis, such as clients and other companies. These people will be great contacts in the future.
