It’s a sad fact that a good day can quickly turn in to a bad day if you are the victim of an accident in Wishaw. Accidents can happen at work and going through the right procedures can mean that the same thing won’t happen to your colleagues.
How to make friends with your colleagues after a bad start, and make an injury claim
Everyone wants their first few weeks in a new job to go well, so that they can enjoy the job almost from the start and fit in quickly. However, there are a million things that can go wrong on your first few days in a new job that may make it difficult for your colleagues to like you or for you to get along with your employer.
If you come in with a bad attitude, make a huge mistake in the first couple of days and so on, you may think that your days in the company are numbered, but this is not the case at all. It is always possible to save your reputation in a company, as long as you start to fix things as quickly as possible.
- Apologise. If you have done something wrong which has upset your colleagues, the only way you are going to be able to fix the situation is for you to apologise as quickly as you can, and be completely upfront and take responsibility for what you did. Most people won’t hold grudges as long as they feel that you are truly sorry for what has happened.
- Take it slow. Don’t try to force friendship on your colleagues right away or they are going to feel as though you are too much, and will actually avoid becoming friendly with you. Take it slowly and simply allow them to come to you by being friendly and available.
- Fix whatever you have done. If you have done something which has caused problems for the people in your office, then dealing with this is going to make it more difficult for them to become friendly with you right away. Offer to do whatever you can to fix the problem and help them to get things back on track.
- Learn from your mistakes. You might be forgiven for something, but if you then go and do it again you might lose your colleagues altogether. Once you have made a mistake learn never to do it again.
