    For the new employee should they trust the seniors or their own past experiencece?

    When it comes to a on going performing company they would have lots of senior staff and the company would be expanding and go for new diversion of business to which they keep on hiring the new employees. Though training is given initially the task in future must be attended by the new employee for sure. But here comes the twist. Should the new employee trust the seniors of the company for doubts and clarifications or rely on their own past experience? Most of the seniors may not part with all learning as they have their own fear of being over taken.

    It is always better to take your boss in confidence. It may happen sometimes that your initiative and skill would be helpful for achieving the higher targets of the management but before you apply such techniques in the practical dimensions, you need to discuss frankly with him regarding the usefulness of your ideas. Moreover, you need to identify the attitude of your boss. Sometimes your boss may be too rigid and he may not like your ideas. In such situations, you need to be tactful. You have to show your regard to your boss and follow the instructions as given by him. If you are not getting that much output, convince your boss to switch over the plannings as per your settings and show him how the different approach could yield a better achievements of the targets.

    For a new employee it is necessary that one keeps good relations with the seniors as well as the colleagues. A new employee for the initial 6 months of 1 year period will be in need of good advice, guidance, support, and help from not only colleagues but also from the seniors. The experienced seniors know a lot of tips and tricks of the game and learning those things from them is definitely a very good experience for any new employee. But the senior employees will not be parting away with that knowledge so easily. For that the new employee must obey them and have good and cordial relations with them. Most of the new employees learn in that way only.
    Knowledge is power.

    In my opinion, both are equally important. The employee might have learned how to behave with his seniors in the organisation. That experience should be used by the new employee while dealing with the seniors. Then he will get a good impression from his seniors in the new organisation also and will get good cooperation from them.
    The technical skills which were obtained while getting educated and while working in the other organisation are definitely useful for the employee in carrying out the tasks in this new organisation also.
    It is very important to maintain cordial relations with colleagues and seniors. That will help the individual in getting timely support from them. The culture of the organisation will vary from organisation to organisation. This should be understood by the new employee and mould himself accordingly. Then only he can shine in the new organisation.

    always confident

    For anyone, the first employment will be as a fresher. Experience, whatever be it comes only after being in a job for sometime.

    So let me start about the real new employee or new recruit who is a real fresher. Such employees have necessarily to trust their seniors and immediate superiors in learning the job. Even if they had underwent any orientation training they have to take the support of the senior colleagues at least till they get sufficient hands-on-experience to carry out the assigned job independently.

    But when it is a transfer, a lateral appointment or change of job or employer, then the new employee would have already some experience with him. He/She would have been appointed because of the experience. In such cases the new employee may not or need not depend on the existing employees in the new organisation. Such dependence may inhibit the new changes and improvements the new employee is expected to bring in for the job or organization.

    However except in some very rare cases, all jobs are team work in some way. Hence trusting team members -whether senior, or junior becomes imperative.

    As a fresher one must learn from one's senior how to work, however, if someone is a new employee of any company he/she should take instructions from his /her senior. It is always welcome to have cooperation from a senior despite having vast experience in his curriculum vitae. He/she should make a place in the sight of his/her senior and encourage the senior to give any extra responsibility to him.
    One who is always active in performing assigned tasks or duties certainly leaves a good impact on one's senior. Every employee whether he/she is junior or senior must impress management by his/her hardworking and other qualities to get a promotion in near future.

    Everything in this world is based on the trust on others. We trust the driver of a car or bus though we do not know him before. We trust the employer till the month end that he will give the salary at the end of the month and believe assured that he would not terminate us on any day.
    Coming to the point of the author, the trusting senior in an employment is essential as his/her own past experience may differ in that company. But at the same time, the seniors should avail the opportunity of guiding or training the subordinates without any second thought in his or her mind. It has been seen in some organisations, the seniors are hesitate to train or guide the subordinates or new comers. For this in big companies there is a training department.
