When entering a new role in a light industrial job, a successful start can set the tone for the following months and years. A strong start makes a good first impression and can help you perform at the expected capacity quicker than the average new hire. As you can imagine, a successful start at your new job can have long-term benefits.

- Do your research before you even arrive.
- Reach out for confirmation or answers to any of your questions.
- Introduce yourself to your coworkers.
- Check-in with your manager for feedback and collaboration.

A Key Piece to Success: Make Connections
While those tips are still relevant in that first week (and beyond) one key piece that helps a new employee excel in a new role is to make connections within the company.
These connections don’t necessarily have to be personal, outside of work connections. What’s more important is the ability to know who to talk to when you need to.
3 Reasons Why You Need the Scaffold
When employees are familiar with each other and their roles, there is a greater sense of collaboration. Being able to brainstorm with one another or bounce ideas around for clarification can lead to better problem-solving.
Close the Skills Gap
New employees, or even those who transition into a new role, will often begin with a skills gap. Building connections with your team can help you close that gap and become a more productive employee faster. If you’re unsure of how to accomplish a task, find the person who can help you. Introducing yourself to others (like we wrote above) can help you find the best coworkers to close your skills gap.
Feel the Support
Starting a new role can be intimidating and uncomfortable. As you make connections with your coworkers, you will find those that you relate well to. You will find those who share your energy and personality, and this can be incredibly helpful when it comes to raising your comfort levels at work. Whether you feel their support during a stressful day or are able to enjoy a break with a friend, these connections can make a positive impact on your work and experience.
