Part of the TFT Family on Day One!


Starting a new job is always a bit daunting, no matter what level you come in at… You find yourself no doubt asking ‘did you make the right decision? What will the culture be like? Will the work be interesting? Will they like you? Will you like them?!’ Not to mention trying to learn everyone’s names, how to work new systems and where to find the cups/toilets/stationary…

With all this going through my mind, I was impressed and immediately at ease due to the warm reception I received from my new colleagues. It seemed every single person said hi to me … I even got calls from staff in other offices to welcome me and offer support if and when I needed it. When I spoke to my team they told me this happened to them too!

What a difference this genuine response made to me – it definitely isn’t something you come across every day!

Now, when we new staff arrive, I think of this and it reminds me to go that little bit further to make them immediately feel like part of the TFT family!
