Career coaching and development
I would add promotion opportunities.
A quiet place to relax would be nice. For example sofas, relaxing music, a lot of flower pots, perhaps a fish tank:) (for a big office). We’ve got a “relax” room at work, however it is anything but a place to relax, too many people, too much noise.

– Quiet and peaceful so i can focus.- Natural lighting with a view ideally.- Non cluttered work space (so larger desk/table). – Modern fittings and furniture, with pot plants and just a good vibe to the place. (I find old buildings and furniture can really take away from a good vibe.)
I am not sure I’ve understood everything here because of the amount of info in the post. Anyhow, thanks!
Wow, awesome blog layout! How long have you been blogging
for? you made blogging look easy. The overall look of your website is excellent, let alone
Greetings! I know this is kinda off topic nevertheless I’d figured I’d ask.
Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest authoring a blog article or vice-versa?
My blog goes over a lot of the same subjects as yours and I feel
we could greatly benefit from each other. If you’re interested feel free to shoot me an e-mail.
I look forward to hearing from you! Awesome blog by the way!
As I am writing this I am sitting on my very own chair in my very own office with a window overlooking one of the Europe’s largest shopping centres, based in central(ish) London. People in the yard underneath my office are making sure that all the customer orders are being fulfilled to the best standards. It is Saturday and normally I would not be here but this time of the year there is a lot of activity in the retail world.
Have I achieved success in life? Well, from the career point of view I guess it could have been worse. I was born in a small town that I can bet nobody reading this has heard about: Kutno, central Poland. This detail is in no way significant in this context, but why I have decided to mention it is that during the first thirteen (or so) years of my life I never once thought that I would ever live outside of my country. I was an average student, not great but not bad either with no clear plans for the future. Well, that is not true, in the early childhood I did dream of being a combine harvester operator. By the time I was nine Poland changed from communism to capitalism and suddenly the rat race started. My parents could not keep up and thus our family became rather poor.
When I was thirteen I realised that I do have a talent, or maybe an interest: foreign languages, especially English. English was not taught at my primary school and my parents could not afford private lessons. I did what I could, though. I always say that if you really want to learn a foreign language you can do this by studying chocolate bar wrappers. You check the words in the dictionary, you try to make out grammar rules behind the sentences used to describe the product and so on. I was pretty good at this and when I started my secondary school at the age of 14 I was the best in my class despite the fact that I was the only one that had never learnt English in an institutionalised way. Yes, luckily for me and to my delight my secondary school had the English language as part of its curriculum. From that point onwards the idea of living in an English-speaking country started forming in my head. At that moment, though, my fascination with rap music, American Basketball Association and Grapes of Wrath made USA my dream destination. That was only going to change several years later, when my childish fascination with America practically disappeared and instead I started being attracted by our European sophistication. It was natural then that I wanted to live in Great Britain, where I moved in 2006 after I graduated from two universities while teaching English to support myself, married the love of my life and passed an LGV license test. Why an LGV license? Because I knew that in the UK my university qualifications would not impress anybody and I would have to start my career from the bottom.
As it happened, after I passed my test I have never even sat in a lorry cab as instead I started delivering groceries for a well-known UK company. They use 3.5 tonne vans so a standard car licence would have been enough. Finding the job was easy as the recruitment took place in Warsaw, Poland. There was no talk of any recession in the UK at that time and companies had to reach out to find employees. I was employed by an agency and when I arrived in a small town in Surrey in November 2006 I had no idea where I was. Different role-playing video games spring to mind, where a character starts their quest by only seeing the immediate surroundings on the screen and everything else is blackened out. This is how I felt.
I started training as a delivery driver and I did not even drive on the wrong side of the road that many times. My first solo route took me to London and I was positively scared. Did I enjoy the job? No, not really. It is difficult to explain, but the role was both stressful and extremely boring. I was looking at people in the company who were doing something else, anything else, but I did not even dream of changing roles as I was a foreigner with a strong accent. However, when after 3 months an opportunity of becoming a Team Leader appeared, I applied without hesitation. I was rather surprised when I got the job and at the same time I found out that I was valued as a member of the team. I had never seen myself as a manager and even at that point I thought that being a Team Leader was most probably the final step in my career. A teacher? Maybe. A manager? They are not cool, they dismiss people. However, 6 months later the company structures were being reorganised and I used this opportunity to be promoted again. It was not a huge promotion but that role involved coordinating shifts and sometimes I was even considered a member of the management team. I think it was at this time when I caught the proverbial bug and since then I have felt this unexplainable urge to be more and more senior. It is unexplainable as money has never been the main reason, nor was power. I think that the reason for applying for better and better jobs is a mixture of being bored with the current position and, frankly speaking, competitiveness.
Anyway, after 2 years of being a coordinator I became a deputy manager, then a manager. In 2013 I started being considered a senior manager as I was successful at my application for a deputy site manager. I was 31 at that time. Because of the results I was able to achieve, one year later I got my own depot, the one in London, where I am placed to this day. So far I am the youngest depot manager this company has ever had. I am also the first foreign depot manager. I do not enjoy talking too much about my achievement but my understanding is that this essay is about motivating others, so I can honestly say that I am proud with what I have achieved (well, at least as far as my career is concerned). Others will disagree and say that working long hours and spending precious time commuting to work is not what life was meant to be about. I do understand that point of view. Some call us the lemming generation: we work hard, we sacrifice a lot for our jobs (sometimes even families) and we are in a never-ending race, we sometimes die young. For that we can buy expensive cars, we own houses instead of renting them, we are financially secure, we are confident and we travel a lot. We can spend several hours writing a story like this one and nobody is going to question this. That is the choice.
It is up to you if you want to follow this path of life or not. If you do, you will need to work hard, you will need to stop thinking that the world owes you anything, you will need to stop making excuses as to why you cannot achieve success. If you come from a so-called disadvantaged background, so what? Few people I know come from a more disadvantages background than I do. When I am looking for people to work for me I look at their skills, knowledge and attitude. The most important element is the attitude. Remember about this while at work and while being interviewed for your next position.
So interesting and inspiring story, Pawel! It is great you have had dreams and have followed them. Definitely building successful career as emigrant is worth admiration. I have also lived and worked in another country and I know how tough it is but I do believe skillful and talented people can achieve success anywhere!

they create post headlines to grab viewers to click.
You might add a related video or a related pic or two
to get people excited about everything’ve written. Just my opinion, it could
bring your blog a little bit more interesting.
Is there anything else you can do to look for a job? Absolutely! In fact, the more diverse your job-hunting strategy, the more effective it’s likely to be.
The blogger s website traffic was mediocre at best, and a far cry from the high volume my client gets. So here s my question since when did travel bloggers become so entitled that they believe they deserve to get paid professional rates for what is, in my opinion, average writing at best and certainly not at the level of professional writers who would charge the same rate.
