Today’s guest post is courtesy of Nicole Neves, a former Kronos intern who has joined our HR department as an employee. In her post below, Nicole reflects on the impact her internship had on her decision to join Kronos and how her new position will allow her to make an impact on the workforce of the future – who, according to this article from the New York Times, need all the help they can get.
Will Smith said in an interview several years ago, “If you’re not making someone else’s life better, then you are wasting your time. Your life will become better by making other people’s lives better.” That quote instantly came to my mind after viewing the “1 in One Hundred Million” video. In the workforce there are millions of people contributing to making someone else’s life better. Whether you are a developer, a salesman, a firefighter, a chef, an engineer or a recruiter, you are giving back to the organization you work for making their lives and their customers lives better.
This quote made me appreciate my job and the technology Kronos has to offer. We cater to the needs of nearly any industry to make managing their employees easier. At Kronos I was recently hired in the College Relations department. During the interview I was asked what interested me in the job. I told the interviewer that I wanted to help mold the lives and careers of students entering the workforce by giving them an unbelievable experience in the Kronos Internship Program. At that moment it dawned on me that the program can truly impact the future workforce and that’s a remarkable feeling. Take a second to reflect on the organization you work for and how you contribute, you’d be amazed how much more rewarding your projects and everyday tasks at work will become. And don’t forget to appreciate the work done by others because together we are all making a difference.
