So you’ve been working with your current roofing company for a good while now, and perhaps you’ve noticed your motivation and interest is slowly dwindling. Maybe you feel as though your mindset isn’t being challenged enough and your skills overlooked?
The roofing industry is one of the biggest trades in the world, and there are 63,000 roofers in the UK alone. You shouldn’t feel nervous about a change of scenery as there’s plenty of other opportunities out there, but you do need to be sure that it’s the right move for you.
Here are 3 simple signs that may indicate you’re ready to work for a new roofing company.
You’re constantly watching the clock
Do you remember those days when your alarm would ring and you’d wake up feeling optimistic? You were excited about the day ahead, and you’d turn up to each roofing project with a smile on your face and a skip in your step.
Now you’re constantly flicking your gaze to your wrist, watching the clock and wondering how to make time go faster. Forbes challenges you to stop and ask yourself if there’s a better way to live at work.
The answer? Of course.
You feel invisible
It’s a universal fact that nobody, and we mean nobody, likes working in an environment in which they feel as though they’re constantly being overlooked. Do you finish your hours and leave the site everyday wondering if your opinions, efforts, and contributions were even acknowledged?
This factor can (and will!) negatively affect your morale and work performance. Why would you want to stay somewhere so discouraging when there are other roofing firms out there that will provide the opposite?
You no longer relate to the firm’s values
Starting with a new roofing firm is always an exciting time, and we bet you once felt pure joy to announce that you were a roofer at your company.
Has that feeling dissolved?
Everyone in every industry deserves to work for an organisation that makes them proud. Pinpointing why you’ve come to feel this way may be helpful, such as recognising a failing new management system or a negative and rapid decline in your company’s reputation.
Findley Roofing & Building, roofers in Gateshead and elsewhere across the North East, are the biggest domestic roofing and building company in the North of England. Their £7.7m annual turnover is a reflection of the 2,200 customers who choose to use their services every year. This is an example of a company that truly values their employees and customers.
There are better roofing companies out there so you shouldn’t feel nervous about walking away and starting somewhere fresh. If you’ve related to all three of these signs, or even just two, it’s a good indication that your time at your current firm is over. If there’s greater out there, why not find it?
