Holiday Work Can Be a Good Thing

When asked to work a shift on a holiday, remember the benefits of doing so!

Are you working on holidays this year? If so, you aren’t alone. There are many industries that must keep running, no matter what day of the year it is. Health care, law enforcement, journalists, utility workers, even those in hospitality are expected to be available for shifts throughout the holiday season. KB Staffing appreciates those in the Polk County workforce who sacrifice time with their family and friends to help keep our society running smoothly. Whether you are scheduled to work Christmas day or you have the whole week off, here are some of the potential benefits of going in on a special day.

Working the Holidays Can Be a Good Thing
Most of us might grumble a little when asked to work on a major holiday, but KB Staffing wants to remind you of some of the perks of working those days, such as….

  • Extra money. Most employers will offer overtime pay for working a holiday – so stuff your pockets while you can! 
  • Earn recognition. Not everyone will volunteer to work on a holiday, so if you do, you will really stand out! 
  • An opportunity to lead. If the boss wants the day off, someone may need to fill in for him or her. This could be a great chance for you to show off your leadership skills.
  • Feel good about what you are doing. Try to keep a positive attitude about working on a day that you would rather be off by remembering that you are there to help customers, clients, or your co-workers. After all, this is the time of year when we put others’ wants and needs before our own.
