Teleperformance jobs – When applying to any job, we know that being interviewed can be challenging.
However, after you accept the proposal, there is still a final challenge: the team.
Nowadays, being a Swiss army knife is more important than ever. However, becoming a master of all trades won’t bring you success if you are unable to work and be part of a team. Yet, before you raise the teamwork flag, it’s important to know how you to approach a multicultural team before joining. So if you’re searching for Teleperformance jobs, here are 5 easy steps to follow if you join the multicultural family!
Understanding cultural differences
We all come from different places with distinct customs and sometimes, with different ways of thinking and there is no problem with that, on the contrary. Teleperformance jobs are many and diverse, that’s why we are a team of more than 10.000 and being part of such a big multicultural family is all about respecting and understanding these differences. As a true team member, it’s crucial not to look down on anyone who doesn’t confirm with your beliefs. Gaining a solid understanding of key cultural aspects of your team is a valuable way to earn their acceptance.
Treat everyone fairly
Who doesn’t like to be treated fairly, right? Regardless of religion, way of thought, cultural or ethnic backgrounds, everyone has to be treated in a fair manner. It’s possible that, due to the many Teleperformance jobs we have, you will be asked to pick a partner to help you with a specific project, the person chosen should be the one with the best capabilities for that specific task. Choosing the person you like the most, instead of the one most suitable, could result in tension within the team and a wrong pre-conceived idea of who you are.
Some people need special attention
Although treating everyone the same way is important, there are people who need special attention. Keep in mind that, as we said earlier, all people are different so when you join a multicultural team you’ll find people with different personalities, some introvert and others extroverts. If you’re talking with a colleague with minimal English skills, which does not negatively affect his work, it’s important to support that person more, give them time to communicate at their own speed. Being aware of a person’s need for space or comfort to communicate is crucial so always take that in consideration without invading their comfort zone.
Don’t let clashes ruin your work environment
We all have experienced an argument between colleagues and we all try to avoid it. If you find yourself in the middle of one, be the voice of reason and instill, become a calm presence with the goal of easing the tension without forcing it. Remember, a team with mutual respect stays together in good and bad times.
Whatever culture you belong, always be respectful and sincere. This is essential in any environment, especially in a team. By practicing honesty and respect, not only will you win people over but in turn, people will try to accommodate you quickly and as much as possible. The result: you will gain much more than colleagues!
In short, when joining a team, always remember that diversity is what makes us unique: a huge family from each corner of the globe, all working together to reach the same goal!
