Overview

Why be a
'Great Employee'

Let's face facts, the average person works 40 hours each week for 50 years, which adds up to 100,000 hours working in a lifetime. Work also takes up half of one's waking hours each workday. So when something occupies half your day for half a century, why wouldn't you want to get better... and be happier...at it?

And of course work performance is front and center in dictating job satisfaction, and determines your job advancement and financial goals too! Those who master the art of being Great Employees advance to much higher levels and earn a ton more money over their working life.
This book will not only show you how to increase your workplace success and happiness, but will also provide you with the secret weapon to landing your dream job in the 1st place.

What's in the Great Employee Book?

The 210 pages of How to be a Great Employee covers it all, every aspect of being a great employee and how to love your job. A few of the topics include 10 keys to job success, creating your workplace reputation, communication skills, dealing with difficult coworkers and coping with workplace stress. The book teaches in an easy to learn, fun and often humorous way. The 200 plus cartoons will have you laughing out loud while the tips, tricks and lessons will be invaluable to your job success.

Getting Your Dream Job...Meet Your Secret Weapon!

Competition for great jobs is furious, so to be 'that applicant' who grabs the eye of a Human Resource manager, you need an edge...and we have a Great One!

It's a Certificate of Completion and Accomplishment in "Workplace Effectiveness Training." Once you read the book and pass a short multiple choice quiz (it takes just 5 minutes to take and you can retake the quiz as often as needed to pass) you're eligible to receive your certificate and, most importantly, add this achievement to your resume.

The 'Accomplishments' or 'Education' sections of most resumes can be thin, but with Great Employee Certification on your resume, your own resume's
'Accomplishments Section' will shine. Hiring managers will take notice, and they'll be impressed! After all, you took the effort to study how to be a Great
Employee...because it matters to you. And because you showed that being a great employee matters to you, it'll matter to managers when they award you the job.

What HR Managers say about the book?

Since the book was introduced in 2006 it has not only been used by people like you to enhance their skills and resumes but many prestigious companies have also given the book to their staff as a training tool including AT&T, Canada Revenue Agency, Morton Salt, Simmons Mattress, Eastern Bank, Detroit
Family Health, and Cedar Sinai Hospital.
