Everyone could use some help

Community Call


Everyone needs help.

Finding help is a challenge. Everywhere you go, nearly everyone you talk to is short-staffed. Health providers, schools, small, medium and big businesses and organizations can’t find enough help.

We all find ourselves depending on short staffs and thankful for the help and reliability of those that have a work ethic. They understand that coming to work and showing up on time is the first, most important responsibility of getting a job done. If you have a job, you earn a living and a way to contribute, to help provide services and products for patients, students, customers and readers.

According to Wikipedia, work ethic is a belief that work and diligence have a moral benefit and an inherent ability, virtue or value to strengthen character and individual abilities. It is a set of values centered on importance of work and by determination or desire to work hard. Social ingrainment of this value is considered to enhance character through hard work that is respective to an individual’s field of work.

Proponents of a strong work ethic consider it to be important for achieving goals. A work ethic is a set of moral principles a person uses in their job. To develop and process a strong work ethic will inevitably result in the production of high-quality work which is consistent. The output motivates individuals to stay on track.

An individual’s needs and goals are fueled by a good work ethic and is considered as a source of self respect, satisfaction and fulfillment. A good work ethic is about getting things done; making a difference by focusing on activities that a person is responsible for; being available, reliable and conscientious.

It is a desire to do a task well, being vigilant and organized; creating a habit and habitat for success by engaging in tasks that provide strength and energy to achieve one’s ultimate goals and embracing positive attitude.

Work ethic has been measured by seven factors: self-reliance, ethical behavior, valuing leisure time, hard work, giving importance of work, productive use of time and delay of gratification.

No organization wants to work short-staffed.

Benjamin Franklin’s ethical writings coined the phrase “time is money.” The future is counting on that.
