February is often regarded as the month of love and a perfect time to reflect on ways we can avoid losing love for our jobs. Factors such as long work hours, assignment overload and tight deadlines can lead to stress and burnout. According to a recent Harvard Business Review article titled “Why Some People Get Burned Out and Others Don’t,” employees can reign in job stress with three mental shifts. First, “don’t be the source of your own stress.” Try to avoid the need for perfectionism and constant high achievement. Next, “recognize your limitations.” If you do not have the knowledge or expertise to do something, be honest and ask for help. Finally, “reevaluate your perspective.” Recognize the situation for what it is—a threat to something you value or simply a problem to be solved.
Securing the “free” freight cost auditing services of AMTR is one way to reduce such stress and burnout. Today, as transportation-specific knowledge in many companies wanes, the pressure on those employees left to handle the spectrum of freight-related tasks is increasing. In reflecting on the mental shifts recommended above, a choice to use AMTR Smart Auditing© to augment company operations acknowledges that transportation payment problems can be more efficiently and effectively handled by knowledgeable experts who focus on such issues 100% of the time.
When it comes to freight cost auditing, AMTR can help you to love your job more by handling the tasks you love less, while saving you money at the same time. What’s not to love about that?
