How To Become The Best Employee At Your Work

Monday, Aug 16, 2021, 8:27 am

1.Work Late

Stay late. When everybody is running for the door at 5pm, stay at your desk and continue to work. There surely will be stuff you finish and get ahead for the next day. Your employer will take notice of your dedication and when it comes time for promotions and raises you will be at the top of the list.

2.Be Confident

Walk with confidence, speak with confidence, and learn with confidence. This by no means means to be arrogant. You want to show that you are ready, willing and able to do any job, and give your employer and co-works confidence in you. The objective is to be seen as someone who can handle any task.

3.Don't Procrastinate

Don't procrastinate and let things pile up. This is a sure way to get behind and begin to look like you have bad time management. Organize your desk, prioritize tasks and tackle the most important. A pile of folders on a desk is a sign of laziness rather than over work.

4.Take Criticism Gracefully

Accept constructive criticism and learn from it. All too often employees take criticism too personally and it deflates them. Some act out, sliding down a slope that leads to bad behavior and ultimately losing their job. Accept the criticism and strive to be better. Your employer will see the change and realize you are putting in the effort.

5.Don't Argue

Don't argue at work. Always try to keep your cool and be diplomatic. No matter where you are on the chain, arguing always shows you in a bad light. Debating or negotiating should be done in a professional manner without raising your voice or pointing fingers. Never attack someone personally, it's always just business.

6.Volunteer For Projects

Don't shy away from taking on more work. If a project becomes available, volunteer to take it on. By doing a great job on the project you will not only gain recognition for your work, but also for being a team player. Employers reward team players with advances in their careers.

7.Dress Appropriately

Dress for the job you want. It's not enough to just adhere to a dress code, dress like the people in the positions you want dress. If all your peers dress business casual but your managers and supervisors were a more formal business attire, by mimicking them they actually see you more as a potential peer.


8.Don't Gossip

Gossip can be a very slippery slope. While you may think it gains you more friends, or helps you climb the ladder if you share gossip with your supervisor or manager, it can actually do the opposite. You will be seen as someone who can't be trusted with information, and won't be told important information when it counts.

9.Be Part Of The Solution

Be part of the solution not the problem. Employees tend to whine about problems at work and it can be easy to fall into the group mental, but stand out from the rest by offering solutions. Make suggestions, or try some of the solutions out first, and lead by example.


10.Be Punctual

Being punctual is a great way to ingratiate yourself into your employer's good graces. Even being five minutes later shows lack of caring about your job. Try to aim to arrive ten minutes early and you will gain respect and climb the corporate ladder more quickly. Tardiness is a sign of laziness.

11.Cross Train

Cross train. No, that doesn't always apply to exercise, it applies to the workforce as well. Learn other people's jobs that affect yours so that you can jump in when needed, and not have to depend on others to be successful. Be careful of stepping on co-worker's toes, but they may welcome the help when presented tactfully.


12.Do Your Job Well

Nothing makes an employer happier than an employee that does a good job. After all, that's why you were hired ... to do a job. Learning your job entirely so that you can perform every task, work independently, be self motivated and come up with ideas on your own, is essential.
